Press Release

SPIRIT LAKE, IOWA – These are the bullies of fishing rods, the Workhorse and Brute series from Abu Garcia. No matter how mean or how big the fish is, the Workhorse and the Brute are built to win the battle. Workhorse rods are built from high-performance graphite-composite blanks with a tip made from uni-directional solid E-glass for the strength and durability to win the battle.

The butt is wrapped with woven graphite for added power. Chromium SS304 guides add to the rod’s overall toughness while reducing the rod’s weight. Cork grips are comfortable and secure.

E-glass Brute rods are also strong and durable. The blank through the handle design adds to the Brute’s power. EVA grips are secure and comfortable even when wet. Line flows smoothly through aluminum oxide guides.

There are fifteen spinning, casting, dipsy diver and downrigger Workhorse rods from a short 5’ footer to the 10’ dipsy diver. The six spinning models include ultra-light to medium action rods from 5’ to 7’ long, in one or two-piece setups. Five one-piece casting rods are offered for medium and medium-heavy action in lengths from 6’ to 7’.

Two-piece Dipsy Diver rods in 8’ and a 10’ and 7’6” and 8’6” downrigger rods are available.

In addition, there are 12 new saltwater Workhorse spinning models. Three inshore models include a 7’ medium action rod, a 7’ medium heavy action and a 7’6” medium action. Spinning boat models include 6’6” and 7’ medium heavy action rods and a 7’ heavy action rod. Medium heavy action surf spinning models are available in 8’, 9’ and 10’ lengths. Conventional boat rods include medium heavy action rods in 6’6” and 7’ lengths and a 7’ heavy action rod.

Eight Brute saltwater spinning, casting and trolling rods are available. Medium-heavy action spinning rods are offered in 7’, 8’, 9’ and 10’. Baitcast Brute rods measure 6’6” and 7’ and also have a medium-heavy action. The heavy-action trolling rods are 5’6” or 6’6” long. All Brute spinning rods are two-piece while casting and trolling models are one-piece.
