Re: Phenix Feather Light

Thanks SS! Rod is due to arrive this Thursday. We have about 6 inches of snow on the ground so it will be a bit before I can use it

Re: Phenix Feather Light

http://i64.tinypic.com/otqmmv.jpg I have that rod with a pixy on it. Its a nice rod for the price, no bells or whistles but id say its similar if not a tag more sensitive than the og tatula line of rods. The light power weighs 3.0oz and it is soft but not too soft. I've casted as light as 1/16oz bu...

Re: Recent builds

Nice work! Thanks for the photos and narrative.

I too have 873 MHX Hi Mod. What started off as a rod for bigger jigs evolved into my frog rod. Paired with an Esxence DC it really shines!

Phenix Feather Light

Anyone using the Feather Light action casting rod? Was interested in hearing some thoughts or feedback. I did some research on the series and it seems many feel they run a half power to a full power under. The 7’1 Light casting rod is rated 1/8-3/8. I was wanting to match it up to a Pixy. Mainly int...

I did this and then woke up a year later with a full beard, a room full of rods and reels, and a lot less money in the bank.

Re: Conquest Skeptic

Nice fleet of rods and reels!

Thanks for the quick thoughts.

Not sure if I would ever get a Conquest rod. Just seems like so many mixed reviews. Many feel they are juice just not worth the added cost.

Re: I believe she is the "one"

Congrats and I like the narrative. =D> Interesting thoughts and that is the great thing about the rod market today. So many options to help fill the gaps.

Re: Lews

Pretty much a mediocre reel. Nothing too innovative or ground breaking. For example nothing catered to tuning like endless spool swaps, BFS components, etc. Shimano gives you things like DC breaking technology, x-ship, silent tune, they perfected VBS breaking, etc. Daiwa with their SV spools, air br...
