Phenix X-Series Composite Crankbait Casting Rods

Representative of the entire Phenix Crankbait Casting Rod Series, the X10 model was a recent recipient of the coveted TackleTour.com Editor's Choice Award for a Crankbait rod. The X10 impressed the Editors at TackleTour with its high level of performance, great price point and versatility. Combining the best of old and new, the Phenix Crankbait Series is constructed with high modulus graphite and carbon fibers, flowing seamlessly into a fiberglass tip.

The forgiving fiberglass tip can absorb strikes and still keep the fish pinned, while the high modulus graphite and carbon fibers provide plenty of backbone. The rod's lightweight might be deceiving, but rest assured the backbone holds solid for bigger bass while the tip dances back and forth absorbing every dive and head turn with ease. The Phenix Crankbait Casting Rods are perfect for tossing deep divers, lipless cranks and speedtraps and when necessary can even double as a decent spinnerbait stick. Utilizing only Fuji components, a Fuji reel seat and Fuji Alconite guides, you not only get maximum value but maximum quality as well.

Customer Reviews

Comments: The x-series is tried & proven year after year. I have the x-12 & use it for crankbaits. However, I feel as though the x-13 is better for the LC flash minnow 110, Megabass 110, Duo Realis 110, etc baits. The x-14 is even better if you are looking for a longer rod, especially for the surf or the bays. I can feel the vibration of the action of the lure better on the x-13 than then x-12. IF you are stuck between two powers, go a power up since this series seems to run a bit lighter than they have listed. If you are debating between a x-series & another rod, choose the x-series for Phenix warranty. They have a great warranty & follow through with it!

Comments: X14 is a beast! I got the rod earlier this year and the deep crank bite hasn't taken off yet but I have been using this thing for 5"-6" swimbaits and this rod handles them so well its not funny. Plenty of power for chucking big baits but that awesome front end is forgiving just like you want with treble hook baits. Tackle Warehouse you need to stock the new X14's!

Comments: Bought the X9 and i am absolutly in love!!!!

From: Jason: Southern Cali

Comments: Sweet rod, absolutely worth it!  Got the heavier version, very soft tip, balances nicely with revo winch.  Great for crankin!

From: Jimmy: Chicago

Comments: Fantastic rod! Absolutely love it for everything from square bills to bigger baits like deep Fat Free Shads.

From: P: VA

Comments: Great rod!  The hits just keep on coming from the good folks at Phenix and this rod is no exception.  I have an X10 paired with a Curado 200E5 and it is an absolutely great combo for lighter to average sized crank baits and works great for spinner/chatterbaits as well.  The hybrid design of this rod is brilliantly crafted.

From: Andy: Janesville, WI

Comments:  I have two of the X-12 crankbait rods. These rods work great for small to medium crankbaits, and even DD22's. They are very lite and sensitive. You will not be disappointed!!!!!

From: Darren: Marshall, NC

Comments: I originally purchased the X10 for deep cranking but found it was better suited for square bill and shallow cranks. It is now my favorite cranking and top water rod for poppers. Super light and a surprising amount of back bone when you hook up with big fish! I'm told the X13 is the rod you want for things like DD22s! Time to save some more money.
