Phenix Rods has been reborn with their rich rod building history still intact. Their steep bass fishing tradition is carried forward with the Ultra MBX Casting Rod Series, which offers bold new stylings and materials. The Ultra MBX blanks are constructed with high modulus graphite and carbon fibers woven together in a unique process that allows them to remain lightweight, while also providing enhanced sensitivity with plenty of fish pulling strength.

All Ultra MBX rods feature Phenix's very own specially designed reel seat. This reel seat allows you to feel the blank directly for increased sensitivity. Additionally, the way the blank lines up with the reel seat elevates your palm for ergonomic comfort and increased casting accuracy. Premium components, such as Fuji SiC Guides and a split grip handle (for maximum touch and sensitivity), solidify the Phenix Ultra MBX Casting Rods as rods to be reckoned with.

Customer Reviews

Comments:  I purchased the 7'7" Heavy for a jig rod and lets just say I found my new favorite. I wanted a rod that would load nicely on fish of all sizes and for fish 1lb and up it does just that not to mention it is super sensitive. I would put it on par with the loomis IMX lineup I have previously used. Great rods!

From: Justin: Redmond OR

Comments: I have the 700MH Super strong very versatile and really sensitive

From: Sean: So Cal

Comments: Have had the 700H for about a month now. Casts great, extremely sensitive, and have not had a single issue with any component on the rod. I love it, it's my go to rod. The problem will come when I buy another. I won't know which one to use first. I switched over from Dobyns and Shimano. Give Phenix a try, you will not be dissapointed.

From: Steven: Sylmar, CA

Comments: Had this rod for 2 months broke on a hook set ,3.5 lb bass.they wouldnt cover it under warranty .cost me $80 with all the shipping charges and there replacement fee,verrrry unhappy ,will never purchase another Phenix rod.

From: Anthony: Romeoville, IL

Comments: Bought the  7' MH, the rubberizing on the trigger started to flake off after the fist time I used it. The rod looks really nice and is very light. Not worth the money

From: Kayton: San Diego CA

Comments:Picked up the 7'XH and the trigger portion of the handle came loose. There was very little epoxy holding it on. I thought it must have been a fluke, but it happened on all 3 replacement rods I got. I finally just epoxied it back in place myself. Otherwise a nice rod.
