Weight And Configuration
Made of carbon graphite the Abu Garcia Salty Nova Colors Summer Blue jigging rod is a lightweight rod that is very well balanced with an expensive feel. It comes with high quality EVA handles with the aft or back EVA section designed in a way as to provide a more confident hold between the arms and the body of the angler.
Rear EVA with “cut off” section to provide better grip between arm and body.
The Abu Garcia Salty Nova Colors Summer Blue jigging rod is a one piece rod. This gives it a consistent power curve of the backbone as well as consistent curve of the rod blank. The only setback of one piece rods is that they are not as convenient to transport as compared to rods that can be broken down to 2 or more pieces. Well, it certainly is worth the tiny sacrifice for consistent power. After all, being a one piece rod is not an issue for those with cars, SUV, and MPVs.

The Abu Garcia Salty Nova Colors Summer Blue jigging rod come with Fuji guides that are tough and provides for better durability especially when it comes to handling super-lines that can create kinks in low quality guide rings. Fuji guides are also better at dispersing heat that is created by the friction as the line rubs against the rings of the guides especially during battles. The other components of the Abu Garcia Salty Nova Colors Summer Blue jigging rod are standard reel seats, and high quality EVA handles or grips.
Fuji O-Ring guides provides for better durability, lightness, and dissipation of heat; thus lesser damage to lines too.
The Abu Garcia Salty Nova Colors Summer Blue jigging rod is one of the latest jigging rods to be launched by Abu Garcia. They are lightweight, well balanced, and are fun rods. We will be field testing them soon. Stay tuned to see how they perform in the real world.
