Abu Garcia® brings fishing to waters large and small, near and far with the new IKE Signature Series Travel Rods. Mike Iaconelli, professional bass angler and Abu Garcia pro staffer, is always on the go and looking for new waters to fish, even in the midst of urban areas – this fish anywhere mentality led to the design of the new IKE Travel Rods.

Crafted with an easy-to-assemble four piece design, including two separate tips with different actions, the IKE Series Travel Rods live up to Abu Garcia’s expected high level of quality while also granting freedom like never before. Available in both spinning and casting models, the Abu Garcia IKE Series Travel Rods feature actions designed by Iaconelli.

The rods are forged with 36 ton graphite, for a lightweight, balanced design and feature stainless steel guides with Zirconium inserts and a Fuji® reel seat – craftsmanship that promises increased sensitivity and comfort at no loss of durability. The new travel rods come with an IKE-approved hard rod case, designed to hold multiple IKE Series Travel Rods.

“It’s not always easy to find ideal fishing conditions amid a busy life,” said Abu Garcia Global Brand Director, Andrew Wheeler. “That’s why we’ve created the new Abu Garcia Ike Signature Series Travel Rods – to let anglers fish wherever they are, at their own convenience. Travel across the globe to find an exotic species, or switch techniques and street fish in the city on your lunch break—either way, IKE Travel Rods make it possible.”

The new Abu Garcia IKE Signature Series Travel Rods are priced at $149.95 and are now available at retailers nationwide. The rods also have a limited three-year warranty.
