Fishing rod innovation introduced at ICAST

Orlando, FL (July 12, 2017) - Ardent Tackle LLC of Macon, Mo USA introduced today at the ICAST convention a true innovation for the fishing rod industry. The new Ardent Pro Rod Overgrip improves angler comfort by eliminating hand stress and fatigue caused by rod split grip design, reel seats and reel foot irritation on spinning reels. The patent pending design utilizes a proprietary silicone composite that achieves a balance of product durability and softness without reducing rod sensitivity. The casting and spinning models of the Pro Rod Overgrip provide a universal fit to any brand of rod, reel seat or freshwater reel design. The items are available individually for installation on previously purchased rods or also available pre-installed on select Ardent rod and combo models. This is a true innovation that provides an angling benefit never before realized with cork, eva, or golf grip materials used on rods.
“The Ardent Pro Rod Overgrip is a major benefit for anglers. Incredible comfort with no reduction in rod sensitivity. These will be on every rod I own” said FLW Tour Pro Clayton Batts.
The Ardent Pro Rod Overgrip MSRP is $19.99 and will be available in stores soon and also available @ ardent reels.com.
