For more than sixty years, Wilson Fishing has been using its knowledge of Australian angling conditions to develop some of the best products on the market. One of the manufacturer’s particular successes is the Wilson Live Fibre range, within which there are fishing rods to serve all manner of conditions.
In the case of more advanced anglers, the Wilson RLF16 is an affordable option for those seeking an overhead fishing rod. Along with the exceptional value, the RLF16 is a highly advanced fishing rod. And it all starts off with the blending of aerospace-grade carbon fibre and semi-unidirectional fibreglass to form the blank.
While the RLF16 offers imposing strength, this is not at the expense of sensitivity. The one-piece rod measures in at six feet and six inches, yet carries a line rating of 10-15kg within its compact frame. The rod is also highly durable with a fast-tapered construction.
There are more guides fitted on the overhead fishing rods within the Wilson Live Fibre range, as opposed to with the spinning rods. In the design, Wilson has taken care to ensure that the blank bends where it is supposed to and that the line is free to function, so as to accommodate the overhead position of the reel.
