ICAST 2020: New Freshwater Spinning Rods

ICAST 2020: New Freshwater Spinning Rods

Strength, sensitivity and sleek design are prevalent features evident in the new batch of freshwater spinning rods coming your way after browsing the rod section of ICAST Online. From new signature series models built to a pro angler’s exact specifications to new additions to existing product lines, the focus increasingly seems to be on delivering high-quality components that offer high-end performance at price points that suit many anglers.

Daiwa | Rebellion

Among the 19 new blank designs in the Rebellion lineup are three spinning models – all 7-foot – all of which incorporate Daiwa's HVF Carbon Technology, which creates a smaller, lighter, more rigid blank. The X-45 Bias construction provides strength and prevents twisting while the Air Sensor reel seat adds sensitivity. Available in medium light, medium and heavy action.

Ever Green International | Combat Stick Gizmo Special

Specially designed to fish small Ever Green Gizmo topwater baits. The action is designed to cast the lighter baits and the double extra-fast tip enhances the pull/vibration on the top of the water. The Solid Mega Top tip adds additional sensitivity and Fuji Tangle Free K-Guides allow small jigs to be cast farther.
