Product Reviews

Abu Garcia® Villain™ 2.0 Casting Rod is rated 4.9333 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!! I got the 7'6" heavy for flipping bushes and punching grass and I must say I am not disappointed. I found the thickest stuff I could pitch to and brought fish out no problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great Rod I got a 7-11 Villain Rod right before my TOC on the California Delta. The minute I put this Rod in my hands , I knew I was changing my Heavy FLipping and Punch Rod from the Veritas to the Villain. Its just so much lighter! This will work well when Flipping Grass and Lighter cover as the tip of this Rod is much faster. I was able to build confidence fast with this Rod in my hands. I used this to help win the 2016 Best Bass Tournament Trail T.O.C Championship and take home $20,000 in Cash!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Flipping Rod I was looking for a Flipping Stick for heavy line and jigs...well I found it... awesome action, good balance with a Revo STX reel...handles great !!! If you are in heavy cover and you are not using the Villain....you are at a disadvantage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Agile and Impressive!! I bought this rod (7ft 11inch) a one month today. I have fished the rod two times. The balance is GREAT and my 25lbs fluorocarbon fishing line effortlessly flows through the micro guides. The rod has the perfect action and power!! Most of all the rod is fun to fish with and handles any size fish with ease! Thanks!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight but very strong! I bought this to throw large swimbaits. It performs perfect. It doesn't tire you out but can handle the stress of a 3-4oz bait.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just bought my second Villian This rod is a remarkable design. It's light weight, balanced, cast with ease and has a great bait sensitivity. I'm confident with any bait I throw with it. Hook sets are spot on. I have a 70-6 and I just bought a 76-6. Can't wait for it to arrive. It's frog season where I am. I like working in heavy cover, The two Villians have me covered with the utmost confidence. I highly recommend these rods.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and Strong I bought this rod 2 weeks ago and have used it 4-5 times. I am very impressed with how light, sensitive and strong it is. I enjoy this rod more than the custom rod I had built for me at twice the cost.
