Rated 4 out of 5 by SUPERTROUTMAN88 Lets get down to the point
PROS: Super lightweight rod, beautiful design, moderate price,
CONS:Hand grip is to short and not comfortable, Balance is off. Trust me i tried this pole with a 5.9 oz reel and once you put your hands on the rod,the weight of rod is transfer toward the tip . It makes jigging for trout hard because you are constantly holding the weight of the tip up. That kills all the sensitivity of the pole. Although this pole is good for spinners.
Because of the weight balance i couldn't give this rod a 5 out of 5, but would i ever buy another one? NOPE, heading in different direction.

I love this rod! I have the 6'8" light model and used it for the first time recently to throw some light Rapalas and spinners for trout. I'm glad I went with the light and not the ultralight because that extra backbone is nice for the bronzebacks! The water I fish for trout also has a ton of smallmouth that can get pretty big. Using 4 lb. line, I hooked a 15" smallie with a big fat belly on her with my 3rd cast. The rod performed exceptionally well as I took my time landing her. Very comfortable in my hand and the sensitivity you typically only find in rods costing twice as much! I will definitely purchase another of these rods! I hope Basspro will begin to carry more rods from Fenwick.

I used this rod for the first time on the White River, AR for trout. What a great rod for the price. I bought the 7'2 light action rod. Its a great two piece design that wont come apart when your fishing. It cast and balanced well with 1/4oz lures up to 2/5oz lures. It had a great action that fought 14 inch trout well in fast current and light line. I will buy a couple more for sure!
