Vendetta: New Look, Less Weight
Friday, December 07, 2012
Second-generation product introductions typically only get a minor facelift. The new Abu Garcia Vendetta rod series shifts gears with new cosmetics and a new lighter-weight construction, making it a perfect match for Abu Garcia Revo SX spinning and low-profile baitcasting reels.
The Vendetta one-piece rods start with a 30-ton graphite rod blank with new IntraCarbon
technology to give the rod a much lighter feel that will greatly reduce felt weight by the angler.
Vendetta rods are outfitted with customized stainless-steel guides with Zirconium inserts and
custom blank-through reel seats. These components provide a lightweight, strong-performing rod that's perfect for all-day use.
The split-grip handle is made from high-density EVA with a one-piece machined, anodized
aluminum lockdown for the most secure rod to reel management. As a final touch, the butt cap is
laser-etched with the Abu Garcia crest and a Texas-rig hook keeper is added.
Eleven spinning models are available ranging from a 6’3” to 7'4". The 11 casting rods range from 6'3" to 7'6".
The MSRP for the Vendetta series is $79.95. For more about Abu Garcia, click here.
