Thinking about getting a Fenwick

Recommended Posts

So im thinking about getting me a fenwick this will be my first fenwick. Im thinking about getting the Elite Riggin Stick 7'3 MH. What do you guys think do you think i will like the sensitivity and the rod over all better than a G Loomis Mossyback Carolina rigging rod?

I have a Techna AV which is a fine rod, but at their new pricing level,

I don't think they are a value. At the pricing point you are looking at,

the St. Croix is a better value.  Wait a couple of months and the

Legend Elite will be on sale, BIG TIME!  St. Croix is introducing a new

line-up.

Are you talking about Fenwick Elite Tech? I have a 7'3' MH Elite Tech Crankshaft. It's a really nice rod. I think it compares favorably to other rods I examined before I bough it, like Lamiglass, Powell, American Rodsmith and Kistler.

As far as the other Fenwicks, I disgaree with RW. I think they are fantastic values. According to the folks at Tackle Tour, the Fenwick HMG is very comparable to the St. Croix Avid, and costs considerably less. The Techna AV according to people that own both, is very comparable to the Loomis IMX, again for less.

You can't go wrong with Fenwick. They have an extremely long history of prodicing great rods.

Chaddy,  a bit of advise,  I know you're young but,  try just stating your opinion without calling someone else's post a joke.

Really the best thing to do is buy one and make your own decision about the rod.

There are many quality rods and every one will tell you theirs are the best. The rod wars just seem to go on and on.

I have two spinning HMX and a Techna AV baitcaster, for the money they are fine rods.

I would agree as far as the IMX. I have four Crucials and one Techna AV. The AV is much more sensitive then the Crucial but is a bit more money. If price is the only comparision then I would agree.

 The Fenwick Rods are excellent value, just as good as a Crucial. I love 14 year olds who know how to state all their years experience in a polite way. :-/

Okay let me restate my sentence I see others feel I'm coming off too harsh which i believe I am, in my humble opinion I feel that the shimano crucial apples to apples here 7' mh fast action is  a crisper rod that the techna av 7' mh fast action that is about 4 years old.

Don't get me wrong here both are great rods in fact fit and finish i would give the fenwick the nod. Then again what to I know I'm 14 :-/

I have fished with IMX's and Techna AV's, and I like the Techna's just as well or better.  I don't like Fenwicks new price points, but if you can find a used one at an affordable price, don't hesitate to pick it up.

My local dealer sells HMXs for $79-90 and HMGs for $99-$109.   I've partook of that deal several times.

I have 2 Techna AV baitcasters & 1 Crucial spinning rod.  For bottom bouncing techniques I find the Techna AV's to be significantly more sensitive.  However, that is just my perception.
