This rod is extreamly light and strong. I can hold this all day without getting tired. I ilke it so much, I bought 4 of them at a great price.
I have two of these now. Bought the first one from bass pro for $99 so $76 shipped from Walmart is a great deal for an already great priced rod. It's super light weight and sensitive with plenty of backbone. It's just fun as heck fighting fish with these rods. The white color just tops it off. They look awesome. I'll pretty much only buy veritas rods now. The micro guides also make a big difference. They feel lighter than the standard guide rods because the weight is more evenly distributed down the shaft. If you hold them next to each other the standard guide rod will want to tip down while the micro guide rod will hold parallel to the ground. Abu Garcia also has a 3 year warranty. If it breaks for any reason, send it in, get a new rod back. No questions asked. I had one break at the tip because of the rod getting dinged and the turn around was great!
Great rod...great for bass and stripers
I have been using these rods for a few years and they are very sensitive and durable.
I just recently bought one of these and it preformed extremely well easily the best rod I own and very sensitive and extremely light weight
i have only had it for 4 months but it is amazing, the one piece 7 foot medium rod is perfect. so durable and sensitive, could not ask for more.
This rod was great and one of the best purchases ive ever made. I say was because my brother casted it off the side of the boat, but was great while i had it.
I have fished with this for 12 days now and I have caught 7 Red Drum in Kemah, TX, smallest 17 inch to 27 inch. I have also just landed my biggest fish to date with this rod, and I'm 34 yrs old, which was a 39" 42 lb Black Drum from the shore casting in a channel. I had an Abu Garcia 6500 C3 reel and Trilene 15 lb flourocarbon test line. I can feel a strong current as a vibration on this rod from the sensitivity. Just like their reels, Abu Garcia re-invents the wheel like no other!
What a great rod, bought the 7-3 med hy and is by far the lightest rod and most sensitive I have ever held in my hand...thanks for taking a load off the arm and shoulder...
I have now purchased a total of 10 of these rods in various models after purchasing my first one and using it just weeks ago. The sensitivity and action of the rod(s) were amazing not mention how much less fatiqued I was after casting my crankbait for over 8 hours. I purchased my next rod the next day for some flipping/pitching. Needless to say, I was so impressed that decided to replace all of my casting rods with these. My next endeavor is to try one of the spinning rods and perhaps my entire tournament trail will be better this season with the improvements of adding these rods to my "game". You only have to try one to be convinced how great they are. Buddy V.
normally I use carrot sticks but decided to give the
Veritas a try and I find it is lighter than the carrot
Stick gold for half the price. I would definitely
Recommend it. I was very impressed with the
Reel seat and blance of the rod.
I bought this rod as a stop gap to fill a need i had fishing locally for yellowbelly & bass with a lighter rod . Every so often I would hook onto a larger cod & would get into trouble in tight quarters! Not wanting to fork out to much I got a Veritas & have found myself reaching for this rod more often than not ! Its light & sensitive enough to cast small poppers , then its also beefy enough to flog huge plugs all day without getting saw . Cant say enough !!!!
I purchased this rod two weeks ago and fitted the rod with a 9540 Pflueger Patriarch reel. I've owned hundreds of rods in my life and never rated one worthy of writing a review about but this one is different. Yesterday whilst chasing Australian Salmon (around 4kg) I hooked a shark that was feeding on the school of fish. The shark was around the 1.5-2M length and when I noticed its size I thought this rod might not be up to the task. It took a good 15 minutes to get the shark to the point where we could land it and I must say the rod held up admirably during the whole fight. If others are having problems with this rod, I'd suggest its your line strength, drag settings, or lack patience that is causing the rod to break. Well done Abu Garcia, you are onto a winner with this one :)
The Veritas is a great rod, I got a 7ft Medium for cranking and it is a great rod. It has great comfort in the handle and I love the white color to it. I plan to get more of these rods later this year.
These rods are very light, with great components for the price. The sensitivity is good for the price as well. The butt cap, though stylish, is very hard and can make hooksets uncomfortable at the end of a long day catching fish. Compared to most other rods these tend to run at least one power stiffer to me. Overall still a great rod.
The Abu Garcia Veritas is by far the best rod I own. Its great for bass & red fish. I use it every time I go out on the water. It is well worth the money and will last a long time. It is my favorite rod and I would recommend it to any angler.
Bought rod to use in Florida. Came home to Cape Cod for the summer months catching stripers trolling with wire line and rapala deep divers. Decided for fun to tie the rapala onto my 7 ft medium action veritas rod with Abu garcia revo spinning reel with 12 pound momoi hi-catch mono. Trolling with this set up, hooked and landed a 42 inch striped bass approx. 35 lbs.. Not the normal use for the rod but it handled the job with flying colors. Can't wait to get back to Florida and pick up several more to replace my aging Falcon Originals. Great rod!!!!!!
Best rod i've ever picked up. Extremely light weight, super sensitive, and strong enough to handle whatever you throw at it. Casting all day long with this rod is so easy i just wish i had a spinning reel that was worth of such a rod. Keep up the good work Abu and i'll definitely be buying more in the future.
this rod is great! it is very light so you can fish with it all day without wearing out your arm, but it is still very sensitive. i paired this rod with a revo s reel and the combo just cannot be beat.
I was recently talked into purchasing the Abu Garcia Veritas and I am glad I did. I've used many other rods and reels and after trying out the veritas paired up the the revo sx I will never buy another brand again. I am now a Abu Garcia fan FOR LIFE!
Rod has excellent action,weight, balance, performance, strength the whole 9 yards! If you were questioning buying question no more.
