Phenix Feather Rod Initial Impressions and Review

My initial impressions on the Phenix Feather 7′ light spinning rod: Interesting reel seat, VERY interesting guide placement, and it is indeed feather light.

Very rare to see a production rod under 3 oz. Will update at the end of the season…if the rod survives my giant porgies lol.

Thanks for the review I was really interested in the rod but i think I’ll go another route.

Thanks for the heads up on these rods they have a really nice selection of rods.

Pauls Bass Fishing says:

I had the same issue with the line with a similar set up it was my Fuji hook keeper the line was bouncing off of it cause that tangled issue. I just set the hook keep twards me.

How do you think this rod would pair with a stradic ci4+ fb 1000? Im thinking of 6 lb test j braid for multi species pond fishing.

Luis Seminario says:

I have the 7’1 medium and really like it haven’t had line wrapping but then again I’m using 10lb mono with a Shimano ultegra 2500. I really wanted the Shimano stradic ci4 2500 because this reel is so light that it would pair so nice with the rod. You also got to take in mind that some rods perform a bit better with specific lines. Is that line power pro super 8 slick? I had bad experience with this braided line.

Midwest Bass Hunter says:

That reel seat is very interesting.

Jay Pible says:

so strange to see the line wrapping around like that.. i paired mine with a sustain 2500 and 4000 and have not had this issue.. maybe its the reel?

H Milanes says:

does this rod have a solid carbon tip?

Maged Ibrahim says:
