Abu Garcia Virtual Rods

The new-for-2020 Abu Garcia Virtual rod series features Bluetooth technology that fully integrates with the free ANGLR smartphone app.

The new rods lets you record catches and mark waypoints in a personal logbook with the simple press of a button on the butt of the rod. You can double-click to drop editable waypoints and press and hold the button to indicate a change in tackle. The action to record a catch also compiles location, weather, and water data with the stored catch information.

The Virtual rod does not require charging and has a two-year battery life. It works regardless of cell service for off-the-grid fishing.

The series comprises 10 total conventional and spinning rods ranging from 6-foot, 6-inch medium-fast spinning to 7-foot, 6-inch heavy-fast conventional to cover most bass fishing techniques. All rods are built with 30-ton graphite for a lightweight balanced design, IntraCarbon technology, providing a lightweight barrier to improve durability without adding weight, and stainless steel guides with zirconium inserts.
