yes. Their Icon series is 100% USA made from my understanding.

Fenix is still my favorite brand for sensitivity.....but my go to rod is my cashion icon for my confidence bait (dragging a craw). Id say its a hair more sensitive than the Phenix feather...in my opinion.

I have a few of the Cashion rods. The ones with the yellow “carbon” grips. They are pretty good rods. They run about a power light. So if you want a medium heavy, get a heavy. Etc. nothing fancy in them. Fuji ECS reel seats and Fuji Alconite guides. Good build quality. Quality blanks. About average on quality vs price.

I’d give them a “B+” across the board. They are very similar, IMO, to a Falcon Cara.

Decent rods, fairly sensitive. I've never broken one setting the hook. I still have a couple for back up but have gone to Kistler Helium rods and love them.

Dont have experience with $250+/Higher end rods and not lucky enough to get to fish back to back to back 14 hour days often so cant really speak on this. I drag a craw a lot.....and have used it back to back 14 hour days and felt no extra fatigue because of it. Im sure there might be lighter but I feel its well balanced so that probably helps
