Best rods for your money!!!!!!
I fish for a living , 275 days a year, and have yet to encounter any problems with any of these rods. The rods have held up to 100's of bass caught by my customers with ZERO failure. Their sensitiveity & strength, is beyond compare in my opinion. Besides, the price of the these rods, make them the best bargain out there.

Awesome rod, END OF STORY!!!
I have fished with this for 12 days now and I have caught 7 Red Drum in Kemah, TX, smallest 17 inch to 27 inch. I have also just landed my biggest fish to date with this rod, and I'm 34 yrs old, which was a 39" 42 lb Black Drum from the shore casting in a channel. I had an Abu Garcia 6500 C3 reel and Trilene 15 lb flourocarbon test line. I can feel a strong current as a vibration on this rod from the sensitivity. Just like their reels, Abu Garcia re-invents the wheel like no other!

Best rod I've ever owned
I bought this rod after many trips to Gander Mtn to compare prices and technologies to other competitors rods. I have always bought lower end rods throughout the years, and finally decided to go with a more advanced one. As soon as I put this thing to use, I noticed the difference. The weight, balance, and feel of the Veritas was incredible. On my first fish, I decided to give the strength a test. When I felt the strike, I gave it the gusto, and it performed magically. Everything about this rod is a plus. I will be putting more of these in my boat soon.

Veritas Winch 7'0 Breaks on hook set :( (2nd one)
First day of the year fishing on a power plant lake in Illinois I broke one of my favorite cranking rod when setting the hook on a fish. It was a huge catfish and the rod broke on the hook set. The crank bait I was using and my line didn't break but the rod did which makes no sense to me. I also was using ten pound line so I never would think the rod would break before the rod. The rod broke about 6-8 inches above the reel seat. It was good while it lasted but this is the second one of the same model (Abu wouldn't replace the first one) that has broken. Never broke a rod before this one. It's a good rod but if u hook a good one (pike,muskie,cat) that might be the last time you use it.
