Prestigious brands like Wilson are the leading lights of what is currently an exciting era for Australian fishing. Nowadays, with growing innovation and new engineering techniques, fishing equipment is better than it has ever been. Wilson is playing its part by developing ranges like the hugely popular Live Fibre series.
The core philosophy behind Wilson Live Fibre is to create a diverse selection of fishing rods with two clear outcomes: power and sensitivity. From within the range, the RLF8 is a spinning rod that packs a punch for catching heavier species especially from the boat.
In trying to develop durable rods with power and sensitivity, Wilson sought aerospace-grade carbon fibre from the USA. The next stage was to combine the carbon fibre with semi-unidirectional fibreglass to achieve the signature power and sensitivity of rods from the Live Fibre range.
With a length of seven feet, the line rating of 8-15kg is a welcome surprise for these medium-to-heavy spinning rods. You can use much heavier baits and lures with the RLF8 yet still expect compact dimensions for ease of use.
