Abu Garcia Veritas Winch
Description and Application: Standard on the new Veritas Winch casting rods feature Powerlux 100, which increases the rod’s strength by 15% while also reducing the overall weight by 5%. The rod family provides anglers with the kind of performance, sensitivity and durability they depend on—meeting needs that are required in all bass or walleye fishing situations. The Powerlux 100 resin system evenly distributes nano particles between each carbon fiber to enhance the rod’s performance and strength by preventing cranks in the blank material. Ultimately, the technology helps produce higher break strengths and improved impact and fracture resistance. There are five rods in the Winch series measuring 7 feet to 7 feet and 11 inches, all in a moderate action.
Staff Perspective: I’ve spent a great deal of time in the boat with these Veritas rods, and I can confirm their quality and reliability. They fit well in your hand—ergonomically friendly, as they like to say—making arm fatigue a minimal concern because they’re so lightweight. Plus, I love having the vast array of actions within arm’s reach to effectively employ any technique needed.
