Comments: The med hvy is a good chovie stick for calicos and could be used for small plastics, pulled 4 and 5 pound calicos on chovies and got a 27 inch barracuda using 20 lb izorline xxx and 12 lb with my Cumara 7' foot 2 inch med hvy using for Berkeley gulp saltwater flukes with a owner twist lock hook 1/2 oz pulled a 5 1/2 on 12 lb test on that rod

Comments: Med/Hvy Handles Lil Creepers to 68 Huds and 300 reels well. Hvy. Handles 6" Huds to 8" Huds and 400 reels well. You need the action for good hook sets. Sensitive. Good size handle. Launches max. weights well. Guides are ok for braid, best with Maxima. Hook Keep on right side stays out of the way. Can get away with lighter applications as well. Satisfied with purchase. Get the Hvy and throw the big stuff!

Comments: I throw a Rigs on the rod, and swim baits. This rod is awesome for a rigs, couldn't get a better rod.. The reel seat doesn't exactly fit my Curado 300e, it shifts around when you grind in a fish but other then that flawless.
From: Unknown: USA 2/28/14
Comments: Reel seat broke after 1 trip. Save a few more $'s and buy a Dobyns. Worth every penny and then some.
From: CFM: Socal
Comments: the 8 ft heavy with a curado 300e and 30lb mono is the most versatile combo you could ever ask for as a swimbait fisherman, this is a quality product and ill definitely be buying more phenix rods from this point on
From: Nick: Canada
Comments: Great rod I picked up the heavy model and I throw my 8" hudds and triple trout on this rod and it handles them very well. Very versatile in my opinion, this is the only rod I bring with me when I go swimbait fishing.
From: Razor: Los Angeles, CA
Comments: Got the heavy, its rated up to 6 but the sweet spot is less. Beautiful rod reeks of quality. Allows me to carry one less rod since its so light and has a wide application range it can perform double duty imo. The checkered carbon weave has a rubberized clear coating. I love perfect handle length allowing casting leverage and yet some action. Love the full grip allows me to work with and grip the entire handle length. Very sensitive too for a swimbait rod, can feel subtleness when working the bottom. Not too thin and not too thick yet has good backbone. I love this rod! ..now I'm wondering how much better the Swimbait classics may be!
From: Ric: NJ, USA
Comments: Awesome rod. Throwing 9" ms slammer and nailed a 6 pounder and it wasn't even fair. great rod!
From: Justin: landrum,sc
Comments: Pros: First off, the rod feels great. It has a perfect tapper, the grip is awesome, perfect handle length and overall solid design. Can throw 4inch Spro shad all the way up to 8inch punkers.
Cons: Now what really matters. first off, this is my 4th phenix rod that has broken. I baby the heck out of my rods so I know it isnt operator error. The first two were recon 1's which, apparently, there was a defect so they replaced them all with the recon 2's. I have broken this particular rod 2. The first time I was walkin a punker on the surfance. Steady twitched up and down, nothing violent at all. Reel wobbles off the rod. Look down, the reel seat broke. Ok...things happen.
Get replacement rod. FIRST cast on a BBZ, the tip breaks a foot down. DOne with Phenix. And their customer service. Im sorry, paying a 55 dollar fee, 20 dollars to ship it there and then 20 dollars to ship it back? Thats insane.
From: Jared: CA
Comments: UPS broke the shipping tube and it survived so it's a tough rod. Cool rubberized grip and has a unique finish. Throws baits up to the 6 oz rating with ease.
From: Chuck: USA
Comments: one word awsome pair it with curado 300e = perfction well worth the money thanx phenix
From: Todd: Dallas, TX
Comments: I just got the 8' Heavy and it is very light and the finish is flawless. Action is a proper moderate and it has a nice feel in the hand - balanced for a heavy stick too!
From: Stephen: Denmark
Comments: either rod makes for a killer a-rig rod.. plus with the 8 foot length you can chuck anything a mile
