Gear Review: Abu Garcia LTD Series

What is it?

Abu Garcia LTD Series

What sets it apart?

Providing exceptional performance and durability with a comfortable, well-controlled grip was the idea behind Abu Garcia’s new LTD Program rods and combos. Combining Abu Garcia’s iconic features with custom rod grips by Winn, this lineup includes the Vendetta LTD and Veritas LTD standalone rods, along with the Revo X LTD and Revo S LTD spinning and casting combos. Designing this series with Winn advanced polymer Dri-Tac grips, Abu Garcia ensured a cushioned point of contact for a full day of fishing.

How do I use it?

Built with lightweight, 30-ton graphite designs, the Vendetta rods boast IntraCarbon technology that creates a lightweight barrier for maximum durability with no weight increase. Starting with the same 30-ton graphite, the Abu Garcia Veritas rods employ Sublayer Armor with high strength fibers that substantially improve hoop strength and durability. Available in 6-6 and two 7-0 models, the Vendetta LTD rods include Stainless steel guides with zirconium inserts and extreme exposure reel seats. Available in 6-6, 7-0 (two) and 7-3 models, Veritas LTD rods feature a Robotically Optimized Casting System (ROCS) guide train for long casts with lighter lures and titanium alloy guides with ultra light zirconium inserts.

How much?

Rods $99.95-$119.95 and Combos $149.95-$169.95
