I agree. Hmm Fenwick is a reappearing guest - I will have to look into those rods esp. if any of them are moderate/moderate-fast action suitable for treble hook moving baits.

My current lineup although its always changing. Fenwick pmx 6'6L P&J / Z-pride limited. Fenwick Golden Wing KTF 6ftL / ZPI 732 aldebaran mg7. And Fenwick Super Techna KTF 6ft L / 16 Aldebaran bfs 6:5 model. Ill most likely drop a ktf spool in this one. Also have a 6'5L expride that is a favorite.

The Hoolgan, thanks for showing those gorgeous setups. Are the Fenwick rods all JDM? Cant seem to find many L/ML Fenwick rods in U S shops.

In my experience, all of the UL or L powered BFS rods that I have used are suitable for lures with treble hooks regardless of whether or not they have a moderate, fast or extra fast tip so I would not lose any sleep trying to find that perfect rod. Having said that, I would rather have a fast or extra fast BFS rod because I can use it for any technique. Take for example my 6’5” L BFS Expride, it has an extra fast tip but I would not hesitate to fish the tiny Strike King Bitsy Minnow with it and then switch to a Flick Shake or a Finesse Jig.
