Abu Garcia Impact 2 Fishing Rod
By: The Angler
It was either last year (2020) or the year before that my friends and I decided to do something out of the ordinary. We decided to go on a fishing road trip. We had no destination in mind. We had no solid plans. What we would do is to stop at fishable bodies of water and cast our lines in. That trip ended up being a foodie trip more than a fishing trip.
[ We ventured into places where gangs of bandits high on drugs would most likely hangout… ]
That said, we did do some fishing and we did catch some fish. It was fun and adventurous. We went to places that we’ve not gone to before. We even went to places where we felt that our machetes should not be in the trunk together with our tents but with us in the cabin. We ventured into places where gangs of bandits high on drugs would most likely hangout at. Lucky we did not chance upon any bandits except for one very angry guy in his pickup truck.
Awesome rod grips made for wild adventures.
On trips such as this the Abu Garcia Impact 2 fishing rod would be a good companion. Why would I think so? Well, the Abu Garcia Impact 2 fishing rod is a nice looking, unassuming fishing rod. It is a well-balanced workhorse that is fun to use. It has all the bling you need and want, but in a package that will not attract unwanted attention. But if your fishing buddies start to brag about their toys; you can brag too, and may even leave some of them behind.
High quality components.
All Round Workhorse
The Abu Garcia Impact 2 fishing rod comes in a blank that is great for most types of fishing and suits most Malaysian anglers. Its 24 Ton graphite blank is awesome for fishing hard fighting fishes such as the giant snakeheads (toman), the sebaraus, groupers, snappers, etc. as well as the more mundane fishes like tilapias, patin (catfish), etc. Definitely an all-round workhorse.
What I like about the Abu Garcia Impact 2 fishing rod is that it is made for the rougher more adventurous outdoors where muddy treks, rain, etc. are part of the fun. The Impact 2 fishing rods come with rubber cork handle with a rubber butt end cap both of which are awesome when it comes to such adventures. They can handle dirt the way the old Toyota Land Cruiser could handle most terrain. They do not soak up dirt and they are easy to clean.
Awesome 24 Ton Graphite; versatile blank for handling tough fighting fishes.
When it comes down to the fishing bit; the Abu Garcia Impact 2 fishing rod is all in for the fight. Strong and tough blank aside, the Impact 2 comes with heat dispersing and tough Fuji guides that can handle the harsh realities of using superlines. It also comes with Fuji reel seats that hold on tight to fishing reels eliminating slippage of reels when fishing. A reel seat that goes loose is certainly no fun to fish with.

I can certainly see myself with the Abu Garcia Impact 2 fishing rod going on camping trips. It is a lightweight, well balanced, tough fishing rod that is made for wild adventures. I will certainly not mind standing it on muddy grounds because I know that it will not soak up the dirt and I can easily just give it a good washing with the water from the river that I am camping beside.
