Pflueger Trion Discontinued?

Post by Ashigaru » Thu Mar 23, 2023 5:45 pm

Hi all, wondering if anyone can put my mind at ease regarding whether Pflueger Trion rods are still sold in Aus? I have a 2-4kg Trion I bought 13 years ago. I still use it regularly, a fantastic rod that has caught some absolute beasts in a range of saltwater and freshwater environments. Having returned to trout fishing in recent months, I am keen to grab a 1-3kg rod (lost my old Shimano to a carp when fishing corn unweighted :oo: ). Have searched high and low for the Trion, as I've read on this site that many people loved their 1-3kg variety. Can't find them for sale anywhere.... Does anybody know whether they sell them anymore? My experience with my other Trion has made me loyal to the brand. Keen to find out so I can stop looking and pick another rod!

p.s. if anybody has a 1-3kg Trion gathering dust in the shed, I'd be happy to buy it!
Thanks in advance for any responses :)

I remember the Trion, the 2-4kg version too - burgundy coloured blank...
Lost it at patto when I tipped, it was the priciest rod I had at the time :(

Thanks all for your replies, much appreciated. I'll consider the Illusion, but doesn't seem like it's of the same grade as the Trion was :( I'll be sure to take extra good care of the one I have now that I know it can't be replaced. Or maybe it's time to find another rod to fall in love with...
