Abu Garcia Verdict

As a fellow YakAngler I've been in many discussions about handle length when it comes to kayak fishing.  I've heard folks say that they like longer handles and myself, I tend to like a shorter handle when fishing from my kayak.  Well, no matter which side of the fence that you sit on this topic, Abu Garcia has created the rod for us all.  The Abu Garcia Verdict has a adjusting handle that you can shorten or lengthen depending on the type of fishing that you're doing.

 

The Extending Handle System™ allows you to set your handle to a desired length when using the newest lightweight reel designs. This allows you to create a perfect balance of handle length and feel while fishing with heavy or lightweight lures.

One piece double anodized aluminum screw down creates a secure connection
High density EVA grips are more durable and comfortable
Titanium alloy guides with SiC inserts create a lightweight, balanced blenk design
Texas-rigged hook keeper for all bait applications
