Denali has been on a tear lately with the refinement and extension of their rod offerings. ICAST 2017 was no different. This year, the company introduces a brand new budget series of rods and then extends themselves into another market all together with the introduction of a brand new inshore series.


Introducing Fission by Denali built on IM7 blanks with...


Winn Grips.


Fission: Family priced right at $89.99, Denali introduces Fission, a budget minded series of rods built from the ground up for sensitivity, versatility, and high end styling. These rods feature the new wonder-grip material by Winn, IM7 graphite blanks, split reel seats, and 304 Stainless Steel, Duraloc Guides.

The Winn Grips certainly are comfortable.

Conclusion: Denali is finding their stride in recent years and with the introduction of these two series, doesn't look to be slowing down anytime soon. The new Fission series is a really promising option for those anglers on a budget and the new Kovert Inshore series, with the stylish grips are going to be sought after by more than just inshore anglers.
