Phenix Rods is one of the premiere rod makers on the market today, using a blend of materials to create rods that are lightweight but have enough backbone to meet any fishing application.
If you're looking to get a high-end, all-around rod for the holidays, check out the PHD888MH rod by Phenix.
Built on the company's proprietary blend of high strength, woven carbon fiber and Kevlar, this hybrid blank makes a great choice for fishing live bait or casting light iron.
At $379, these rods aren't cheap but you end up with an 8-foot, 8-inch rod that's lightweight and sensitive yet super strong with quality components including Fuji silicon carbide guides, Hypalon grips and an Alps Centra Lock reel seat. If the PHD888MH is out of your price range, look at the PSW869H Black Diamond. It's $100 cheaper and still a great stick.

Phenix Rods began in 1977 and has since created a devoted following of anglers that appreciated the company's high-end rods. In 2006, Phenix expanded its product line with a much wider range of rod offerings that utilize premium design and components while still preserving the brand's custom quality, look and feel. Since then, Phenix has launched more application-specific models for all sorts of fishing, as well as a boost in sensitivity and a decrease in overall rod weight.
