Abu Garcia
« on: February 20, 2015, 09:25:11 AM »
Abu Garcia Veritas 6'6" med action spinning rods are a must for me. And for 100$ a pop you cant go wrong (in my opinion) Good backbone. Light. Comfortable to hold all day.  the last foot is nice and soft (but not Uglystick soft) for a good set with soft plastics (houdini shads super flukes senkos etc) but still tough enough for when you're throwin frogs in the jungle. The snap is perfect for fishing jerkbaits. To me its the best all around rod i own (and i have quite a few). This may be biased considering I just love Abu's gear in general. I fish em with Revo and Orra reels and love it. I also fish an Abu 7' med Villain. A little stiffer in the last foot than I prefer but still a very solid sensitive rod. With a dimpled colorado blade spinner bait and braided line that rod will vibrate out of your hand! haha. very sensitive. I cannot speak to Abu's customer service and for good reason. I've simply never had issues with any of their equipment. I snapped a handle on a Veritas once but its not their fault that I slammed the hatch of the Tahoe on the rod because I'm not paying attention haha. Anyway just figured I'd give them a plug. Great gear cant see myself ever fishing a different brand. My wife is a Shimano lady and thats another whole topic. But check em out if you havent already

I believe Abu makes some great stuff. I have dealt with their customer service on a limited basis and it has always been very good.

Thanks for the review on the rod. Good info  :)

And unless I'm mistaken they have a new model Veritas out now...??...kinda like what they did with the Vendettas.  Like a "re-release" for lack of a better term. Regardless...Abu Garcia For Life

Nice. I'll probably end up ordering one soon as well. Got the Veracity the other day had an extra Orra reel layin around. Just gotta buy some power pro and wait for the ice to thaw. Let us know how you like the new Veritas. Abu Garcia For Life!
