Aaron Martens Edge Rods

Recommended Posts

For those of you who repeatedly say they could care less on aesthetics of fishing gears as long as it performs this will put your beliefs to the test :)

As some of you know Aaron Martens left Megabass to sign with Enigma Fishing. With Martens expertise in rods I believe these will be good rods. The colors are....interesting. Thought?

I haven't been following this story. Is it Edge, as in North Fork Composites, as in GaryLoomis?

Sorry I will go edit my original post. It's Enigma fishing and his line is called Aarons Edge.

Sorry, I wasn't calling you out. Just curious. I have a NFC blank, still in the tube, waiting for time to build a new rod. I've been interested in NFC ever since hearing that THE MAN was back in the business.

I won't vote them out because of color but the reel seat makes it a no deal for me. Being able to design his own line of rods was just a money making decision. That's my thoughts anyhow.

I know aesthetics are not supposed to matter, but when I look at those aesthetic choices, I get the impression of a rod that they are in a rush to get to market. At the very least, that would make me hesitant to be among the first to take the plunge and invest in one. A lot remains to seen, of course. Too early in the process to be too critical. I look forward to getting the rods in my hands.

I think aesthetics do matter. Why should you are drop your hard-earned cash on something you aren't going to like looking at? Especially since the price range is so competitive, with many alternatives that have the aesthetics and performance.

Everyone has to eat and this is a deal he can't pass up. I'm sure money wise Megabass can't even come close to this offer. It's just really shocking that with him using MB rods for so long when it's his time to have total control he comes out with something so generic looking. I wish him the best though.

Aaron Martens is my favorite Pro, his name isn't enough for me to buy something that looks "rushed" and very cheap looking.

I don't see what the big deal is, the name Edge was already taken.

The microwave guide system is a nice feature on spinning rods and perform exceptionally well. I'm not sold the casting setup. They won't hurt anything but the claims are bit of a reach imo. The blanks are likely a typical intermediate modulus from one of the common sources. Not a bad thing, but nothing innovative either. Once someone gets to handle one we'll know more. Aesthetically, ummmm to each his own. No worse than the orange carrot sticks or hideous yellow skeet rods. The name, what's in a name? The Enigma & Aaron's references will likely become more common than the Edge.
