Great Rod

I received my 11ft surf battalion spinning rod within a week from ordering, maybe even within 5 days. It came fairly quick.

The handle grip is really nice, and the eyes were not Damaged in transit. It was packaged really well when it was shipped to me. I paired this rod with the daiwa BG 5000 that I ordered at the same time and I’ll tell ya, this combo FLYS when casting. Incredible cast distance.
ProsGrip of handle Smoothness of rod The design Packaging when shipped is great 2 piece rod Not too heavy Very sturdy/strong
ConsNone so far

This site - Tackle Direct- is a great organization. I was in their beautiful NJ shop recently, and the people are top notch. I used the rod for the first time along the jetty at Brigantine- it cast very well - and good feel while the blue was chewing on my plastic sandeel. Just below the hook. I felt every chomp. I haven't landed a fish yet, but I'm really happy with this rod.

I bought the 12' Penn Battalion to pair with my Van Staal VS300 and this rod is amazing I use it for throwing big chunks of bunker with 4-8oz of lead it has a lot of power and I defiantly recommend it for people that are on a budget or don't want to spend a lot because you can't beat the price.
ProsVery light yet has power behind it and the price is amazing.

nice sensitivity for a $100 2 piece rod. Will make catching schoolies a blast, but will also give you the power to bring in a keeper.

11' 2-6 oz model
October 28, 2017
Bought this to throw some lighter weights when fishing bait and throwing some heavier plugs. Bite detection is great and can sense every little bump, bounce and pull whether fish or bottom so its very easy to get a sense of what the structure is like. Loads well and casts great, but has plenty of backbone. Sweet spot is around 4 1/2 ounces and can cast 1 and 5 oumces pretty well too.Very happy with my purchase amd recommemd to anyone.
ProsLight, sensative, great bite detection easy to load

Great Lightweight Surf Rod
October 15, 2017
I ordered the 1220S10 model with a 3/4 - 3 oz rating and it is absolutley perfect. I paried it with a Spinfisher 7500 LC and it is perfect for throwing light baits a long way. It is light enough to feel small bites from whting and pompano, but does have enough backbone to handle a red or shark. I gave this item 4 stars because it does not have a hook keeper on my model. However this only a slight inconvience on an otherwise perfect lightweight surf rod

Perfect beginner rod for a bait chucker

Bought the 12 ft, 6 to 12 oz casting version to use during drum season and it performed very well. Some people do not like the way it loads, but it seems to work well with me. I had no issuing reaching the areas that I needed for a big NC drum. The first day I took it out, I landed a nice 40" drum (baby in my eyes) and it handled it with no issue. It is also very light which is a good thing to have if you are changing bait non stop.
ProsGreat color scheme (matches my Daiwa Saltist BG30H) Loads 8 oz and spot head with no issue Lightweight Good drum rod
ConsDepending on how you load your rods, this one may not be for you. Cast it first before buying.

October 16, 2015
What size Battle reel would you suggest 5000 or 6000 for this rod. I will be throwing cut bait with 4oz weight ocassionally a large bucktail on 30lb braid. im looking for a rod that would handle a large fish but would still get a good fight out of a 2 or 3 pound blue fish my current rods are heavy and extra heavy action. thanks
1 Answer
It depends on your preference, the 6000 is a little heavier weight wise than the 5000, but both would fit well on that surf rod. So, really it comes down to if you would want the faster reel of the two. The 6000 has a much faster retrieval than the 5000 does at 41inches per crank, where the 5000 is 36inches per crank. I personally, with my own preferences, would go with the 5000 because it is the lighter of the two in weight. But, if you would prefer a fast reel no matter the weight than you should choose the 6000. Basically, you need to ask yourself which is more important to you, retrieval speed or physical weight?

Would the Spinfisher 6500LL be a suitable choice for surf fishing with this rod in and around Destin FL.?
1 Answer
Yes, that rod and reel combo would fit each other well. Would be great for surf fishing and bottom fishing with bait. Also, that combo would be able to handle some larger fish.
