Part of Fenwick’s larger series, the Fenlite Series, the Streamflex is their rod taper designed for freshwater angling with a specific focus on trout fishing. These rods utilize functional componentry, a lightweight blank design, and a freshwater-specific taper for versatile trout-based performance. The best part? They’re some of the most high-performance, affordable rods on the market in a variety of freshwater rod models to cater to any river angling scenario.
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 all water environments where repetitive casting or precision dry fly fishing is essential. High Modulus graphite also keeps the rods responsive and sensitive. The blank on the Fenwick Fenlite Streamflex is the ultimate balance between power and sensitivity.
Gunsmoke Stripping Guides - Gunsmoke stripping guides minimize unneeded weight and contribute to the functionality of the Fenlite Streamflex. The stripping guides and snake guides are secured with quality thread wraps.
Single Foot Snake Guides - The snake guides on the Fenlite Streamflex are quiet and functional. Snake guides decrease friction and improve line shooting capabilities. Single-foot snake guides also decrease overall rod weight. Many major rod manufacturers use snake guides because they’re time-proven and industry-accepted.
Burled Wood Insert w/Double Uplocking Components - The Streamflex has a beautiful burled wood insert and a double uplocking component to anchor small freshwater fly reels. The wood insert on the Streamflex gives the rod a classic trout feel without sacrificing performance or durability.
Hard Partitioned Rod Tube - The Fenlite Streamflex comes in a hard rod tube that’s partitioned for easy rod storage. This rod tube will keep the Fenlite safe during transportation, travel, and time in the boat.
Limited Lifetime Warranty - The Fenlite Streamflex 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.
