Abu Garcia’s Vengeance offers a lightweight, high performance rod at an affordable price. Constructed of 24-ton graphite and featuring a comfortable, high-density split EVA handle, the Vengeance is perfect for those looking for a multi-purpose, medium-heavy freshwater rod. Measuring 78-inches in length, the Vengeance sports coated guides, which works well for those using braided line and has a line rating of 12 to 20-pounds. Purchased as combo with the Abu Garcia Black Max reel (co0vered later), we’ve pulled quite a few lunkers using this rod and experienced no issues with cracks or breaks. However, we noted a few customers on the Abu Garcia website mentioning issues with the durability of this rod (http://www.abugarcia.com/products/rods/vengeance ). We believe all points should be considered when making a purchase. Again we’ve found the Vengeance very durable, delivering stellar balance, function and design for a good price.
Cost: $35 – $45 (a combo with with the Black Max baitcaster can be picked up for about $55)
