The 13 Fishing Fate Black rods were some of the more hotly anticipated new rods announced last year. I have been fishing them since late last summer, and just realized I hadn’t wrote a review of them. Since the first picture I posted with them last fall, people have been asking me about the “green rods.” With so much curiosity and people still asking about them, I wanted to share some thoughts on this $99 workhorse rod from 13 Fishing.
They come in 9 Baitcaster powers and actions and 7 spinning power and action combinations. They feature 30-ton Japanese HTC3 blanks, Evolve seamless reel seats, tangle-free guides, and Portugese cork handles. Their sizes range from 6-foot, 7-inch medium power rods to 7-foot, 11-inch heavy power rods.
