Penn Carnage II Jigging Rods are designed to accommodate the compact reels that anglers use to achieve greater drag pressures with braided lines. Penn Carnage II Jigging Rods are incredibly pleasant rods to fish with as they are lighter, use top of the line components, and have slower actions than comparable rods.
  • SLS3 blank construction
  • Fuji K guides with Alconite inserts

Excellent upgrade over previous Penn jigging rods. Components, balance, and “feel†are all top-notch. Have fished this rod with a Torque 25NLD2 and 15XNLD2 jigging big bottom fish and west coast yellowtail, and with 12 and 15 sized star drags with live bait for yellowfin and bluefin tuna to 50lbs without problem. Would love to see the same blank technology used On some longer rods (8ft, please).

the day this rod arrived I paired with a Penn slammer 3 10500 with Sufix 832 80 lb braid. I went to Honey park in Thunderbolt Georgia. After about an hour I caught a Sting ray that had to weigh 30 pounds this pole had no problem with the weight. I will be buying another one

The old Bluewater Carnage series were excellent rods but these new versions with aluminum Pacbay reel seats and bumpy foregrips are even better. I paired the heaviest (80-200) spin model with a Torque-9 with 100# spectra for large tuna.

Haven't had a chance to use this yet. But, I can say that it pairs up with my Penn Slammer III 10500 beautifully. It is a very light weight, sturdy rod. Can't wait to jig with it!

Is the picture acurate with the description of the rod, reason i ask is because it shows a trigger under reel seat but the description states it's a jigging/spinning?

Hi, would the Fin-Nor Lethal 100 pair well with the 6 ft heavy jigging rod?  If not, what do you recommend? Halibut, lingcod, and rockfish mostly.  Thx!
