  • 30-ton graphite construction with Nano Technology for decreased weight and increased compression strength
  • 1-piece double-anodized aluminum screw down holds your reel securely
  • High-density EVA handles are more durable and comfortable
  • Extreme Exposure reel seats provide increased blank contact and sensitivity
  • Titanium alloy guides with SiC inserts create a lightweight, balanced blank design
  • Texas-rigged hook keeper for all bait applications  
Lightweight is good, but lightweight with superior balance and strength is even better. Abu Garcia Veritas Casting Rods feature 30-ton graphite Nano Technology construction, which works on the atomic level to deliver incredible compression strength with minimal weight. Now your rod can stand up to nicks and dings that make other rods snap under pressure.

Other Veritas Casting Rod features include Titanium alloy guides with premium SiC inserts and high density EVA handles. Extreme Exposure reel seats on Abu Garcia Vertitas Casting Rods increase their sensitivity for an unmatched feel.
Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 263 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not what I thought When I got the rod home and strung some line thru it, and flexed it, I found out it was a lot stiffer than I thought it would be. Also, being as long and stiff as it was, I thought the length of the rear grip was out of proportion. It needed to be at least 13" to have a decent leverage when setting the hook. I didn't care for it and I returned it. March 17, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pleased with the purchase Still getting used to my new rod and reel set up but I'm really enjoying it. My only disappointment in myself is that I purchased the rod on a Sunday and that following Wednesday it was on sale for $20 less. The product is solid and I am happy with the purchase. March 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT ROD I own the abu garcia veritas in a 7' medium heavy and i use it for bass fishing this rod is absoultly amazing it is so sensitave its not even funny i would buy 100 more if i could afford them nut this rod is highly recomended March 2, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by disapointed Purchased on sale @ BSP.$60. Not used regularly, usually worm jigging. One month past warranty half of rod broke off. Great distance though....Thank god I use braid, didn't loose lure. Save money and get a BPS $25-30 rod or save up for ST. Croix. I know I am. December 3, 2013

Spinnerbaits. Might not cast as far as a 7' but for accuracy,a 6'6" fast taper(action) is perfect for casting in tight spots where a 6 and/or 7 footer wont.

A: 
I have the 7 footer winch rod paired up with the exact Abu Garcia Winch reel(5.4:1 ratio) and it is a dream. Casts at least 40 yards with ease, so an added 6" to the rod will LAUNCH a 6XD,DD22,DT16 no problem. I did not get the 7'6" b/c I am a shorter guy, but man I absolutely love my Veritas for deep cranking.

A: 
Absolutely! In fact, this is the rod I use (matched with a winch reel) for fishing series 5, 5XD, 6 & 6XD. Very limber, but with the extra backbone that a MH gives you. Enough flex to really get good casts, long enough to put up a good fight in deep water and with a lot of line out, forgiving enough to keep the fish hooked, and light enough to fish all day without fatigue.

Grab a mojo bass st. croix crankbait rod. This is a graphite rod, not a glass rod. Glass rods work much better for crankbaits.

A: 
I fish with the Veritas Spinning 7' M for my finesse applications. It's long enough to make long casts, yet I can still get a good "skip" up under something like a dock when I'm wacky-rigging. The M action has a nice soft tip with enough backbone to get a good hook set and leverage during the fight. Mine are matched up with STX Spinning Reels #20 size and either 8lb. fluorocarbon or 20lb. Invisibraid. Never had any worries about the rod failing, and it's the most sensitive rod I've owned.

I would say the best one for wacky rigging would be the 6'6" Medium with extra fast tip or the 7' medium with fast tip.

A: 
It would not be too long. It is personal preference really. For flipping you will get more distance with a longer rod. I do not like these rods as a jig rod though because I feel that the sensitivity is not too good. I would switch brands.

Actually it's the perfect size for tossing frogs or for flipping heavy cover. Make sure you get a reel like a Browning Midas with a strong drag and a flipping feature. Team them with Power Pro 65lb line and you're set.

Depends on what you are wanting to throw. If it is spinners or buzzbaits or topwater then go for it. If you are going to be jigging or anything then no. The sensitivity is not too good.

A: 
I have one of each in 6'9" MH and like them both. The carbon lite seems to handle a little lighter but they both have a good backbone. I typically use the Veritas for jigs 3/8 to 1/2 oz and the carbon lite for texas rigs. If I were buying another one would probably go with the carbon lite.

A: 
I have not yet used my veritas with jigs or worms. However as far as the rod itself I feel they are as good as advertised. I took mine on a trip to Canada and caught over 50 fish with it. The biggest topping 12lbs. The rod handled them all with ease. The rod is extremely light with great sensitivity and just enough backbone. I have since purchased 2 more.

I have never owned a W&M (Skeet Reese) but I do have a Veritas. I would not recommend the Veritas, seeing as how it is more expensive than W&M. Unless you hear something negative about them, go with Skeet.

I have a 7' medium micro for my top water rod. It has a fast tip and great for working the action on top water baits. For cranking I would suggest going with the Winch series. The winch series have slow tips.

I would go with regular if you are the least bit rough on rods. I haven't had great luck with micro guides thus far but haven't had any issues with the regular guides.

If your using Mono I'd stay away from the Micro Guides. The MONO can have a memory to it, which can cause problems passing through the guides.
