You shouldn’t worry about breaking it


A lot of folks are fans of the Veritas lineup. One of the best anglers I know had a front deck full of them for many years. They’re known as being sensitive and affordable. But if there was one complaint I heard, it was that they tended to break at times. 

I’ll say confidently, however, that the newest iteration of the Abu Garcia Veritas Spinning Rod is built like a tank. It’s manufactured with 30-ton carbon fibers that are coated in 3M Powerlux resin to increase the blank’s strength by at least 15 percent. 

Now, I didn’t do any math equations while I was testing this rod. But I have definitely been made a believer of its newly improved strength. I have boat flipped bass up to 3 pounds with this rod and it has held up wonderfully to the stress. I’ve also thrown it into the bed of my truck to hit a ponds on the weekends and it has held up remarkably well. This is a huge “plus” in my mind and was one of the things that stood out the most to me throughout my testing.
