New Rods??

Recommended Posts

Has anyone heard anything/ used either the new abu garcia vendetta rods or the new Wright & McGill Skeet Tessera rods. They both looks really neat, but does anyone know anything about the quality?

try a search on either of the rods. We've had a few threads about them and I'm sure you can find a little information on them but I don't think the Vendettas are even out yet and the Tessara's JUST came out so you aren't going to find too many hands-on reviews.

TW has the flippin stick, and the dropshot rods.  They look ok and are  priced right. I'll probably pick one up to try it. I have a Bucoo and love it, so rods in this price point can be good.

I don't understand why Wright & McGill would use glass/graphite composite blanks on the entire series of Skeet Reese rods.

The way I took it from the start was that was just for the crankin series but I guess not

they also look like a pencil with that cork butt

I thought it looked like someone got a little overzealous, and dipped their fishing rod in chart Spike It... :;)

The Vendettas and the Vengence are out, came out yesterday I think or Friday maybe.  Only 3 models for the Vendetta though at TW,

6'9 MH/F casting

7' MH/F casting

7' M/F spinning

The quality question you are asking about cannot be addressed until they have been on the market for a year or two.

I'm surprised at how many people buy rods and reels "because they look cool."

I don't see why, its a factor of the rod.  Looks play a huge role, I do not choose my rods based on looks alone, but if it comes down to rod 1 vs rod 2 and I like them equally the same and they both fulfill the same purpose, it will come down to which one is more aesthetically pleasing to me.

If they are new rods that never have been on the market before ,

how do you know which one will be the best ?

I'd like to have a dollar for every time that I've read here that some one is going to buy a certain rod because it looks cool.
