New Product in From Abu Garcia and Fenwick for Review

in Featured, Fishing & Hunting by Carl H. Martens

We had been in contact with our rep at Abu Garcia and Fenwick, but nothing had been confirmed in regards to what product we’d be reviewing.  When Brown Santa arrived at our door, we were overjoyed upon noticing the sender listed and knew it was product from Abu Garcia and Fenwick, but we still weren’t sure what exactly was inside the packages.  Once the three packages were opened, we discovered the following; Abu Garcia Ike Signature Casting Rod, Abu Garcia Revo Beast Reel, and a Fenwick Elite Tech Walleye Rod! 

These packages mark the first of the many we anticipate receiving over the next couple of months as we gear up for the fishing season.  We will be doing individual product tests and reviews as well as doing comparison and “Best of” reviews.  It will be an exciting season.Until those articles are published, familiarize yourself with these three products…

The Ike Signature Series of rods is the result of 3 years of intensive research and development with Elite Series Pro Mike Iaconelli. We worked directly with Mike to design and dial in specific actions that cater to his fishing style. The blank construction consists of 36 ton high modulus graphite for the majority of the series along with some unique, high strain glass (HSG) cranking rods. Fuji reels seats, stainless steel guides and Mike’s unmistakable cosmetics set these rods apart from the competition. With an assortment of 15 different models, Ike’s Signature Series offers the right rod for every fishing situation.
