Fast-taper, fast-action, cross-scrim graphite performance. Some rods just feel right. The Fenwick HMX series, with its true fast taper, happens to be one of them. This allows for faster actions with no weight increase. Cross-scrim IM7 graphite adds strength and balance to the butt section, making the HMX series ideal for situations where quick reflex hooksets and light weight are important. The cross-scrim construction also lends exceptional sensitivity and responsiveness.
