Fenwick EliteTECH Smallmouth Series Rod Review by Kevin

First Impressions: 

The first thing I noticed about this rod when I pulled it out of the shipping tube was the green color with gold lettering that really made the rod “pop” in the sunlight.. .But there is more to this rod than just its good looks.

First Impressions: 

A great looking rod, a soft green color, and a great looking cork on the handle.  The TAC inlay set off nicely from the fine grain cork.  The split grip was clean looking and not too space age.  The handle fit my hand offering me a full hand feel.  It balanced nicely with the reel I used.  A quick flex with the tip on the floor presented the J form curve I expect and prefer from a fast action rod.
