Legend Glass vs. Lunkerstik

Postby Big-Bass » Tue Jan 23, 2018 6:13 am

I am just curious as I hear a lot of reviews on the Legend Glass series of rods but next to nothing on the Fenwick Lunkerstik. Does anyone have a comparison...I know the price is considerably different but figured I would ask. The 7'3" Lunkerstik looks nice and it's only $80. It's a glass rod (which I haven't used) so how much different could they be? I think the Legend Glass rods are some of the nicest looking rods aesthetically on the market! Thanks and best wishes on the water!

Nothing on either of those rod models, but I know St. Croix will definitely take care of you. Fenwick, and especially at $80, I'm not sure...
I figure the components like reel seat and guides are WAY superior for the Legend Glass.

The reel seat on the Lunkerstik is the same one used on the Legend Elite series I believe. It's that newer Fuji style.

Pretty sure the old Fenwick glass rods were E-glass while the newer Fenglass rods are S-glass like the St Croix's.
I'd be curious also, as I still use old custom Lamiglas E-glass and Seeker S-glass rods. I'd really like to know their weights.
I've fished with some glass rods that were quite heavy and cumbersome, while others were not.
I'm always looking for another glass rod to try. Been looking real hard at trying to build a rod on one of the Rodgeeks glass blanks.
