The Abu Garcia Villain Micro Guide Casting Rods still deliver the same diabolical level of performance as the originals - now with added advantage of micro guide technology. Delivering a significant weight reduction over conventional guides, as well as, enhanced casting performance, the micro guides are composed of titanium alloy with titanium inserts for maximum durability. Equipped with ultra sensitive 40-ton graphite blanks - the highest grade of graphite in an Abu Garcia rod - Abu Garcia’s LRC Low Resin Content graphite technology also allows less resin to be used in the construction of the rod blanks. This in turn creates rods that are significantly lighter in hand and more sensitive than traditional graphite rods - all without sacrificing strength. Exclusive C6 Total Exposure reel seats put you in complete contact with the rod blank for maximum sensitivity transfer, and high density EVA split grips with no fore grip provide all day comfort. A bass’ worst nightmare, the Abu Garcia Villain Micro Guide Casting Rods are here.

Customer Reviews

Comments:  The rod is very light and very strong...  The only thing that I didn't like about it is that the finger grip...  The finger grip has a small gap in it which if you fish for hours it tends to hurt your finger to where you need to use a different rod...

Comments: I purchased the 7'6 mh. Its a nice rod but for the money I would just go with the vertas

Comments:  I've been using the Villain's for a while now and I love them! I'm glad Abu Garcia gave anglers what they wanted and put out a microguide version. I really like both the standard and microguide versions. Both of the 7'1" rods are amazing.
