Product Reviews

Virtual Casting Rod is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only rod of it's kind! My Virtual casting rod and the ANGLR app has helped me gain juicy information about the spots I fish, and keep all of it organized (and private). Telling me which spots to fish first, the next time I head back to the zone I just fished by reviewing my previous trips in the app. Once I’m done fishing for the day, after many bait changes, waypoints dropped, and spots fished; I can review what spots and what baits produced fish, by reviewing the information the ANGLR app recorded for me while I was fishing. The 7’ medium heavy 2 piece has been great to me for trolling/casting cranks, blades and bait on the lakes where I live for walleye, pike and trout. A ton of fun to fish!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well worth the money Ive been using these rods for a little while now for the price point and the technology that's in the rod these are unmatched to any others. I have two 7ft med/heavys paired up with the revoXs and Berkley x9 30lb braid to leader. The AnglrApp was something new to me up til i got these rods once I downloaded the app everything was really easy to go through and learn. If you are thinking about getting one of these rods definitely do it they will help you out in more way then just a normal fishing rod.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great versatility! I have been using the Virtual rods for 6 months now, and I’m really impressed with the versatility of them! I’ve used them for jigs, topwaters, swimbaits, chatterbaits, and crankbaits. The rods are sensitive enough to feel bites, and strong enough to haul in big fish. The rods are very easy to pair up and use with the Anglr app to keep track of your day of fishing. I would recommend these rods to anybody looking to up their fishing game! Great to use in a boat, kayak, or just fishing from shore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great action and low weight! I bought this rod to go with my new Abu Garcia Zata reel. I was shocked when I felt how light it was. Even with the reel on it. Mine is a 7 foot medium fast action. Throwing a chartreuse chatterbait today I caught 4 pickerel and ended the day with a largemouth. I am beyond happy I made this purchase alongside the Zata reel! And pairing to the Anglr app makes fishing a little more fun and interesting. Great job Abu Garcia!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The future is here !!! By the simple press of a button your now connected to everything that matter in fishing !!! All the information that provide to the angler such as wind, temperature by a simple click is crazy, add waypoint, create path. The technology is great but cost alot sometime, but Abu Garcia made it REALY affordable by making a techno rod and a great rod at a very good price. The rod even without all the feature is light, sensitive and stronger than ever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Innovation The virtual is so unique with the Anglr button built right in. Great for guys in kayaks, shore fishing, or out on someone else’s boat to mark spots. But beyond that this rod is surprisingly lightweight and well balanced. You can always take the button out too to lighten the rod even further. Good blank still sensitive and responsive.
