Abu's Verdict

Recommended Posts

I'm not much on Abu Garcia's rods, but this one looks good. I would like to hear more about it once they start getting them in people's hands though. The previews on TT.

The fact that they designed it with an adjustable handle seemed interesting. They're pricing it around $130-$140. Like I said, can't real get a good enough opinion on it until they give out some more info. after the field tests.

Im pretty sure these are supposed to be their premium rods.  Whether they will be or not is to be decided after release.

I think that adjustable handle will upset a lot of people if it slips.  I bury the rod handle in my ribs, armpit, or on my hip sometimes when fighting fish.

Pass.

That's what I was thinking as well, I think this is premium for them as of right now.

The path to wisdom is to form your opinions based upon your experiences rather than second hand information.
