(May. 29, 2012 - Columbia, SC)...
The old thought that a rod is a rod doesn’t cut it these days. There are rods that possess just the right action with just the right amount of backbone for each technique out there. The new All Star AST Series Rods deliver the performance these anglers demand while remaining very technique specific. The AST Series offers a new split grip design providing better balance, as well as adding to the sensitivity of the rod.
The AST Series of rods gives anglers a wide array of technique specific rods from a Jig to Drop Shot and everything in between. Built with the highest standards, the AST Series of rods offers the best in quality Fuji components andpro-influenced design.
The one-piece rods feature a multi-modulus 100% graphite blank to create a super sensitive, yet extremely strong blank. The rods are highlighted with lightweight Fuji black framed Hardloy guides for strength and durability and premium split grip cork handles that are comfortable to fish all day from the shore or the bow.
The new AST Series will be available at all Academy stores and online at the academy website.
AST Series rods are designed and crafted with technique specific lengths and actions for various fresh and saltwater applications with its All Star proven performance. The freshwater AST Series consists of 10 baitcasting and four spinning rods, and six new saltwater models.
