Whether you are targeting inshore species like redfish, trout and stripers, or larger freshwater species like muskie, the same high performance NanoTechnology utilized in the Veritas series is now available in actions perfectly suited for these applications. Introducing the new Volatile™ casting rod from Abu Garcia. Additionally the wall of the rod blank is thicker for added backbone, strength and durability. Nano Technology provides 2.5 times the impact resistance of standard graphite fishing rods through the manipulation of graphite on an atomic level. This prevents microscopic nicks and dings that cause other rods to snap. Now you can count on your rod to stay intact when that all important fish is on the line. The 30 Ton rating indicates a superior grade of graphite. The result is a lighter rod with increased sensitivity. The higher the tonnage, the stiffer the fibers used in the construction of the rod. Stiffer fibers more efficiently transmit vibrations to your hand so you can feel more strikes.
