Artico Silente 6016 14ft 9″ 4.5m
The state of the art 6016 is the highest spec model in the Silente series and features Artico’s V.AR.AM unidirectional composite carbon to create a continental 4.5m rod that is incredibly light at just 485g. With an exceptionally thin diameter blank the 6016 completely redefines the boundaries of beach casting rod design. Two models are available casting up to 150g or 200g with either Fuji BNOG or Fuji Alconite K Guides.
This rod is manufactured by Artico in their factory in Pordenone, Italy using unidirectional composite carbon, differentiated in form and orientation and V.AR.AM to creates a blank that is incredibly light, thin and well balanced but with a large reserve of power with quick action.
This is an ideal distance Bass rod. You can fish at range with soft baits as well as dropping it short. Very light in the hand it is also well suited for wading surf anglers and those looking to bridge the gap between traditional UK style beachcasters and continental rods.
Bite registration is also no problem. The Silente series is fitted with a Nylon tip which produces enough stiffness to sit in the tide but still picks up the smallest knocks. Available in Fuji BNOG or Fuji Alconite K guides with casting weights of 150g and 200g
