About their rod blanks
FX produces their own blanks. This is an important point because typically, most manufacturers bulk buy the rod blanks they use for their rods, and then rebrand them. But FX Rods does the opposite. They planned and created their own blanks, making it unique and superior than the rest.
Take this into consideration: they have 20+ years of experience in building rods. Each of their rod blanks have 20 years of constant improvement in performance in them. Their rod blanks are unique and patented. The material that they are made with (Japanese Toray Fabric) provides you with a very lightweight, sensitive and durable rod.
About their reel seats
Their reel seats are made of graphite. It has a pass through design that allows your finger to be in direct contact with the blank, so you can have greater control and it will also allow you to feel more bites.
About their line guides
This is another key point. They use Fuji K-Frame Corrosion Control. It’s one of the best materials for line guides in the market, and they are exclusive to FX Rods. Corrosion control is a new finish, which they have tested extensively. This finish is 7 times more resistant to corrosion than regular stainless steel. It’s also a result of an eco-friendly chemical process.
About their grip (WINN)
FX Rods uses Winn grip for their rods. Winn technology provides tackiness to the angler when holding the grip, even in cold weather and with water involved. Winn uses polymer for their grips. Polymer has big advantages. Polymer reduces fatigue when holding your rod, and it also enhances your overall rod control. It’s firm, has great sensitivity and it's light. A lot of anglers would agree that Winn grip is even more superior than cork.
