Product Reviews

Abu Garcia® Villain® 2.0 Spinning Rod is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I AM A FULL TIME GUIDE AND HAVE HAD ALOT OF RODS IN MY DAY BUT FOR THE MONEY THIS IS ONE OF THE LIGHTES AND MOST SENSITIVE ROD I'V HAVE USED ( GOOD JOB GARCIA )
Date published: 2016-03-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money I bought this rod for largemouth bass thus I went with the 7ft med/heavy. This is the most sensitive rod I've fished and when I compare it to my fathers St. Croix and G.looms rods, I personally feel like this has got them beat. The hook sets are great and I've landed a few accidental muskies just fine. Get a lightweight high quality reel, braided line and this rod. The slightest bites will feel like earthquakes in your hands...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have a 6'8" and a 7'. Absolutely love these rods. The way the cast is amazingly smooth. Only complaint is that I can't get the spinning rod in a straight heavy action. I have multiple other Abu rods and reels. They are the only rods and reels I will use. I have tried many others and for the money you just can't beat Abu Garcia.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Rod! Awesome rod! Extremely sensitive & light weight rod. The way the reel sits it's the perfect fit in my hand, and they are very well balanced rods. I use these rod mostly for walleye fishing using jigs and blade baits.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Quality I purchased the original 1.0 version of this rod that failed after a few uses. Abu was kind enough to send a replacement 2.0 version of the rod even though I no longer had a receipt. The replacement 2.0 rod has now failed as well. The guides are breaking due to what I believe is a failure of the resin holding them to the rod blank. I have experienced this issue twice. I have many other rods and have never dealt with a similar issue. This rod was not cheap! I have discussed this issue in length with Abu Garcia's warranty department and the only resolution is a slight discount on a new rod. NO THANKS!! I am not spending another dime on a product that has repeatedly failed and a warranty that is laughable at best. There are plenty of other companies who value their customer and offer great gear at even better prices. I am meticulous with my gear and Abu Garcia lost a customer that owns many of its items for life
