A new generation of saltwater blanks has been born. Constructed with Torays high strength Carbon Fibers, the Black Diamond uses a unique layering process and a secret sauce resin. This combination of aerospace technology has allowed us to give birth to a new age in blank technology. The Black Diamond series has a thinner diameter and a lower weight, allowing it to be the lightest rod in its class. Keeping true to the Phenix Rod brand the Black Diamond series holds true to the premium quality design and components.
