the ProAngler Rods improves fishing performance
Steel is the ultimate fishing guide alloy. With stainless steel frames and with
the new stainless steel eyelets, It’s lighter, harder, smoother and more
durable than anything out there.
sensitivity is affected by the weight of the rod tip and number of guides. The
lighter and faster action of the tip, the higher the sensitivity.
Just look at the first 8 inches of a ProAngler rod.
And the more guides, the faster the vibration is transferred through the
blank. The guides are spaced based on a Sine Wave calculation that carries the
vibration to the handle. Other makes of rods actually dampen the vibration.
With the Pro Angler Rods there is more overlap at the connection of the
front piece and the second increasing sensitivity. Also the back rod goes
totally through the handle to the end, increasing the feel in the handle. With
the ProAngler Rod you will actually feel your minnow swimming at the end of the
3. Casting Distance
distance is affected by the number, size, height and position of the guides
along the rod blank. In essence, the straighter and more efficiently the line is
fed through the guides, combined with the least amount of friction, the longer
lower the frame and smaller the diameter of the tip section of guides, the
greater the accuracy of the cast. Similar to an on-target follow-through in the
throwing of an object, this feature ensures a more accurate delivery of the
balance of the rod is affected by the weight of the guides. Lighter guide
weight, especially at the tip, results in greater comfort while fishing, as well
as greater sensitivity in detecting strikes, simply because the rod’s balance
is not tip-heavy.
6. Line Twist
spinning rods, the greater the
number of guides, the less line twist will occur. Since line comes off a
spinning reel in a spiral motion, line twist is inherent in spinning gear.
Guides remove most of that line twist on the retrieve, especially under
fighting tension. Thus, the more guides, the more twist is eliminated.
7. Hooking Power
hooking power of any rod
is directly related to the number of guides. Because more guides keep the line
closer to the body of the blank, less energy is lost on the hookset— that is,
more of the strength and action of the rod is brought into play.
8. Fighting Power
guides, placed at more strategic locations along the rod blank, increase the
fish-fighting power of the rod, whatever the action. Since more guides
distribute more direct energy to the rod through line tension, “weak” spots
are eliminated and more rod power is applied.
ProAngler Rods are the lightest rods with the strongest backbone on the market. The 8 foot rod weighs only 4.2 ounces and the 10ft weighs 5 ounces.
