Introduction:
Phenix has been a popular rod name over the years, but there has seemingly been a big resurgence in the brand ever since introducing their Recon bass rods a couple years ago.  Even though their bass rods have certainly been well received, their other sticks are no slouches either. Phenix certainly was not lazy at this year's ICAST show, as they showcased a large variety of new products. All of the following new additions are available now!

 


New for this season Phenix introduces new Inshore rods in their M1 Series

 

M1 Inshore: The new M1 Inshore rods take attributes from the M1 bass series and make it accessible to the die hard saltwater angler. With 3 spinning and 11 casting models to choose from between 7'3” and 9'0” in length, anglers will find a variety of sticks for many applications. All rods are 1 piece, and utilize Fuji guides with a Phenix reel seat and custom EVA grips. Prices range from $169.00 to $239.00.

 


Phenix Inshore rods have grips and seats that exude personality

 

Megalodon Jigging Rods: This short series of 8 casting and 4 spinning rods comes in either 5'6” or 6'0” lengths. Perfect for applications like vertical jigging, they sport moderate-fast tapers for the ultimate in jig and fish-fighting control. Constructed using T12 and T40 technology, these rods are up to the task of prolonged battles with big, deep water pelagics. Each rod also features Fuji K guides and reel seats, custom EVA grips, and a special Phenix-designed swivel gimbal. Look for these rods to cost between $279.00-$329.00.

 


With a name like Megladon you know this rod has to be beefy

 

Megalodon Popping Rods: These 3 rods are similar to the jigging series, but are offered in longer lengths between 7'6” and 8'8”. These lengthier sizes makes them ideal for throwing big chuggers or iron a great distance. You can grab one of these sticks for a price of $359.00-$389.00.

Black Diamond Surf: For the avid surf caster, Phenix now offers the new Black Diamond surf rods. There are 6 rods in the series all with 2 piece construction between 9'0” and 13'0” long. Light weight, extreme sensitivity, and crisp casts are achieved through the usage of 30 and 40 ton composite material. Fuji K guides allow smooth line flow, while a custom adjustable Phenix reel seat lets you position your reel exactly where you want it for maximum comfort and balance. This series is priced between $319.00 to $399.00.
