Abu Garcia recently introduced the new high-performance Fantasista Regista series of rods that are a match for high-end Revo reels.
The Fantasista rods are constructed using unique Tetra axial carbon construction. The special carbon wrapping process provides incredible strength and sensitivity in a lightweight design. On the water, this translates into exceptional bite detection and superior castability, says the company.
Generously equipped with Fuji skeletal reel seat and Fuji Titanium Alconite K guides, the rod is equipped with a micro-guide system that allows anglers to increase casting distance while maintaining accuracy throughout the cast. The Fantasista also provides a split-grip design to enhance feel while reducing weight throughout the rod.
The Abu Garcia Fantasista Regista has a retail price of $499.95. Models weigh between 3.7 ounces and 5.0 ounces. The Fantasista is available in three spinning models and six baitcast models. All Fantasista rods are tuned for technique-specific applications and will be available fall 2014.
