good intermediate pole
January 5, 2014
Not used it yet but looks like it can handle more than its rating. I like the rollers on beginning and end of the pole. Should work good with a 30

i am looking for a rod for a Penn 50 wide for wahoo trolling.  is this a suitable rod?
1 Answer
If you can still find a 30-80 or 50-100 model they would make for a great wahoo rod. These have not been in production for some time now, link below to their replacements which are built in the USA now:
