Product Features

Recovery, Sensitivity, and Brittleness:

The new Veritas 2.0 Casting Rods from Abu Garcia has excellent features and delivers great performance. It comes with Titanium frame guides, and graphite handles, which makes the rod extremely sensitive and gives it increased strength.

The blank is made of graphite meaning that it is more sensitive and recovers pretty fast when it is cast. A combination of titanium and carbon increases the strength of the rod meaning that it is a less brittle rod and will not break even when it is under extreme pressure. The material used in its construction allows it to accommodate more load before breaking.

Power :

The new Veritas 2.0 casting rod is 7’3’’ long and is a medium heavy rod. It can support line weight of 12-25 lb and a lure weight of 3/8- 1¼. This puts it in a medium power class which makes it an ideal rod for anglers targeting the walleye, channel catfish, and the larger black bass. 

It can also be used to fish leeches and the like. This is a fast action fishing rod with medium power, which you can rely on to target muskellunge, blue catfish, and flathead catfish because it has the power.

The rod flexes in the upper half of the blank and can handle big fish without giving in. Also since it is; lightweight, the angler can fish for many hours without getting tired.
