Rated 5 out of 5 by OCSharker A Great rod for even the biggest game I got the 20-50 lb mariner a year ago for land based shark fishing. I use it with my Penn senator 6/0 spooled with 50 lb mono. With it I’ve landed 8 sharks; mostly 3-4 foot duskies, but one was a 6 foot dusky and another was a 6 foot sandbar shark, one stingray; a roughtail estimated at 250 lbs, one tarpon; which was 6 foot on the dot and roughly 100 lbs. This rod is sensitive enough to detect light bites, yet heavy enough to stand up to a 250lb stingray for a 1.5 hour fight. Since it doesn’t have roller guides it’s extremely reliable on the beach and even after a year of wear and tear and big fish, it still looks and feels brand new. A great rod and I’ll be getting another one soon for my 12/0 senator. January 19, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by JONEZY74 GOOD REEL THIS IS A GOOD HEAVY REEL. LOVE THE LOOK OF IT. CAUGHT A 13LB CAT WITH IT HAD NO PROBLEMS.AFTER I GOT THE REEL BACK HOME I FOUND THAT THE EYES WERE NOT STRAIGHT. I THOUGHT THAT WITH PENN QUALITY WOULD BE A LITTLE BETTER. December 20, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by markemark1 Great rod for my Wife! She's only used it on one 12 hour trip but it was a great rod for her! The shorter butt made reeling Red Snapper easy for her. I bought her a longer rod for the last trip but she really struggled with it. We will use this boat rod for years to come. Well made, great rod! July 28, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Okinawashi Good Value I landed a 400 lb Marlin with this rod. The reel gimbal did slip and I had to replace the rod, but nonetheless, I landed the beast. The rod handles many a wahoo, dorado and tuna, but the marlin did it in. Matched with a Penn 30 VSW and 750 yards of Powerpro proves to be a match for everything except Marlin. Great standup rod for the money. July 19, 2011

A:Yes. I've caught 6 foot sharks and tarpon from the beach with this rod and it performs flawlessly. Even when used with a belt and harness. Since it doesn't have roller guides, there's less to break and rust from the extra abuse of a pier. A word of advice though; I would use heavier line than you normally would when fishing from a pier since big fish love to go between the pilings and saw you off.
A:Probably too short for a pier rod...it's made for boats and straight drops down.
