Phenix K2 tx713ml-s

Hello all.


Has anyone here built on this blank? I typically build 7ft St Croix 5sml for jig fishing walleye but always looking for the next great thing lol. Curious about their lure weight rating (1/16-1/2oz) this seems like a big spread. Any other power comparisons out there between the St Croix 5S and the Phenix 713ml?

Thanks in advance

There is no science to the selection of lure weights, that said the spread would make me believe this may be an XF tipped rod that may be similar to the ST Croix #S76MLXF that comes in many graphites and one or 2 piece.

I bit the bullet and ordered the Phenix blank. Will be assembled with PAC Bay minima guides. I’ll report results when it’s complete
