Abu Garcia Vendetta rod?

Recommended Posts

I just got a 6'3" med casting.  I'd say for the money its great.  Exceptionally light.  There seems to have been good quality control in building it. Matches up with my new Revo SX perfect, made for each other.

i've got a 7' mh vendetta rod with the new revo sx.  love it.  great for the price.  light & strong. 

I just don't like the design of the butt.  it gets scruff and scratched easily, then could probably cut yourself on it too if you're not careful.

I've got a 6'9" MH.  I like the feel of the rod and the length. I think they're a pretty great rod for the price.

It balances well with a Steez, Revo Premier and a Fuego.  It really balances too well for me if that makes sense.  I've yet to stick a fish with it and I think it's because of the balance.  I'm used to fishing rods that are a little tip heavy and I think they kind of help me fish.

It's a nice rod though. I was playing around with it and hooked up with a few fish... I really did not like the way it held them but I got the rod for crankbaits and was doing spinners so I suspect that was the culprit.

It casts VERY well with a Fuego.  :)

I am looking at one too. I did look at the 7 ft. in the MH and the M and they are almost the same tip. The tip actino on these rods are stiff. Not sure which one I want the MH od the M? :-/ I also did take a peek at the Gander rod that is 54 millions and it is on sale for $ 59.

Also looking at those two. I can't decide on one or the other.

I have 4 Vendetta rods, the 6'9" spinning and 3 casting rods, the 6'3", 6'9" and 7' med moderate.  Reliable, responsive, sensitive and handles well with a fish on the other end of the line.

I can't speak for the whole line up but I can comment on the 7' medium spinning. It seems to be a pretty good rod for its price range but it is tip heavy. None of my spinning reels balance well with it.

I think I am leaning toward the Vendetta, but not sure yet on the M or the MH! :-?

Ive used mine on 4 outings now and I gotta say I like it better than more $ rods I have.  If the metal cap bothers you or gets gouged try a rubber butt boot. Not the type from a hardware store but the ones Bass Pro sells for fly rod reel seats, it will fit perfect and be less obtrusive.

I just "broke one in" on Sunday. Only caught a rock bass on it (LOL little SOB hit a baby paca craw). It's paired with a premier Revo. So far very nice set up. It's a 6-6 MH XF. If I remember right.

I have 3 of these, 6'3"m, 7'0"mh, 7'3"mh.  These rods have all performed VERY WELL for me.  Great sensitivity, casts very well, feels great to me.  I've been using my 7ft rods more, and the 6'3" sits on the rack begging me to take it out more.  Now take it, it is not a STEEZ or a GLOOMIS stick, but it handles very very well for it's price range, I've been pleased with mine, and alot of others have been with theirs also.

I have the 7' MH and I like it a lot for that price. I'm still looking for a Revo S to put on it so I can't really comment too much.

I went out this weekend looking for a new spinning rod and when I picked up the Vendetta, I was not impressed with it. It felt very heavy and didn't feel balanced at all. I'm not a split grip fan in general, but all split grip spinning rods I've ever had or picked up feels very tip heavy.

I went back to the two Gander stores by me and I was looking at the Gander rods and the Vendetta again! And I will be buying the Vendetta for sure and I will be putting the RC BC reel on her! The problem I am having is one store has only 6'6" Mh and the other store that is about 20 miles from me has the 7'0" mh. I like 7' rods but maybe the 6'6" will do!  :-/
