Tried this rod. 1st attempt at a bait caster for the surf--rod. A friend has the expensive spread rod & Abu tricked out reel. I matched this rod with an Ikios reel & the rod cast very, very well. My friend casted the combo farther than with his much more expensive set up. The rod is great quality. Time will tell if it holds up, but I think it will. Very pleased with this purchase!

I use the 11 foot model for Texas Gulf coast fishing. I really like the feel, balance, and quality construction of this rod compared to some others I own. I have the rod matched with a Penn Fathom 25N and found that this combination performs best with braided lines due to the small (top quality) line guides. I am not a fan of braided lines at all, however, I spooled the reel with some the first time I used the setup. After the first bird's nest, I abruptly removed the braid and replaced it with a quality 20 lb. test copolymer line. The copolymer line doesn’t cast as far but it performs just fine for my needs. I use a 50 lb. test braid shock leader with a 3 - 4 oz weights and I’m getting a reasonable distance of about 100 – 120 yards. I have other 10 - 12 foot surf casting rods that casts farther but I love the feel and backbone of the Penn rod. I’ve only caught one decent size fish with the setup so far, a 6 - 7 pound gafftop sail catfish (very powerful, fun fish to catch). The thing is, I hardly felt any resistance while reeling it in--the rod barely flexed at all. I think this says a lot about the power and backbone of this rod and reel combination. Overall, the Penn 11 foot Torque rod and 25N with copolymer line will serve as my go-to setup whenever the bite is on.
