Microwave Advances Spinning Rod Performance
CastAway Rod Manufacturing introduced the first production micro guide casting rod at the 2009 ICAST show. This year, while other rod manufacturers are playing catch up and follow-the-leader in producing their own micro guide rods, CastAway is well into the next generation with its performance shattering MICROWAVE' series of spinning rods.
Working closely with tackle inventor, visionary and industry legend Doug Hannon, CastAway has developed rods that will cast farther, faster and more accurately than any traditional spinning rods, thanks to the patent-pending MICROWAVE' guide system.
Invented by Doug Hannon in conjunction with Wave Spin, and exclusively licensed to CASTAWAY the MICROWAVE' guide eliminates the distance robbing slap of the line when it meets the first guide. Typical line-to-guide contact also negatively affects casting accuracy, lure speed and delivery. When fishing a CastAway rod fitted with MICROWAVE' guides, the line is pulled through, rather than pushed into, the first guide, whether it is braid, mono, or flouro. The result is a faster, farther and more accurate cast that cannot be matched by any other spinning rod. The applications of the MICROWAVE' are endless. From casting a plug from the surf, to skipping a finesse worm under a dock, to tossing a tiny spinner across a trout stream or throwing a wiggle jig across a windy bonefish flat, a CastAway rod with a MICROWAVE' guide system will do it effortlessly and more accurately. What's more, because micro guides are so light (up to 85% lighter than ordinary guides), you'll cast all day with no fatigue.
The CastAway MICROWAVE' rods are available in a variety of lengths and actions to meet every inshore, back bay and freshwater spinning situation. The new high performance Castaway spinning rods are scheduled to be on retail racks before the first of the year. You can see them at Booth #1928 at ICAST, or we can se
