Good solid rod that is comfortable to fish with for long days of fishing. High quality grip and guides.

Bottom Line

The Fate V3 is a modernized baitcasting rod with a attractive design as well as features that are optimized for sensitivity. The blank on the Fate V3 is lighter, and is more sensitive than previous releases. The action on the blank is ideal for casting lures of all sorts, and 11 different models ensures there is a model for any technique.

The unique Airfoil Carbon grips have quickly become popular amongst 13 Fishing anglers, as they provide impressive grip in all conditions while playing a considerable role in sensitivity.

The Fate V3 is a newer release from 13 Fishing and from what we can see so far, it looks like a great option if you're lurking around this price point.
