Guru Aven­tus rods

RRP: £375-£450

GURU has, for a long time, been one of the big­gest man­u­fac­tur­ers of ter­mi­nal tackle. So we were in­cred­i­bly ex­cited when the com­pany an­nounced in March that it was ven­tur­ing into the rod mar­ket. The rods were un­veiled for the first time at The Big One Show in Farn­bor­ough and for those ea­gerly wait­ing to get their hands on them, the wait is al­most over. They should be hit­ting the shops dur­ing Au­gust. The Aven­tus range made its of­fi­cial UK de­but at an in­vi­ta­tion-only dealer event at Par­tridge Lakes in Cheshire, and IYCF was on hand to get a closer look. There are six rods in the range – 11ft and 12ft Float, 10ft and 11ft Feeder and 12ft and 13ft Dis­tance Feeder. Priced be­tween £375 and £450, these are top-end rods, but those will­ing to splash the cash won’t be dis­ap­pointed. The rods ooze qual­ity and boast sev­eral in­no­va­tive fea­tures. For ex­am­ple, each rod has a slightly longer han­dle than usual to aid cast­ing, while finger grips are an ex­cel­lent ad­di­tion. The reel seats on the Float rods are ex­tremely slim for ex­tra com­fort when us­ing labour in­ten­sive tac­tics such as the pel­let wag­gler, and the guides on all rods are built to pre­vent line wrap­ping around them.
