good rod for beginner drum fishing
November 5, 2015
I haven't been casting long less then a year and i am heaving a 12 foot torque with a Daiwa Sealine and i am reaching 70 yards. I like the rod but i wish it was a little stiffer and on the pier i fish i saw a big red fish hit one and when he set the hook the rod snapped. It was an old rod but the one i have flexes in the wind and i hooked in to a big sand tiger and the rod tip was touching the rail but all around it is a good rod for kids and beginners. the setup i run is a good one but if you get it tighten the barrings. and be careful throwing 10 oz!
Pros:
good for beginners
Cons:
in very stiff

10 foot casting.
December 18, 2013
well balanced surf rod with quality components. the rating is 1-4 and the sweet spot is right around 4 oz for my style of casting using a 20 size reel. haven't caught anything huge with it yet but the action is nice and smooth with a great backbone.
Pros:
good ergonomics, quality components.
Cons:
can be a little stiff with weights less than 3 oz

12 footer
July 30, 2012
Bought this rod about three weeks ago from Tackle Direct. I was looking for a 12 footer to toss 8nbait and this rod fits the bill. I was tossing 6 ounces of lead and pnut bunker this past weekend during the storms close to 200 feet, which was too far, fish where in close. I also wouldn't hesitate to use 8 ounces either if need be. Landed a 37", 20 pound Striper with ease. Rod could be a little more sensitive, I couldn't feel the hit from a small sea bass I managed to catch, but you also don't need or use any 12' rod to catch them either. Rod is strong and casts well to.

Great Penn Quality / Small Line Guides
May 28, 2012
I use the 11 foot model for its primary purpose, surf fishing (and when appropraite, pier fishing). The rod is very nice and I like it's design, balance, and quality construction. I have it matched with a Penn Fathom 25N and found that this combination performs best with braided or smaller diameter copolymer lines. I can tell you that the rod does not cast very far with larger diameter, semi-stiff lines such as Ande 20 lb. test due to the smaller, but top quality line guides. I am not a fan of braided lines but I tried it the first time I spooled my reel. Eventhough I could cast almost twice as far with braid, after my first bird's nest (aka professional override), I abruptly removed it. Of course the rod was not at fault; casting a 25N is very tricky, as it highly sensitive due to its freespool design--but I love it!!! I have other 10 - 12 foot surf casting rods that casts farther but I love the feel and backbone of the Penn when handling larger fish--excellent leverage and power. Lastly, my line of choice for this particular rod is P-Line floroclear 20 lb. test copolymer. Overall, this rod / line combination casts far enough to suit my needs; therefore, I don't have any issues or concerns with the smaller guides.
Pros:
Quality construction Power (backbone) Design Balance during casting
Cons:
Would have preferred larger ine guides
