Phenix Rod 7'9"H
Anglers choice recommends. Catching Halibut and different fishing needs. All purpose rods catching lt-med tuna, yellowtails, bonitos.
ProsAesthetically pleasing look, feel, when holding the grip just about right for casting. Light weight and well built with carbon nanotubes technology, and length choice. Smooth action for braid/ mono lines and lure weight capabilities.
ConsNone at this time

Great rod for Shimano Tranx 301
I purchased this rod to replace a Powell 3D MagHeavy rod, which could not take the pressure fishing for false albicore. The Powell rod broke after the fourth or fifth albie. The next trip out, I had the Phoenix rod, and it was at least as sensitive and accurate as the Powell, plus it was able to take the pressure. Excellent rod. Highly recommend.
ProsRelatively light. Accurate casts. Very sensitive. Very strong for it's weight and sensitivity.

is rod is amazing, extremely well made, beautiful, extra fast, doing par with a daiwa lexa type-hd and excellent set, which is spoken by the disproportionate size, but I can assure that this is not true.

Awesome Rod
I used to only use the shimano teramar rod. well i broke a couple and can no longer get them locally especially since shimano has the 1 year warranty now. Then i decided to order a American Made Rod(Won't name company), but build and ship was taking too long so i canceled and ordered this Phenix rod instead after reading so many reviews online about the company and products. The rod is exceptional and very light. I especially like the carbon fiber reel seat and the phenix custom handle. Cast great and the backbone reeled in a nice 38" red and a 43 lb black ugly. I have it matched with a stradic 5000fj.

My new favorite rod
I'm in love with this rod. Super light weight and plenty strong. I have no problem horsing in Stripers and Gator Blues with this rod. You really have to personally pull on this rod to appreciate it. Also, excellent build quality. I have it paired with a Revo Toro NaCL 61, excellent combo.

Do you think a 711ML would be okay for casting 3/4-1 oz. lures? I know it's recommended for 1-3 oz. but could I get away with going a little lighter?
1 Answers
You'll be ok casting 3/4oz lures, the rod will still load properly.

thinking about getting the smx 73l spinning rod for my Stella 4000. is this a good light tackle combo. I like fast action.
2 Answers
The action on the Phenix rod is fast action and that would be a very well paired light tackle spinning combo.
on March 21, 2018
For a light tackle combo the Phenix SMX 731 rod matched with a Stella 4000 would be a great combo. With the lightweight and fast action your looking for, this combo will have just that and more.

Hi all fellow anglers, I'm currently looking at both SMX-82MH, and SMX-82H to pair up with a Shimano TranX. The line rating between both are 15-35 on the MH and 20-45 on the H, are the ratins for Mono or Braid? I'll be mostly fishing on the surf, jetty, and inlets (pretty much inshore) actively casting for Reds, Snook, Jacks, and Tarpons, which of both would suit better for the occasion? Also I NEED to know if the reel seat is big enough to comfortable fit the TranX?? I had the reel paired up with a Waxwing Terez rod and the reel seat was just a bit to small causing the reel to pop out once in a while!
1 Answers
Those ratings are for monofilament. The reel definitely fits in the seat just fine, I just tried it myself. You could go either way with the rod, it is a very solid combo either rod you go with. I would probably go with the lighter model, unless you are catching large tarpon.
