Fenwick’s new Streamflex line of rods uses a much higher modulus graphite called Powerlux 1000 from 3M. For the Streamflex line, Fenwick uses a medium gray blank with black guide wraps, trimmed with a little green on the butt.
A half wells handle is used with standard sized cork rings. At the base of the handle is a fancy cork ring, which leads to the very attractive reel seat. A gray anodized aluminum double lock seat is used, with good nylon rings on the upper side that provide an excellent lock up. A fancy burled wood insert is used.
The guides start with a hook keeper, one SIC style stripper, followed with black colored hard chrome single foot guides. Alignment dots are used on each rod section, a nice touch.
