Penn Carnage II Surf Rods are designed to accommodate the compact reels that anglers use to achieve greater drag pressures with braided lines. Penn Carnage II Surf 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

This review is for the the Carnage II 10ft 1-5. It’s an excellent rod that does very well within its range. This is my 3rd Carnage II. The finish on this rod is superb and it’s strength and sensitivity is on par with rods double the price. This particular rod is great for plugs or a light weight and chunk.

Great price with Tackle Direct's 20% off discount coupon. Rod appears to be well made with good Fuji components. Light weight. Can't comment on casting as its winter time and I've not had a chance to use it.
ConsHandle length is 4" longer than my personal preference

I bought 2 of these 10' casting rods & paired them with Avet SX MC reels. This is a great setup. The tip is sensitive for good bite indication. I don't normally need to cast too far, but once I had got the reel set right I can get a 3oz lead over the 100yd mark with relative ease.

Amazing Surf Rod
August 8, 2017
I bought the 9ft 15-30lb line class. I can cast a mile with this rod. I haven't caught anything with it yet. I was hoping to use it for catching reds and drum in the surf but I have come up empty so far. The rod is amazing quality and 10x better than the prevail. They are powerful, im sure i could catch a 5ft shark on it as well with ease.
ProsLIght Weight Quality Craftsmanship
ConsWhen you break it down into 2 pieces, I cant put the top piece in my beach cart, the guide stops it from going through the hole.

Great rod
September 18, 2016
Just received this rod from Tackle Direct. usually when you buy rods, they are packed loosely in an oversized box. but these cams very well packed in a hard cardboard tube/bubble wrap. the rod itself has fantastic quality.
Build quality is awesome. very comfortable EVA grips and most of all, very light weight compared too my Okuma Longitude. When I was looking to upgrade my rod, I was looking for something that had a decent
price,good quality materials used (K-guides included which is a plus),good sensitivity and light weight. the Carnage 2 satisfies all these requirements. would recommend this rod to anyone.
Proslight weight. exceptional build quality. K frame guides. sensitive & nice ergonomic grips.
Conswould be nice if the cost was under $200

Hi, would this rod (12' Carnage 30 - 65 lb) be a good match with a Penn Slammer 7500? I want to use 30 lb mono line on it and to be casting a 4 - 5 oz sinker. I want it more for fighting big fish than long distance casting. Cheers
1 Answer
I would recommend the 6500 Slammer for better balance between the rod and reel. I would also recommend using 65 lb power pro braided line for a overall better fishing experience.
