  • FLW News: New Rod Roundup

    Rod companies continue to impress each year with a new crop of lighter, faster and more affordable (sweet!) rods. On the subject of price, these days, a tournament pro or an average angler could be fishing with rods that cost less than $100 apiece, but without giving up anything in the realm of quality.Among the trends at this year's show was the adaptation of the Microwave guide system to baitcasting rods - and just about every rod company added them to its lineup. Essentially, the Microwave system starts with a stripper guide that actually has two eyes that funnel the line down quickly off the reel. Gaining control right off the bat smooths the line so that it can flow through the remaining guides with less friction.We rounded up a pretty full list of new rods to give you a quick first look at what was unveiled at ICAST. Stay tuned throughout the summer and fall for more in-depth reviews of some of the most promising models.Click here for complete 2015 ICAST coverage.
