When I saw these rods at the ICAST show in Vegas, they stood out immediately because of their unique look. So, upon arriving home I emailed the good folks at Wright & McGill and asked if I could try one out. They courteously obliged my request and sent one over. The first time we put it to use our Editor-in-Chief, Matt Draper and this issue’s cover girl, Lauren, both put the rod through its paces and loved it.
This “Flats Blue” rod is part of the Blair Wiggins signature series and comes in lengths from 6’ 9” to 8’ and in spinning or casting configurations. “I really didn’t think we could make ‘em better, but we did. You’ll love the totally new look, feel, power and best of all, a great new price—around $80!”- Capt. Blair Wiggins
The second part of this combo was as impressive as the first. The Sábalos reels offer everything a saltwater angler could ask for. All models come equipped with the 9+1 ball bearing system with infinite anti-reverse, an amazingly smooth front drag and a lightweight aluminum body and spool. The reel can be purchased in 4 different sizes: 2500, 3000, 3500 and 4000, and for only $99.99 it can’t be beat!
This Wright & McGill combo is a very attractive and versatile outfit, which manages to balance the toughness and sensitivity serious anglers appreciate. But best of all, for under $200 it’s a steal! Go to the Wright & McGill website for more info on both of these great products. http://www.wright-mcgill.com/
the combo is worth the money. Rod has excellent feel and light. Have two sabalos reels and they have been put to the test many times.
