used once with levelwind reel for trolling steelhead and browns in lake erie. will also use for trolling deep diving stickbaits for walleye.might put big spinning reel on and use for cats and musky.Good and sensitive .
I just got this rod three days ago. I used it twice and it seems good for just what I wanted it for. I was looking to throw a half ounce to 3/4 ounce lure and have a lot of action in the rod. I caught a 5 lb striper and it felt great
The rod has good sensitivity and durability. I packed 4 Fenwick eagle rods into one small tube for the airplane and even though the guides bent, they went right back into position. The bend of the rod also has a nice parabolic shape to absorb head shakes from the fish. But even though the rod is soft at the end, it still transmits movements at the end of the line.These rods also make very long casts when paired with the right line and baits. They handled steelhead and salmon on Lake Michigan extremely well.
I ordered this rod and then contacted Pure Fishing customer service to ask them to ship this rod to me with handle style B. The rod was shipped with the Michigan style handle instead. I as always in a hurry went ahead and used the rod anyway. The lower half of the rod had no backbone, and the handle too short. I took another broken Fenwick rod and stripped it down to the bare blank with the lower piece of the handle still on it; shimmed it and epoxied it inside the lower half to extend it for more casting torque, and give it much more backbone and a faster action.
I bought the Fenwick Eagle Salmon/Steelhead Spin MODEL#EA96M-MS-2 in May 2014 and cough a countless number of kings, stealheads, browns, lakers, bass, musky... couple days after after I bought it, I went over the rod with my car by accident but it only got couple scratches and a dent on the handle, I even bent the eyes of the rod couple time and put them back straight without braking them. I still heavily used it until 2 weeks ago, it broke 23" below the tip while fighting a king. I sadly can't find the receipt so I'm screwed... It was me only rod for 3 years and I go fishing very often mainly at the lower Niagara river (strong current. I really like this rod. I'll get same one ASAP!
I have this rod in 7 foot medium heavy fast tip spooled with 14 lb braid. Ive had and fished a lot of poles in my life, and this one by far is the best I've used. Words cannot explain how great this thing feels. But if i had to try, it has a PERFECT balance of stiffness and sensitivity. Paired with braid line, I can feel absolutely everything thats going on with my bait. Ive never been able to control my lure as well as I can with this pole. And for how sensitive it is i can put a ton of power behind it setting the hook. Best $70 I've spent.
