Fenwick’s flagship saltwater rod series, the Fenlite Salt, takes saltwater angling to a new level. These rods are lightweight, strong, and designed specifically for long days in the salt. Whether you’re blind casting for Stripers in New England or spotting Bonefish in the tropics, the Fenlite Salt’s blank technology, powerful taper, and functional componentry will help you catch more fish. The best part? Fenwick provides all this technology and performance at an affordable price point so novice and expert anglers alike can enjoy time on the water.
High Modulus 3M Powerlux 1000 Carbon Blank - Fenwick’s blank technology and 3M Powerlux 1000 nano resin create a rod blank that’s powerful and strong. The rod blank is durable but lightweight, perfect for saltwater environments where repetitive casting is essential. High Modulus graphite also keeps the rods responsive and sensitive. The blank on the Fenlite Salt is the ultimate balance between muscle and sensitivity.
Large Diameter Gunsmoke Stripping Guides - Large diameter gunsmoke stripping guides minimize unneeded weight and contribute to the functionality of the Fenlite Salt. The stripping guides and snake guides are secured with dark blue thread wraps.
Double Foot Gunsmoke Snake Guides - The snake guides on the Fenlite Salt are quiet and functional. Snake guides decrease friction and improve line shooting capabilities. Many major rod manufacturers use snake guides because they’re time-proven and industry-accepted.
Woven Graphite w/Double Uplocking Components - The reel seat of the Fenlite Salt is built for saltwater performance. Machined aluminum uplocking components and a woven carbon insert keep the Fenlite Salt functional and durable. The componentry and reel seat of the Fenlite Salt locks down even the largest saltwater fly reels.
Hard Partitioned Rod Tube - The Fenlite Salt comes in a hard rod tube that’s partitioned for easy rod storage. This rod tube will keep the Fenlite Salt safe during transportation, travel, and time in the boat.
Limited Lifetime Warranty - The Fenlite falls under Fenwick’s Limited Lifetime Warranty. As of June 2019, Fenwick will repair or replace any rod that has broken, due to a manufacturer defect, at no charge. Unlike some warranties, Fenwick’s warranty does not cover normal wear and tear, misuse or mistreatment of the rod; however, they will give you a nice discount on a new rod if you do break it accidentally.
