I have been talked into buying many high priced rods over the years by reviewers and friends and they were mostly good equipment and I liked them and used them. No more! The first time I fished with this Veritas rod I felt like this was THE ONE. I have never handled a rod this good at any price period. I have been catching just about everything in the water this season, largest a 5lb. 9oz. LMB. I have my 7ft. medium action paired with a Revo PRM30 spinning reel and I can't imagine a situation in which I would choose one of my others over this combo. The only negative, I now have to replace a lot of expensive rods as I just won't use the others anymore. Abu Garcia you got this one perfect. Great sensitivity, strong, weighs nothing, and a truly beautiful pearl white color. The split handle and your reel seat allows for every nibble to be felt and strikes feel like hammer blows on my arm. This rod is perfect and I would like to recommend it to everyone as it will become their go to rod.

Abu Garcia Veritas: Shall set you free...

As they say, "the TRUTH will set you free" and that is exactly what the Veritas does -- by far the best rod in the Abu Garcia line up! Currently, I have three Veritas rods in my stable that are my "go-to" sticks when out on the water -- the 6'6" M spinning rod, the 7'0" M casting, and 7'3" MH casting rod. I assure you there will be more! The rods are sharp looking -- there is no mistaking you are throwing a Veritas as the BMW Alpine White gleams brightly in your hands. What is even better is you can look good all day long because the EVA handles feel great and are extremely light in your hands which help you to fish without fatiguing. Beyond the good looks, this rod has it all -- its nicely balanced, extremely sensitive and has great backbone to it to set the hook and wrestle fish out of the thickest of cover. The Veritas performs well above its pricepoint and is one of the best values on the market. Just as the name suggests...I speak the Veritas!

Great Rod Purchase

I recently purchased several of the Veritas rods for filliping and pitching 3/8 up to 3/4 ounce jigs and soft plastics. I was a little skeptical at first, as i had always used St.Croix and G.Loomis rods, and was worried about the quality and action for the price. Boy was I ever pleasantly surprised! Not only did thy look good, but they were much lighter than expected and even though I purchased the 7'6" models, they were very accurate even in close quarters, and the sensitivity was great! I used these in all our videos that I did for our website and people were asking about them from the first time they saw me catch real trophy class largemouth on them in the videos this year. These are a quality rod even at a much higher price! Thanks again for a great product and I am looking forward to using the new Verdict rods I just purchased this year and hope to land the next state record on one of them. Tight lines, Steve

I had a vendetta that snapped the first day on the water so I "upgraded" to the Veritas in hopes that it would be a little stronger and more durable. I took it out for its first day on the lake with me and I'm happy to report that it did just fine. I caught about 6 or 7 medium sized bass and the Veritas did a great job. I was a little concerned about how it would do after my experience with the Vendetta but "so far so good". I like the sensitivity... it really transmits all sensations from the lure extremely well. My only concern is that it seems to be a little too light for my comfort... I'm afraid that if I hook into a large 10-15 pounder it won't have the backbone to get it to the boat. That's pure speculation on my part since I haven't hooked anything larger than about 7-8 pounds with it so far. But it's in the back of my mind none the less. Probably due to my experience with the Vendetta. Hopefully my concerns will prove to be unwarranted and I'll be using my new Veritas for years to come. Only time will tell, I'll let you know more after my next outing.

The Veritas is a great rod in it's price range. The rod is very light and uses quality quides with Ti frames and SiC inserts. The sensitivity of the rod is just average, however it will hold its own with other rods in its price range. The power and action of the rod are slightly underated, Med power rods feel a little more like a MH .The actions are a little underated as well. Before you buy one of these rods you should hold one in hand, so you are sure of what you are buying. Build quality of the rod is just average, with lots of extra epoxy on the quides and hook holder, the wraps are loose on allot of the rods and you will need to look at several rods to find one that is neatly built. Overall a very good rod at its price point, but it is not in the same class as the Dobyns, Kistlers, Powell, and most St. Croix rods.
