Daiwa has brought out their newest series of inshore rods to ICAST 2023 with the Sol AGS line of inshore rods. Their goal for this six-rod lineup is to make a new inshore rod line that has flagship quality and features, but not so much flagship pricing. Using everything they have learned over the past five years in the inshore saltwater market, the new Sol AGS provides their best in sensitivity and blank durability combined with flagship series components. Meant to target everything from redfish, speckled trout, snook, permit, and even tarpon, these one-piece fast action rods will be offered in both 7′(medium-light and medium-heavy powers) and 7’6″(medium-light, medium-heavy, and heavy powers) lengths.
“Our main goal with the SOL AGS rods is to bring all the advancements Daiwa has made in rod development over the five years to the inshore saltwater market,” said Daiwa’s Marc Mills. “Anglers will quickly notice the advantages of our own AGS guides and micro pitch blank construction for inshore action that provides both sensitivity and the needed durability.”
Daiwa used their HVF NANOPLUS carbon technology when making the rod blanks to reinforce them at a micro level. This makes for a smaller, lighter, and more powerful of rod blank, full of fish-stopping power. The carbon fiber uses Daiwa’s X and X-45 Bias braiding construction processes for added strength, rod twisting prevention, and rod ovalization prevention. The Sol AGS rods also feature the exclusive carbon-framed Air Guide System (AGS) guides, some of the lightest and most sensitive rod guides on the market. The rigidity they provide adds crazy sensitivity to the rod making for a great fishing experience. These rods are available at Daiwa dealers now and have an MSRP of $349.99. They also come with a limited lifetime warranty through Daiwa.
