Legendary HMG Gets A New Look
Friday, December 20, 2013
In 1973, Fenwick came out with the first-ever graphite rod, named the HMG (for High Modulus Graphite). Now 40 years later, Fenwick is giving a fresh new look to the rod that transformed the fishing industry and has caught countless fish through the years.
The new HMG combines the time-tested technology of a high-modulus blank with more modern innovations such as its comfortable, durable Fuji 5K reel seat, its strong yet smooth titanium guides, and Fenwick’s easy-grip, soft TAC material. The HMG also sports a newly designed Carbon Bound blank that incorporates carbon thread wrapped around the rod to strengthen the high modulus material while keeping weight to a minimum.
The HMG’s most striking new feature is its completely redesigned handle. While the handle still maintains its iconic TAC grip, the TAC is highlighted with EVA foam accents that add a more modern look and comfortable feel.
The entire handle is also much slimmer than past models, not only making the all-new HMG easier and more comfortable to hold, but also contributing to the rod’s overall 10-percent reduction in weight from the previous HMG.
Fenwick’s legendary HMG is once again reborn for the 2014 season, and is available in 6 baitcast and 17 spinning models to suit the needs of any angler. The MSRP is $99.95.
