Questions & Answers for Abu Garcia Abu Garcia® Verdict Casting Rods


some experience please

Could someone who has experience with high end rods please review this rod after using it for awhile. It really is getting boring reading reviews of rods by people who havin't even used the rod yet or even more than a couple times. I really rely on the reviews of people that I can easily tell they now what they are talking about . I sometimes take a chance and buy new rods before solid reviews are out but I'm bound and determined to wait it out on these rods because when I read all the reviews on the new Abu Garcia rods,Verdicts,Vendettas,Veritas, it's fairly easy to see that most of the reviews have been reviewed a little too soon for me. I myself really waited awhile to review my rods when I first bought some high end rods so that I had someting to base my opions on . Would someone else with the same resolve help me out on these rods. I'm sorry if this affends some of you who review these rods . I'm not angry just impatient for the type of review I'm looking for. Thanks for any help I can get on these rods.

i use this rod quite fequently. i enjoy it but it does have one flaw that in my opinion is minor. the adjustable handle will come unlocked when tucked into your arm while reeling. i use mine fulling extended so i dont notice when it happens. the feel on this rod is tremendous i can feel the difference between lake bottom, tree bumb, rocks, grass and most important fish strikes. i do recommend this rod.

I own the Veritas and the Verdict. I have used the Falcon rods for many years. The two rods mentioned above will perform just as well as my higher dollar rods.

I own Steez, Carrot Stick, St Croix, - several other top of the line rods, and the ABU Garcia Veritas is incredible value for the money. I fish the Carrot Stick (with a Daiwa Zillion) exclusively as a worm Rod, and after buying the ABU Garcia, Veritas (with an ABU Garcia Revo STX,) the combo has me constantly switching. Very responsive, excellent feel, 10 guides, and GREAT value over the higher end. I rate the Veritas a VALUE BUY for sure. PS - I have fished with it at least 30 times since it was introduced by ABU G. I rarely will reccomend a Rod outright, because everyone fishes differently and users will always have different perceptions from the same item. This is an exception to that, as its an exceptional rod for $99.
