Villain

The Next Generation of Lightweight Design and Sensitivity

Microguide models now available in both spinning and casting.

The advancement of cutting edge, ultra-lightweight technology is 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.

A perfect match for the Revo MGX
