Phenix Recon Rod Weights?

Postby Hapi Hooker » Mon Nov 13, 2017 4:28 pm

Anyone have any rod weights for the Phenix Recon line? I’m thinking about giving one a shot and was wondering how light they are and if they are considered a sensitive rod for the money. Any better options in that price point? Looking for something light and sensitive in the $200 range.

I have a custom 766 which is the 7'6 Heavy Fast action rod that has a full eva foam grip, and it weighs 5.8 ounces. I use it for frogging, jigs, heavier Texas rigs, and some pitching/flipping around light to medium cover.

If you're looking for a lighter rod, I'd suggest the Phenix M1, but they tend to be a little softer than their rating. What do you plan on using the rod for?
