ICAST 2013 Coverage


Stalk Your Prey With The New Denali Kovert Series

 

Date: 7/22/13
Location: Las Vegas, NV
Admission: Buyers & Press Only
Manufacturer: Denali
Reviewer: Wolbugger








Introduction:
The minimalist approach has been a popular one for rod manufacturers the last several years. Denali has become well known for making “those rods with the pretty wooden foregrips”, but now they shift into stealth mode with their new Kovert line of bass rods. With a simple but very cool blacked-out appearance, these rods look like they mean business.

 


Denali introduced the new Kovert Rod Series at ICAST

 

Kovert Rods: The new series consists of 2 spinning and 6 casting models, all priced between $129 and $149. This price range begins about where the upper echelon of the Jadewood series ends, to just below the start of the Rosewood series. Kovert rods are designed to reduce fatigue, but bring you a high level of features and performance to help you catch more fish.

 


The new rods continue the tradition of using hardwood foregrips. this signature feature makes Denali rods instantly recognizable

 

Features include an IM-8 blank, semi-micro ring lock guides, skeleton-style reel seat, EVA split grips, dimpled aluminum winding checks, and a small stabilized hardwood foregrip. Technique-specific actions mean they will be good for everything from finesse applications to flipping heavy cover. Start looking for these rods in the next few weeks!

Conclusion: From at least a cosmetic standpoint, we think Denali did quite well with the design of the new Kovert series. How they fish is another thing altogether, and something we intend to find out in the days to come. If you have your sights set on an affordable but stealthy, low-key rod, then this is one series to keep your eyes on.
