abu_garcia Veritas Rods deliver an incredible lightweight feel, but with a powerful heavyweight punch that's perfect for battling big bass. This strong 30-ton graphite blank utilizes Nanotechnology to offer the reduced weight and increased compression strength anglers need.

Abu Garcia designed Extreme Exposure Reel Seats with increased blank contact to offer a better feel with more sensitivity and responsiveness when working baits. Titanium alloy guides with SiC inserts for a lightweight, balanced blank. Texas-rigged hook keeper. High-density EVA handles for nonslip comfort.
