Abu Garcia Villain Casting Rods


Abu Garcia Villain Casting Rods provide the advancement of cutting edge, ultra-lightweight technology built into the core of the Villain rod. By using our unique low resin content graphite, the Villain takes on a jaw dropping balanced and lightweight feel. Low Resin Content graphite utilizes advanced resins that allow less resin to be used in the construction of the graphite rod. This allows the construction of a rod that is lighter in the hand and more sensitive than traditional graphite rods, without sacrificing strength.

The combination of the C6 Total Exposure Reel Seat and 40 Ton graphite provide optimum sensitivity by allowing vibrations to be transmitted directly to the angler. The 40 Ton rating indicates the highest grade of graphite in Abu Garcia rods.

Features of Abu Garcia Villain Casting Rods include:

  • Titanium alloy guides with Ti inserts allow for a super lightweight guide giving the ultimate in rod performance
  • C6 total exposure reel seat gives complete contact to the rod for the ultimate sensitivity
  • High density EVA gives greater sensitivity and durability
  • Carbon wrapped guides reduces weight
  • Texas rigged hook keeper for all bait applications
  • Split grip design
  • VLCM models feature micro guides

 abu love your villains
Pros: well balanced with MGX reel
Comments: I have two MH Villain rods but wanted a M rod for jigging. When it came hooked it up with my mgx reel and on the first cast felt bite before the jig hit the water and caught a nice fish. Next cast caught another fish. This rod is light has great sensitivity and seems strong as I had no problem bring in 8 pound jack. Next day same thing caught fish on my first two casts. really like this rod looking at replacing my veritas rod with another villain med
 Decent rod

Comments: After some e-mailing back and forward with about the proces of international shipping I orderd the Villain VLCM71-5. I'm still waiting from my braid from another shop so I havent actually used the rod but it feels great in terms of finish and comfort. And as far as the customer service, they were very helpfull and quick to respond to my questions.
