Fenwick EliteTECH Smallmouth Series Rod Review by Kevin

EliteTECH Smallmouth Series ESMC69MH-F 

Rating: 8.16
 

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: 

When I received Fenwick’s HMG Spinning Rod GS66MH-F, I really liked it.  It was nicely designed and a well-made rod.  It also had a new age design look to it.

Fenwick EliteTECH Smallmouth Series Rod ESMS63MH-F

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.

Fenwick HMG Triggerstik: Dave

Fenwick HMG Triggerstik GT70MH-F

Rating: 7.50
 

First Impressions: 

First thing you notice about the HMG Triggerstik GT70MH-F is its appearance. The rod has a black epoxy coated blank and the wrapping on the guides are black with gold tips which goes nicely with the gold lettering on the blank. The grip is very interesting; it is what Fenwick calls TAC, which stands for technically advanced construction. It is designed for the angler to have better grip during wet conditions so it’s a different material then traditional cork.

Keitech USA Swimbait Review

After doing the review of Keitech’s Model 1 jigs this spring, I jumped at the chance when Brendan asked me to do another review of a Keitech product. This time it was a review of one of their soft plastic lines, the Swing Impact.
