If you don't know the Fate Black series by now, it's time to get acquainted. This widely recognized series is back to make another bold statement. The continuing legacy of sensitivity and reactive spline on the PVG30T blank gives this rod an unmatched feeling. Through the Evolve Soft Touch ported reel seat and custom-wrapped stainless steel Alconite guides, this rod relays the most subtle of fish intentions by harnessing the energy and transferring it straight to your palm. The lighter setup of the new edition improves the overall feel while maintaining the custom-tuned tapers the series is known for.
