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.

Loved it for 6 months...then...
I've been using the 6'6" MH veritas Micro guide series for about six months now. It's always been a wonderful rod with the exception of one thing. When I got the rod I noticed a small crack in the second guide. I didn't think it would be a huge issue and decided to keep the rod. Big mistake. Last week I was horsing in a 5 pounder out of some heavy cover off of a 3/8oz jig. During the fight I heard a tiny cracking sound before the second guide came completely off. Luckily I was able to still get the fish in without the line cutting. I'm really upset that this happened as Unfortunately, since the rod was a christmas gift, I don't have the receipt for it so I'm worried Abu won't make this right for me and replace the rod. I'm a very loyal and outspoken Abu customer and I really love this rod. I also own 2 vendettas, this Veritas, and a Veracity, as well as four Abu reels. I only got big into fishing 2 years ago and have been buying gear like crazy since then. I plan to buy many more combos in the future and I would love to stay loyal to Abu and buy nothing else. However, the way they handle this claim could make the difference between me being impressed with their customer service, or looking elsewhere for a smaller company (i.e. Denali, locally owned small business). If Abu were to send me a new Veritas 2.0 in place of this, I would be fully convinced that their customer service is on par with that of Denali.
