Customer Reviews Back to Top
Comments: I just purchased the 13 Fishing Envy Black in 7'6" M I paired this rod with a Lew's Tournament Lite. I tried it out today for the first time. This rod is light, sensitive & it loads up perfectly on casts and hooksets. I love this length/action combination, not many rod companies offer a 7'6" M casting model. It works great as a light jig/worm & even a rattle trap rod I feel like I can cast lighter lures farther & I feel like the extra length on this rod helps me get better hookups.

Comments: I purchased the 7'3 MH for jigs, trigs & senkos. It fishes all extremely well but I think it is perfect for flukes. Sensitivity is subjective. Don't know why the other guy or anyone else has issues with recoils grooving but I never have ..even with a Tatula. I guess I'm either lucky or these "grooving" issues are from people not doing something right. Do yourself a favor and get the envy.
From: Josh: San Diego, CA 7/31/15
Comments: I purchased the 7"11 rod a few months ago & the recoil guides are already getting grooves without using braid (I paired it with a lews tp and 12lb mono). I found the rod plenty sensitive and light enough to use all day, but the guides are just not worthy of the rod imho.
From: Victor: Los Angeles, CA 6/7/15
Comments: The 7'1" MH paired with the Concept E is my main weapon of choice, among other 13 combos I own. For Christmas '14 I received the 6'7" MH (want to use for deep jerkbaits) and the first rod arrived with the tip guide 45 degrees offcenter to one side. Upon immediate return and reception of replacement rod, the same problem was evident. Not sure if it was a bad batch, but at this stage I'm exchanging for a St Croix Legend Tournament of same dimensions and ratings. I suggest highly inspecting any rod you receive, especially for the price of these, but if you get one that is structurally sound, 13 rods are a great choice. Plus TW has great customer service to handle these situations.
From: Patrick: Milwaukee, WI 1/24/15
Comments: I bought the 7'3" medium and it is like a medium heavy in some rods but I love it. It has just enough action to throw even light baits a good distance. I used it to throw just 1/8 oz. swim baits and some 1/8-1/4 jigs and it did great with a Lew's Team Reel. It is very easy on the arms as it is light but sensitive and will pull the biggest fish out with no problems. I love it, thanks guys!
From: Randy: Clinton, TN 12/17/14
Comments: So I've only had this rod out for one day, and honestly, this is the highest priced rod I've ever purchased. This rod feels amazing. It balances better than anything I've ever used (paired with a Speed Spool Tournament MG.) Great sensitivity. I was a little worried about the fact that they only have it with the extra fast taper, but I'm finding I like it a lot better with the added sensitivity. I also love the guides and the fact that I feel like I could step on them ten times over (which is the reason I needed a rod asap in the first place) and not have a problem bending them back into place.
From: Ryan: Metro, MN 10/16/14
Comments: awesome rods, fished with all the high end rods loved the recoil guides so I bought one. Got the 7'3 medium for river smallies and cannot say enough good things. Hucks a crank bait like a dream and good for super light texas rigged garbage. Went out and bought the 7'1 heavy and friken love it. they are light and tough. tip is nice. But the 7'1 heavy is money for froggin, flipping / skipping docks. Has a nice tip, not too stiff. Boat flips anything. Loads up well and the tapers seem to be just about right.
From: Patrick: MI 9/16/14
Comments: read the reviews on the envy rods and thought I would take a chance and buy one. I got the 7'6" medium heavy. It is an exceptional rod, well balanced and sensitive. Just not as sensitive as a G-Loomis GLX or a Dobyn's Extreme Champion. (I own several GLX's and dobyn's extreme. I believe it better than the G-loomis GL2 or IMX, just not the GLX. They are still a nice rod and worth it.
From: Jim: Frankston, TX 5/19/14
Comments: Bought a 7'6" MH on black friday from TW, and oh man this rod is just amazing! fished all my buddies rods, Dobyns Champion, Savvy, Phenix recon, Crucial, clarus, powell max, and man this rod just blows them all out of the water. The backbone is awesome! the power is great! it's nice and light! the guides can't be beat! and this rod is an absolute beast! caught a couple of nice bass. Even tested it on stripers and pulled in a 13 pounder on it and it stood no chance. i really recommend getting this rod if you're looking for a new rod.
From: Anthony: USA 4/21/14
Comments: Just picked up the 7'1" MH and it's an awesome rod. Not sure why 13 Fishing rate the power on the low side. If anyone plan to pick up the Envy Black. Go with one power lower than you normally would. The 7'1" MH has a lure weight of 3/8-1oz. Most other rods this would be a "Heavy" classification. Should have bought the Medium instead of the MH. Hope 13 Fishing addresses this. As for quality, it's a superbly made rod for the price. Guides are a bit noisy but that doesn't bother me. They are spaced out perfect and straight. The gripe like most people stated, it's about an inch shorter than my Dobyn's DX 734C SH. So for anyone that plan to buy the Envy Black just look at the lure weight instead of going by what 13 Fishing labels the rod at.
From: LMB: Los Angeles, CA 4/15/14
Comments: I have been using the 7'1" med/hvy for 6 months. The rod is very true to its power and action. It is the most sensitive rod I own. Compared to the Helios rod, carrot stix wild and pg series, powell inferno, and phenix recon 2 this rod outshines all of them. Although it has a price at 50 dollars more it is well worth the extra cash. I have been fishing it with my T-rigs and using it jigging for white bass and it has lead to more fish in the boat. I would recommend this rod to anyone who needs a great all around medium heavy rod. Paired with a revo premier this is the combo I hardly put down.
From: Eric: Houston, TX 3/20/14
Comments: 13 fishing customer support is top notch! I bought the Envy 7 foot 1 medium casting rod and actually broke it on my first fish. I think the rod was damaged during shipment and eventually broke out on the water. Anyhow, I sent the rod in and had a new one in less than a week! These rods are awesome, no issues with the replacement rod. I will be purchasing more 13 Fishing rods soon!
From: Todd: Ponchatoula, LA 3/10/14
Comments: Just bought the 7'3" med hvy and all I can say is wow!!! Very well built,light and sensitive..
From: James: SD
Comments: Purchased the 7'1" Med/Hvy. Have not been able to use the rod yet due to weather, but handling the rod has brought joy to my Revo Premier and I. This is a quality rod with the action corresponding to its label. It is a true medium heavy with a nice tip. After I test drive the rod I will post an updated review.
From: Eric: Houston, Tx
Comments: I use in saltwater. Brought in some 7-9 lb Redfish in record time. Have the 7'1" MED & it can handle the bigger fish. Black Recoil guide are the best and hard to find on a non-custom made rod. Rod will hold up no problem there. My only complaint is that it is not sensitive enough - hard to tell what size fish you have on the end of your line = I think they need a MED-LT blank or even a Light blank, that would be SUPER. Bass fishing the MED would be perfect but I fish plastics and need a MED-LT rod. Weight wise this is an awesomely light rod with a comfortable grip.
From: TC: San Leon, TX
Comments: Hands down the best rod on the market! The components on these rods are the same as the ones on $400+ rods. Super sensitive, light weight, durable, balanced, and at a GREAT price. If you are thinking about buying one of these, go ahead a pull the trigger you will not be disappointed.
From: Michael: TX
Comments: Would be my favorite rod, if the fore-grip wasn't on the rod. I would rather my finger be on the blank instead of a foam fore-grip. Other than that, it's a great rod. Very light and sensitive
From: Brandon: NC
Comments: I got the 7'1" medium and put a Revo MGX on it. I thought i would use it for crankbaits but i love it so much I can't put it down. The thing is so light and sensitive. I find myself leaving my other rods on the deck and tying on different lures. I'm using 15Lb fluorocarbon and put a beaver with a 1/8 oz worm weight on it and I can feel every leaf. I set the hook on the 1st few rocks that I hit because it felt like a bite. Even though it is a medium you wouldn't think it of it as a worm rod but it has a fast tip that leads into the backbaone about a 1/4 of the way down the rod for good hook sets. I only have a few older cumara rods in this price range to compare it to. This is a GREAT rod. I will be getting more Envy Black rods.
From: Randy: Hastings Nebraska
Comments: Excellent Rod! First impressions revealed amazing attention to details on this rod. The 7,3MH is light, sensitive and has a unique taper with lots of tip, and the backbone to go with it. 10/10!
From: Sprog: South Africa
Comments: I am a flipper, when I saw the Envy Black 7'6'' H I was immediately taken with it but was even more impressed over the past 3 months flippin docks, wood, and rock up here in the north country. The sensitivity, power, accuracy, and balance are all excellent, and I truly value the recoil guides- I was a dobyns guy for several years but had multiple guide inserts shatter on multiple 765 champions while flippin with floro. The only thing I would request from 13 is a 7'11'' or 8' Moderate Hvy/XHv flip stick for mat punching (braid). If bass fishing equals flipping for you, pick up a 7'6'' Envy.
From: Tim: WI
Comments: 13 fishing is taking over rod building. I bought the omen just to see if they were worth all the hype for a 100 dollar rod. I must say i would have been fine fishing all omens the rest of my life. Unbeleivable balance and sensitivity. Then i bought the envy and now im selling everything off. Only rods ill use just hope they give a better option for cranking. But the envy or omen theres both just rediculous. Awsome company thanks 13
From: Kyle: bad bass state ohio
Comments: the very best quality and feeling rods , hands down , have sold all my ducketts and buying all 13 envy rods now!
From: B: Danville, Va.
Comments: all im saying is im now selling my glx's and switching to these
From: Alex: Mooresville N. Carolina
Comments: just bought a 7'6'' H-XF envy rod/ feels ligther than the stcroix tourny 7'6'' mh-mf and gl2 7'5'' H-F, once snow melts here in minnesota and bass season starts, will submit another review on its performances...
From: Bassaddict: MN
Comments: Just Buy it, 7'3 MH, youll be set and i gurantee you'll change you rods over to 13 fishing's envy line of rods. simply amazed at the quality sensitivity and power. the tip guide looks to have an insert on it. very comparable to glx and champion extremes. sensitivity of a nrx thats for sure.
From: Tim: TX
Comments: This rod is incredible. I got one after my partner raved on about how sensitive his was, and he wasnt exaggerating. This thing looks great and fishes awesome. I have a few now but i would go 7'3" medium heavy if you are looking to try one out. I think this is the best all purpose rod i have ever used, i also have a 7'1" medium and a 7'3" heavy equally as good just not as all purpose as the mh. I like the recoil guides but they are a love em or hate em kind of thing.
From: Blake: AL
Comments: I have never settled on a rod brand because I struggled to find that balance of performance, value, price,quality, feel etc. At the recommendation of friend I got the 7'11" and this thing is the real deal. I won't even say it is good for the price. It just a great rod period. I am in the process of switching all my rids to the Envy series. Great product.
From: Jesse: New Richmond, WI
Comments: Worth every bit of $250.00! These are the best flipping sticks I have ever held. Super sensative. They are just awesome. I just purchased 2 more. I have to sell rods now so I can buy more of these.
From: Traybird: Bridge City, TX
Comments: i have the omen rod($100) and it is more sensitive and and lighter than my g loomis gl2 rod, which cost $200, and these envy rods have 40 ton graphite so thats even lighter and more sensitive than the 30 ton of the omen rods, i just ordered the 7'3" envy casting rod, MH so once i get out and use it, ill post a review, but for now i hope this helps. BTW, the omen rods are VERY nice for there price, very well balanced and awesome looks and feel in your hands, i highly recommend 13 fishing.
From: David: Enumclaw, WA
Comments: The new Envy lineups are very impressive rods. . . Just a bit lighter and with the 40ton graphite, a bit stiffer overall profile. The recoil guides are awesome and the reel seat is super comfortable to flip with all day. . . The Medium Heavys are stiff and the Heavys are for the nasty stuff or the big girls! Anything with trebles or moving action, go with the medium actions. . . Give 13 a try!!!
