Phenix Rods long standing bass fishing tradition reflects all the unique characters portrayed in a Ultra MBX bass rod. The Ultra MBX series is fully complemented by the Phenix Ultra blank. To further harmonize this incredible blank, we designed our very own open body ergonomic reel seat. This one of a kind reel seat allows for an offset that lowers the reel to the blank while elevating your grip. This distinctive design increases the ergonomic comfort in your palm and casting accuracy. Using only the highest quality Fuji SiC Components and rare burl / cork split handles, we have created the most well balanced high performance bass rod available on the market today.
