Three-piece travel rod perfect for travel of any kind. Fenwick® HMG® changed fishing forever in 1973 with the creation of the first ever all graphite fishing rod. HMG® meant High Modulus Graphite then and it still stands for it today. So much has changed in 50 years but craftsmanship and innovation are in our DNA. HMG® has been completely re-designed inside and out and there is no question it is our best HMG® ever. Constructed with a blend of 30 and 24 Ton high modulus graphite is the definition of our namesake and remains at the core of the series. A proprietary new design process delivers excellent sensitivity and very crisp actions for all applications. Fenwick designed soft touch reel seats provide great hand feel and direct access to the most sensitive part of the rod, the blank. The original HMG® became a legend in the hands of Anglers worldwide. The culmination of our more than 70 year history in making the best rods for the most discerning anglers has delivered the result of the new HMG® destined to be the next legendary Fenwick® rod in your arsenal.
