Fenwick HMG


Recommended Posts

So I've been stalking these forums for forever and finally made an account, but I have a question regarding the Fenwick HMG. I was looking at the 6'6" ml mod. fast. It will be my canoe/BWCA rod and I will be jigging/cranking with it. what do you think about this rod? How Will the mod. fast be while jigging? and lastly any other suggestions at the 100$ price point?

thanks, 7mm-08

I have the HMG in a 6'6" M-F. Rod is well built, sensitive, but a bit heavy for a Medium in my opinion. I personally like a Fast or Xtra Fast tip for jigging. I would say that if you won't be trolling cranks, go Fast action. I picked up an Elite Tech ML-F and Pfluegger President for $130 this summer, and haven't put it down yet. I use it for everything, and it does it well.

I held a limit creek smoothie which was very nice, I didnt like the handle on the compre, the HMG felt sweet but it really bugs me that it doesnt come in a fast action so its between the HMG and smoothie, leaning towards the smoothie. Thanks for the help choosing my new rod, 7mm-08 smile
