Hardcore anglers want and need rods that will stand up and perform during the heat of tournament action. There is no room for the slightest miscue or tackle failure. The new ASNano Family of rods were created by All Star to be among the strongest, technique specific rods on the market.

Nano Resin technology increases break strength and can be used in two different ways; lessening material for a lighter rod while maintaining break strength, or keeping the same amount of material and significantly increasing break strength. All Star chose option two which gives action for action and power for power, one of the strongest, most durable graphite rods on the market.

In addition, the Nano rods feature the latest in Fuji design. The Fuji alconite guides provide added strength and weight reduction. The exposed Fuji ACS and VSS reels seats contribute dependability, weight reduction and allow direct contact with the blank. Helping you feel the most subtle bites. The cork handle provides a more comfortable and slip resistant grip, even when wet.

The new Nano Series are available at all Academy stores and online at the academy website.

Nano Series rods are designed and crafted with proven technique specific lengths and actions for various fresh applications that All Star is known for. The Nano Series consists of 14 freshwater baitcasting and four freshwater spinning rods. MSRP is $89.99.
