LAKE TROUT RODS Santarelli Lakes near Moresco (FM), November 20, 2016 With two masterful matches on difficult trout, the Leonessa Trabucco team has put everybody down in the 2016 Lake Trout Italian Team Championship. A great satisfaction for Mirko Salvatti, founder, president and athlete of the team based in Quinzano d’Oglio, which had already on board a pairs Italian title, won in 2008 with his nephew Andrea Comito, and an outstanding individual gold of the same Andrea in 2014. Great humility, huge passion and a mountain of commitment, application, personal technical beliefs that have proved once again to be right, in a very tough environment that does not forgive anything, where a single trout can turn on or off any hopes, where a sight mistake costs a lot, exactly as in any other elite sport.

LAKE TROUT SS
A completely new project redesigns the image of Astore range, but also the one of Trabucco brand among the elite of the lake trout community. In combination with one of the fantastic Trabucco reels with full aluminum structure, these rods express their personality and ensure very qualified performance. With a masterful use of CX-2 Nano-Tek High Modulus carbon, whose layers are made integral by special nano-technological resins, it has been possible to create very precise actions, able to manage targeted weight ranges and ensure the display of impeccable actions. The blanks have a superslim profile, yet surprising for reactivity to pressure and for structural strength. Sensitive solid carbon tips are inserted from the top and glued in the lighter four rods, while come out in telescopic mode in the four most powerful ones. The “Y” frame of the SiC guides is just perfect for the job, while the precision of sliding guides, wrapped onto carbon pipes and interlocking on each other, is quite superb.

of the newest Astore Super Slim, and mounted the fantastic Invictus and Virtus reels, infallible machines to prove that it is not the habit which counts, but the monk who hiddens inside. Just days before, the mates of the Leonessa had taken part in a Trabucco video, using for the first time just the Astore Super Slim rods that we present in these pages. It took a few hours to trigger the right feeling, and this is the wish that we want to extend to all match anglers who, as Mirko and his friends, believe in what they do and trust in our brand.
