Fenwick Rod

What kind of fish is the fenwick hmx model HMXT72MH-F for?

Is it a good bass rod or is it too big?

The HMX series has everything from ultralight rods to medium heavy rods, according to Basspro.com. I'm assuming the "MH" in the model number listed refers to medium heavy. In this case, yes that would be perfectly fine for Bass fishing.

Again, I don't know exactly which rod that is, nor do I know every single rod in the HMX line. So, keep in mind, there are spinning rods and there are baitcasting rods. Obviously, you need to choose your rod according to the reel that you will be equipping it on, which brings up something else. If you have a spinning reel that you're wanting to put on this medium heavy rod, it may be a bit overboard for Bass fishing. Normally, spinning reels are equipped on medium action rods, unless you're after bigger and harder fighting fish.

So, if it were me, I probably wouldn't get a medium heavy rod for a spinning reel, but I definitely would for a baitcasting reel. Just my opinion.
