Lightweight is fashion in rod design, yet many designers ignore the most important factors of balance and strength. The Veritas series of rods provide extreme lightweight design and focus mainly on the balance and compressive strength anglers must have. Nano Technology manipulates graphite on an atomic level for 2,5 times the impact resistance of standard graphite rods. Now you can count on your rod to stand up to nicks and dings that make other rods snap under pressure. 30 Ton graphite with Nano Technology. Titanium alloy guides with SIC insert. Abu Garcia designed extreme exposure reel seat. One piece aluminum screw down hood. High density EVA handle.
