The Abu Garcia Veritas comes with Nano-Technology. When making this rod we focused on the most important factors of making a quality fishing rod, balance and strength. The Veritas series of rods provide extreme lightweight design and focus solely on the balance and compression strength anglers must have. The new Nano-Technology manipulates graphite on an atomic level for improved compression strength. Now you can count on your rod to stand up to nicks and dings that make other rods snap under pressure. The Veritas comes with high density EVA handles for more durability and comfort, and a one piece double aluminum screw down design creates a secure connection. The Abu Designed Extreme Exposure Reel Seats provide increased blank contact and sensitivity. The Veritas also comes with Titanium allow guides with SiC inserts that create a lightweight, balanced blank design, and a Texas-Rigged hook keeper for all bait applications. The VRC66-6 is a 6 foot 6 inch casting rod.
