5. FITZGERALD ALL-PUR­POSE

Outdoor Life - - GEAR -

• Price: $190

Buy­ing a sep­a­rate rod for every tech­nique gets ex­pen­sive fast. So, man­u­fac­tur­ers are now de­sign­ing versatile rods that can cover a wide range of ap­pli­ca­tions. The Fitzgerald All-pur­pose achieves that goal; it’s a truly versatile stick that can be fished in both fresh and salt wa­ter. The high-mod­u­lus blank pro­duces a solid blend of power and sen­si­tiv­ity. The panel agreed that the rod was well-con­structed and had a ton of back­bone to han­dle big fish in our tor­ture test, and it can take the pun­ish­ment of salt wa­ter with Amer­i­can Tackle guides in stain­less-steel frames.
