White Savage Gear Salt Spinning Rods

Posted by Editor On November - 5 - 2011

Savage Gear SaltWe always enjoy discovering what Savage Gear have been up to and there were quite a few 'finds' at this year's T&G Show. One of the most visually impressive was the new range of Savage Gear Salt Spinning Rods.

These lure rods look fantastic in pearlescent white and while they were instantly reminiscent of a whole batch of modern spinning rods coming out of France and Japan, when I looked at the price tag I was pleased (read shocked) to see the recommended retail price was between £69.99 & £79.99. I know we won't do the look of these rods justice here online, but at that price point they will fly in the shops I'm sure. Set to be hugely popular on looks alone.

There are 5 rods in the range to cover shore and boat fishing with lures. One neat feature was the addition of separate ratings for vertical jigging on three of the rods. It shows that Savage Gear have really thought each rods use.

The Savage Gear Salt spinning rods range from 7ft 2 inch to 9ft 2 inch which will cover the most popular styles of lure fishing.

  • Savage Gear Salt 7ft 2 inch | 8-30g | 45g vertical jigging
  • Savage Gear Salt 7ft 4 inch | 10-45g | 75g vertical jigging
  • Savage Gear Salt 7ft 4 inch | 15-65g | 150g vertical jigging
  • Savage Gear Salt 8ft 6 inch | 25-80g
  • Savage Gear Salt 9ft 2 inch | 15-42g

All 2-piece.

My personal favourite rod in the range was the 15-65g. This would be a lovely bass rod in the boat for plugs, soft plastics and jigs. Would be nice to see how these perform out on the water.

So at the price point discussed you may be thinking these rods would have inferior fittings - wrong! All Salt rods feature quality ALPS reel seats and guides. While some of you may not have heard of ALPS before, don't fear, there 'are' great alternatives to Fuji - we're just a bit brain washed here in the UK. I noted that the rings toward the tip were particularly well sized as well. Following the current trend for low-profile guides these rods look smart!

Very much looking forward to getting my hands on the Savage Gear Salt Spinning Rods again soon.
