EFTTEX Awards 2012 - Best New Rod

Artico Aquila Marina

These extreme rods use premium quality Ferrari-Artico graphite blanks engineered for heavy-duty performance while staying lightweight for comfortable all-day fishing.

An innovative series for ‘popping’, the technical advancement of this rod is in the handle, constructed against taper with different materials, which allows it to have continuity of action for distance casts and more control boat-side during fights with large fish.

These properties can reduce the physical effort of the fisherman by 30%.

The second technical innovation is in the drum, constructed with a system of composite materials.

The stem is devoid of a spine with the following advantages:

  • Stem of the rod has an equal consistent action
  • In the casting action, the lure travels in the desired direction. During the fight with big fish, the rod always maintains precise bending, reducing the risk of breakage and damage.
