Do 13 fishing rods run heavy? (Envy Black)

Recommended Posts

Does anybody who has experience with 13 fishing think that the power ratings are accurate or underrated/overrated? Looking at the Envy Black rods and I see nothing but good reviews on TW. 

 

Thanks Harrison

13 runs pretty accurate to their ratings in my experience.

I have a 71mhxf envy black. It seems pretty accurate although I don’t have a ton of experience with mh rods from multiple manufacturers.

I have an Omen Black that runs pretty identical to Kistlers' power ratings.

I'll second your comment.  They're my two favorite brands.

I have 3 and all seem to be lighter than claimed.

As long as it’s not like a full power rating light I don’t mind, if it’s just on the lighter side of a MH and like a M then I’m not worried. 

 

 

Thank you everyone for the repsonses!

It is very sensitive and light. I use it mostly as my bottom contact rod.

Well i just realized that I’ve been saying Envy Black when I really meant M-U-S-E. Oops.... hopefully they are relatively similar even tho the Envy is $100+ more. Thanks for you input!

 

had to put dashes in that because otherwise it becomes 3 stars. Annoying lol

Does this mean the company that shall not be named is back in good graces with Bass Resource or at least has a truce?

Yup, works.

 

 

Now: anyone have experience with the 7'1" Heavy-Fast Omen Black 2 for frogs?  I see they're being closed out on TW, and I've been looking for a frog rod with short-ish handle...this model seems to fit the bill.

I guess their time in the penalty box must be over.

Yes, as long as everyone can behave themselves. Hopefully the spammers/prostaffers don't come back and it doesn't have to change back.

I have 1 7’6” heavy extra fast and it feels prettt much what it’s rated for! Excellent power, excellent sensitivity and find it a decent value for money! I’ve seen them on sale now getting rid of old stock and they are a killer rod at that price!

So it was overpromotion that caused them to be kicked before?

Ratings can’t be “accurate “ or “true” because there is no standard only subjective descriptions. A better way to get the info you’re after is to compare to a rod line you’re familiar with.

I'd love to hear more details on the new Envy Black 2s.it seems even 13 doesn't want to talk about it.

I had 7'6" Omen Black 2

Poor quality bad ergonomics leading to subpar sensitivity, returned it.
