Fenwick Eagle 9'6 ms model

Usually I wont comment unless product is very good or very bad. While this rod feel very good when you hold it, I have to say I'm terribly disappointed with it. While throwing a 1/2 ko wobbler for coho salmon, the both broke while setting the hook on a 4lb brown trout using 10lb test with the drag set around 6lbs. I cant put into words my shock and embarrassment.
The 8'6 Medium is a Sweet Stick!

This rod is SWEET! Very light in the hand and sensitive. I use this rod primarily for Jerkbaits from shore but it has a pretty fast action so it works well for jigging also. Things to know about it, I think the lure rating is slightly overrated. I would rate it more around a 1/4oz-3/4oz tip with heavy backbone. I also would not put 15lb line on the rod, I would rate it more of a 8-12lb line rod. The guides are cheap, but they are light. I wouldn't run braid on this stick, but because of its fast action it is great with mono and you get a balanced rod with a small reel because they are light. All in all, the balance and feel I'd expect from a $150 stick at a $70 price point. If you break the rod, it is user error 9 times out of 10. Light tips and heavy backbones are a disaster if you abuse your gear. Don't high stick, bend in a U shape, or pull snags and you will love this stick!
These are pretty darn nice rods for the money. I own an 8 foot, six inch model. The handles are very comfortable and the fit and finish is quite nice. I use mine with a 2500 series reel and either 10lb mono or 20lb Sufix braid for carp in the small river that I fish. I have landed carp well over twenty pounds using this combo. The rod has a nice sensitive tip, as well as the power to put the brakes on a hard-running fish. The main concern that I have are the stainless steel guide inserts and their potential longevity. Other than that I love this rod.
