Tackle type: Rod
Manufacturer: Wright & McGill Co.
Previewer: Leo






 

 

Introduction: Wright & McGill Company released information on the new Skeet Reese Signature Series Tessera rods that will be debuted at ICAST in just a few weeks. The initial lineup will include models specifically deigned by Skeet for a specific technique that will help you catch more fish.

 

8 Rod models to choose from (6 casting, 2 spinning)

These new signature series Wright and McGill rods feature a new Tri-Gressive™ S-Glass blank construction that promises incredible power, a super soft feel that improves the fish catching action of all crank baits. In addition to crank baits, the S-Curve blank construction is designed to exhibit superior strength, improved lifting power, added sensitivity all while reducing the overall weight of the rod. The rods also feature a split handle designed to again keep the weight at a minimum and improve the overall balance of the rod.


Zirconium Oxide insert guides for improved casting distance

The rods also include molded rubber handles that promise incredible feel and improved grip over other grips. Large fighting butt ends deliver performance and durability to the rods and the guides have Zirconium Oxide inserts that offer reduced weight and improved casting distance.


Spinning rods reel seat and grip

The current lineup include 6 casting models and 2 spinning models from 6'8” to 8'. All the rods are 1 piece designed and feature Skeet's signature yellow and black colors.

Conclusion: These rods seem to have all the bells and whistles of most mid to high grade quality rods. The price tag should set them apart at $89.99 retail for all the rods in the lineup. It'll be interesting to see the action of the S-Curve rods. I have heard through the grapevine that they are dvirtually indestructible and still super light and sensitive but only a field test will demonstrate just how well these new rods perform. The only potential drawback I see in these rods is the color, unless your already a fan of Skeet's recognizable motif. Two things you can say about the Bassmaster Classic Champ, one, when he does something he does it first rate and two, if at all possible it'll be yellow and black!
