Abu Garcia Veritas Rods

Recommended Posts

Looks like all the folks who rushed out to buy the vendettas kinda jumped the gun.... looks like Michael Iaconelli will be fishing this rod at the Bassmaster Classic tournament coming in a couple of weeks. check out the preview at TT http://www.tackletour.com/previewabugarciaveritas.html

  Just a question.   Why do you think they jumped the gun?  I mean the Vendettas are some nice rods, that everyone was talking about this time in 09.  Now AG has come out with the same scenario, introducing a new rod early in the year, but with plans on releasing it to the public later on in the year.  This will give those who purchased the Vendettas a whole year to fish it, see if they like it, and then possibly move on to another rod that is about $20 more than what the rod they bought last year cost, with a few more upgrades.  I've purchsed two Vendettas and will probably purchase another one, since the Veritas will not be available.  But when it does, more than likely I will get one to see how it fishes and how it fits into how I fish.

I see this as an AG tactic to get to nibble on their first cast, get a hook in you, then come back next time with another presentation and get you to bite again.........Man those marketing tactics are something else >:)

I seriously doubt that anyone who bought a vendetta, bought it under the assumption that Ike would be fishing them at the classic. There are gonna be guys fishing the new Duckett rods and Skeet will be fishing the tessera rods, doesn't mean I'm gonna go buy one.

With the whole "nano" tecnology thing, and the white blank, I can't help but suspect these rods are ALOT like the Duckett rods. :)

They were on display at the Bassmaster Classic and they were nothing like the Duckett rods. The Abu rods use a standard guide system and looked a 100x better. With that said the Duckett rods felt good in your hand which is to be expected when there aren't any guides (not sure micro guides count as guides). Needless to say I picked up a Duckett to see what it's all about and will let you know what I find out.
