Abu Garcia Zenon LTX BFS Reel and BFS Spinning and Casting Rods


Abu Garcia’s improvement to the Bait Finesse Systems (BFS) craze

Avid anglers are always eager to hop on new trends to improve their skill set. Recently, anglers have jumped on the bandwagon of a new trend in fishing tackle called Bait Finesse Systems (BFS). For Abu Garcia, it is imperative to have a rod and reel solution for every angler looking to Fish to Win. To improve the experience and performance of utilizing BFS style baits, Abu Garcia introduces the Zenon BFS casting reel to pair with all new Zenon BFS spinning and casting rods.

Bait finesse is a specialized technique that started in the Japanese market and is quickly making its way to the shores of North America as new finesse techniques become more popular. BFS reels in particular allow for a low-profile set up that is able to throw very lightweight baits. This is specifically effective for highly pressured fish or when anglers need to throw baits that are ⅛-ounce or lighter and want to do so on casting gear. The new Zenon BFS reels have been purposefully designed to give anglers the right tool for the job, regardless of any lightweight technique. 

Adding three models of BFS rods to the Abu Garcia Zenon rod series, these rods feature premium carbon blanks with Abu Garcia’s exclusive Powerlux 100 resin system. This enables the rods to deliver powerful ultra-light sensitive blanks with higher break strengths and improved impact and fracture resistance without increasing the overall weight or diameter of the rod. The BFS models feature the perfect power and action to throw super lightweight baits, expanding an angler's set of tools for lighter techniques. In addition, the Abu Garcia custom designed reel seat delivers hypersensitivity around the exposed blank sections and improves comfort for fishing all day long.
