source:Pure Fishing Japan
World Monster is a series of rods released by fishing equipment manufacturer Abu Garcia.As the name suggests, they are monster fish rods developed for catching large fish from all over the world. First released in 2016, it became a hot topic among anglers targeting large fish, and due to its popularity, four new models were added in April 2017.
Characteristics of World Monsters
Let's check out the characteristics of World Monsters.
Pack rods are also available
In addition to the regular 1-piece World Monster, there are also 1-piece and 4-piece pack rods with a removable grip. Pack rods don't add bulk to your luggage, even when you're traveling abroad or traveling by plane. When it comes to fishing expeditions, the amount of luggage tends to increase, so we recommend the compact World Monster.
Affordable price among monster fish rods
Since rods for monster fish are intended for big fish, they tend to be expensive because they require some development and manufacturing costs, such as adding strength to the blanks. However, the World Monster is quite reasonably priced among monster fish rods. While the market price is around 40,000 to 50,000 yen, the World Monster is sold for around 20,000 yen, making it a recommended price for beginners to monster fishing.
