Fenwick builds its inshore rods with a backbone of durable graphite composite, then adds quality components such as Fuji SIC (silicon carbide) guides to manage heat dissipation. The Fuji reel seats are graphite nylon, topped with S4 stainless-steel hoods. The Corkalon grips look like cork but feel like Hypalon, for comfort lasting all day.
The rods measure 6 1/2 to 9 feet with actions tailored per application, including spinning, casting, snook/striped bass and live bait. Retail cost is $199.99 to $349.99.
