Offshore Angler Inshore Extreme Spinning Rods
The Strongest Saltwater Spinning Rod
I use the INXS71222 model to fish during my travels worldwide. I have three of them.
I have caught a 60lbs Yellowfin Tuna, a 70lbs Cubera Snapper (the strongest fighting inshore fish after the Giant Trevally) and several Mekhong Giant Catfish between 40 and 80lbs on it. The Mekhong Giant Catfish is a VERY strong freshwater fighter (it fights like a tuna), and it is known to be a rod breaker (check some videos on YouTube).
Charter crew or fishing guides have made fun of me using this rod, as it looks like a "bass rod" not born for such heavy duty applications, but they learnt to respect it on the field. This rod is unbreakable.
I highly recommend it for heavy duty applications, as well as a travel rod.

Nice Inshore Rod
I purchased this rod to go along with my Penn Spinfisher reel that I also bought at Bass Pros Shops Myrtle beach location. The rod is well made and I have plans to use it for Bluefish Spanish and Reds along with any other species that would like to be caught.
I needed a 2 piece for traveling and this rod fits the bill perfect. Lots of backbone and will cast the extra weight lures needed to be used in heavy surf and higher winds.

another great rod (6'6" med)
this is my 3rd OA rod and i really like em. great rods for the price. this thing is ridiculously light and balances great with my ssv3500. i'm not a super huge fan of the style guides these use, but they're fujj so i'll give em the benefit of the doubt. great setup for what i was looking for.

Need more info
I was wondering if this rod will accept a Penn Battle BTL6000?
When I got the rod home I discovered that it would not accept the Penn Battle BTL8000 that I have on another rod.
The rod guides seem narrow and the reel seat does not seem long enough to accept a large reel.
