3M Powerlux Blanks - Fenwick prides itself on the lightweight blanks of the World Class fly rod while continuing the Fenwick tradition of rods that are extremely durable. World Class features 3M Powerlux 500 resin blanks that allow tension to be evenly dispersed under even the greatest of loads. The 3M Powerlux 500 also allows for higher break strengths without increasing overall weight or blank diameters. The World Class also features a sleek gray shaft color with dark green primary thread wraps and lighter flashy green trim wraps.
Fuji K Guides - For style and functionality the World Class has Fuji K guides with stainless steel frames and alconite inserts to help shoot line quicker and farther.
Hard Chromed Snake Guides - Seemingly a classic in today’s fly fishing industry, snake guides fit the World Class nicely and provide industry accepted performance.
Selected Hardwood and Aluminum Reel Seats - The World Class offers either a classy hardwood reel seat or a more flashy bright aluminum seat. Both reel seats combine catchy design with quiet functionality to lock down any reel.
High Grade Custom Cork Handle - The World Class boasts a high grade custom tapered cork handle allowing even the most soft-handed angler to cast for days at a time without fatigue. The handles come in both Reversed Half-Wells and Full Wells options.
Brown and White Rod Tube - Fenwick offers a brown rod tube with white accents to protect the World Class in travel. The rod tube presents the classic Fenwick patch with the majestic white Fenwick eagle.
Limited Lifetime Warranty - The World Class falls under Fenwick’s limited lifetime warranty. As of March 2017, 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.
