Abu Rods And Reels

Recommended Posts

So I've been looking at a new topwater combo. What do y'all think of the Abu Garcia Revo Rocket and the Abu Garcia Veracity rod? It might just be me but it's a good lookin combo and the revo rocket appears to be very well built, and the same goes for the veracity. Anyone own any or fished any? Is so let me know what you think

both rod and reel look awesome, I personally would not spend 150 on a topwater rod, but I might pull the trigger on a rocket before too long.

I have several Veritas rods and love them. Not one problem in over 3 years. Also have 2 Revo STX Gen 1 and a Premier that still perform like new. Would like to Try a Rocket.

Abu stuff is great, I personaly use the Vendetta and Veritas rods. I'd think about the Veracity but I hate micro guides, and I think thats all they come with.

I had a Veritas that snapped on its second trip out, but the way I was treated by customer service and the speed at which I received a replacement rod made me give them a second chance! They were great to deal with, and I haven't been disappointed with the second rod. My next rod won't be a Abu only because I am wanting a spinning rod that isn't quite as stiff as they seem to be.

I have 3 Abu reels (Revo 3 STX, Silvermax, and Orra spinning reel) love them all... Just learning to use the baitcasters starting with my Silvermax then will break out the Revo during frog season.

Haven't used any abu rods though but I always hear good things about the Veritas

Hoping to get a Rocket this year as well and planning on throwing it on my frog rod.

I've been in the market for some budget rods and I can't seem to pull the trigger on any of the Abu rods. Too many folks have reported breaking them. I own a Veritas and I love the weight and feel but I'm not sure about the durability yet. I got it late last season. Here are a couple options you may want to consider in the under $100 category:

 

Daiwa Ballistic or Aird

Shimono Sellus

Berkley Lightning Shock

Powell Diesel

St. Croix Triumph (Cabelas carries them)

 

I just don't think you need to spend a bunch on a topwater rod. Sensitivity isn't as big of an issue since it's a visual bite. The action of the rod is more important here. If you're just talking poppers, I'd recommend a moderate action and a medium power. While walk the dog lures will require a faster tip. I use a MHF rod for walking myself. Hope this helps. It's just one man's opinion but I do throw topwaters a ton!!

My brother just happened to have a veritas and a veracity in his office. Here is a pic of the veritas micro guides compared to the veracity guides. I would consider the veracity to have semi micro guides.

Gen 3 revos dont last that long. The internal components arent that great because they wanted to cut down on weight.
