Penn Senator® rods are truly solid performers, each featuring the unsurpassed strength and power of solid yet lightweight fiberglass construction. Wherever tough gamefish are the Penn Senator® ocean trolling and bottom fishing rods can help you land them. One piece, blank through butt construction makes these rods practically indestructible. Lightweight solid fiberglass blanks deliver the action and lifting power to beat big, powerful fish without wearing out the angler.

A $7.00 oversize packaging charge may apply to these items as they ship in a long heavy duty tube to protect your items. This fee will still apply when discount shipping coupons are used.
Penn Senator® Rods Key Features
  • Durable solid fiberglass blank construction
  • Blank through butt technology for added strength
  • Heavy duty anodized aluminum reel seat
  • 2 style of guides (Special Senator feature AFTCO Roller Guides & Tip Top; Senator feature Stuart Guides and Tip Top)
Penn Special Senator® Rods
Special Senator® Rods offer anglers quality components like full AFTCO® guides and Penn's IST rod blank technology for improved durability and reduced weight compared to solid glass rod blanks. Utilizing Penn's Slick Butt® for durability and reliability, Special Senator® Rods are favorites of charterboat captains. With a machined, aluminum reel seat and metal gimbal, Special Senator® Rods are capable of any bluewater challenge. When matched with the Penn reel of your choice, Penn Special Senator® Rods can land just about any size fish.

Penn Senator® Rods
Penn Senator® Rods feature a tubular glass blank with Penn's Integrated Solid Tip (IST) for added durability, and a significant decrease in overall weight versus solid glass blanks. Other key features include AFTCO® Roller stripping guide and tiptop, with chromed stainless "In-Between" guides for the best combination of line-wear protection and economy. All Senator® Rods include Penn's Slick Butt® for increased durability and ease of quickly removing the rod from the rod holder under the intense pressure of a "submarining" fish.

Penn Senator® Rods also feature machined reel seats, capable of standing up to the intense pressures oversized fish can exert on tackle, and a metal gimbal for serious fishing applications. Finished in charcoal gray, Penn Senator® Rods feature a new checkered butt-wrap for improved appearance.

great trolling rod
It is a fantastic rod and definetly gives value for your money.I like the way how the tip of the rod flutters when trolling.It lets you know that the lure is intact not entangled with another lure.Buy it You will be happy with it.

Great trolling rod
I started off with one of these matched with a TLD25 for a shark rod. Ended up liking it so much I bought 3 more to use for all my trolling needs. The rods are sturdy and have a good flex to them. I like the roller tip and last guide as it gives just enough friction reduction without having to worry about a complete roller guide rod. My favorite part is the metal reel seat. Unlike some of the cheaper rods I have used with plastic reel seats this rod will definitely hold up to the abuse of catching large fish.

I have only used this rod one time so far, but paired with the penn 114h and 130lb line, its a great performer. Feels like you can bring up the ocean floor.

Good Rods
I have to say that these are nice rods with only one problem that the rings of the guides fall off. It is is not powerfully welded to the seat. I have four of these rods with different pound test and they all have the same problem. I had to re-weld the rings with brass weld but you have to watch not to heat the seat too much which is not an easy job. Other than that they are powerful rods and they look nice. The guides loose their chrome finish quickly but they still look descent. I have two of same rods with all rollers and they are awesome.
ProsPrice, power, looks

Low Price High Quality
Very good rods, capable to withstand all kinds of stress, in the car, in the boat and during the fight with the fish. Cheap, but very strong and flexible. I bought a pair of them in 2004, "just for test purposes" and I still use them today
ProsSolid operation strong and durable gimbal Good quality line guides Trully Rugged
ConsVery narrow top guide, the big swivels can not pass through

Would this be good for surf fishing for sharks?

These rods are an all around tough rod for heavy fighting and can easily handle the ware and tare.

How do I string the fishing line through the eyelets on the Penn Senator poles?
1 Answers
When rigging with the Penn Senator Trolling rods, the line has to run in between the two main rollers as it goes through each guide.
