Kevlar Carbon-Laced Graphite Spinning Rod

Don't be fooled by rod manufacturers who boast of 70 & 80 million modulus cloth in their rods! To be safe, ask them what percentage (%) of 70 or 80 million modulus their rods contain?? If they are honest, most will answer that their rods contain less than 20% of the claimed material.

Gapen's NEW Kevlar carbon laced graphite, along with the NEW hard wrap graphite cloth, has allowed these NEW Wilderness Fishing Rods to come to the angler at a much lower retail price.

Gapen Wilderness Rod is a high-quality graphite casting rod great for spin casting, walleye, bass, crappie, perch, bluegill or trout rod this sensitive and strong kevlar graphite rod is used by Dan Gapen - it's his go-to fishing rod. Select one or two of these great spin casting rods and add the touch and hook-setting speed that a quality graphite rod puts in your hands. For casting spinners, bobbers, floats, jigging, and live bait rigs to feel the lightest tap of any finicky perch, shy-biting walleye or panfish, and to get the jump on lightning-quick trout bites, you will love the feel, speed and touch of this graphite spinning rod. These quality spinning rod blanks will improve your casting, speed up your hook set and give you sensitivity and feel like you have never experienced in a rod. Dan Gapen fishes this spinning rod to feel the lightest bite as kevlar carbon raps transfer touch from your fishing line and hook to your rod top and right to your fingers. Gapen rods are mostly designed one-piece for superior touch, feel and power - at an affordable cost.

High quality construction at a great price, the Gapen Wilderness Rod series puts high performance in your hands for much less money and a replacement warranty to boot. So affordable, you can purchase two or three Gapen spinning rods for the price of one of the more commercial brands. No matter how you might break your rod, you are always covered by our warranty replacement service (see below). Many anglers pick two of the same rods to have extra spinning rod rigs, extra live bait set-ups ready and to have a back-up rod in case of a break. Although we thing you will love this spinning rod so much that you wouldn't think of breaking one, accidents happen. No need to stop fishing if you have a back-up rod, grab two Gapen Wilderness spinning rods and throw, throw, throw to score more fish, feel more bites and or set more hooks on your favorite waters.

Don't let this spinning rod be the one that got away, try one and get to your walleye rod, perch stick or trout rod working your favorite water. Upgrade to a Gapen Wilderness rod and feel the great hook set touch and action only a kevlar carbon-laced wrap can offer. Fast action, powerful response and the rod backbone that Dan Gapen demands in his spin casting rod. Hook a rainbow trout, stop a perch from emptying your jig or rip a crappie off the top of structure with our spinning rod and see for yourself.

Similar in sensitivity and strength to the graphite blanks of the past, these NEW rods carry a friendly and fair lifetime replacement warranty. Your Gapen Wilderness Rod will be replaced for HALF it's retail price due to "ANY" manufacturer defect or customer breakage.

Wilderness Spinning Rod October 28, 2017
Reviewer: Bruce Everetts from Petersburg, IL United States  
This is the 6th rod that I have either purchased for myself or gifts for others and it is the best fishing rod I have ever used.  The sensitivity is unbelievable, you can feel every pebble, rock, and yes every bite!

can't rate yet, haven't had a chance to use them.  They seem to be good quality and nicely balanced.
