Field and Stream selected the Fenwick Elite Tech Smallmouth rods as the 2012 Fishing Best of the Best Winner for spinning rods. "Fishing Best of the Best" winners, along with other notable fishing gear, are featured in Field & Stream's March issue.
"We worked hard to produce a rod specifically for the smallmouth angler," said Mitch Dreisbach, Fenwick Product Manager. "The Elite Tech Smallmouth rods are fine tuned to fit any smallmouth technique."
Fenwick starts with a high modulus graphite blank designed specifically for smallmouth applications using the Fenwick Development System Technology which is based on over 60 years of research and development of rod materials and design. Titanium frame guides with lightweight Zirconium inserts reduce overall blank weight and line wear.
The Fenwick Elite Tech rods, available in five spinning and five baitcast models, are built with the quality and workmanship that has made Fenwick one of the most recognized names in fishing.
