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!
good for beginners
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.
good ergonomics, quality components.
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.

Would have preferred larger ine guides
