Great pole!
80 - 130 is what i use on my current sharking pole. Hasn't let me down yet, and I've tangled with 600 lb sharks with this pole. . Well worth the investment into one of these beauties.
ProsStrong. Good looking. Able to handle pretty much whatever you throw at it and still keep going.

Penn VS3080ARA60 International V ARA Stand-up Rod
Well made rod with excellent guide and butt hardware. Great backbone and action to apply the needed pressure to land the big ones. Great price compared to other manufacturers. I will be buying this again.

I have two shimano tiagra reels 30wlrsa and two penn international 50vsx and would like to match them with an appropriate rod. Which rod would work best for each type of reel? A big plus if the bottom part of the rods can be detached. Thanks
1 Answer
For the 50VSX reels, go with the VS8013AWA60 (PEN-0805). It is 6', 80-130# line and has a detachable straight butt. For the Tiagra 30's, we don't have anything with a detachable butt. We suggest going with either VS5010AWA60 (PEN-0312) or the TLC59XHRSBLA (SHM-2662). The Shimano is a Tallus 5'9" XH, 40-60# line, with roller and stripper guides.
