Abu Garcia's Villain 2.0 Continues to Impress

Introduction: In this age where the anti-hero is gaining more popularity on the silver screen Abu Garcia was perhaps ahead of the curve with the villainous naming of their freshwater bass rod series.

Today we take a look at the gentler side of Villain with our review of their VS610-4 spinning rod.

Great reviews as always, have you ever handled the ML casting model? It is listed as a 6'10" ML xfast, I wondered if it felt light also, the newer Abu's have seemed closer to others ratings.

I've not handled that model, but given the two we reviewed both had good weight and balance, it's safe to assume the model you're interested in will be the same.

Well thanks again for the thorough and informative reviews, I have one spinning and 2 casting, friends that fish much higher priced renowned rods always seem really interested that a $200 Abu rod feels that good. Looking forward to many more reviews in the future.
