Rated 1 out of 5 by tonyfromfl unreliable and bad service Front piece broke in ferrule when I set the hook. One of the guide inserts cracked. Sent email to Penn if I could buy front piece - answer: ship us the rod along with $20 just to look at. Called Penn - can I buy a front piece - answer was NO. Penn - I'll remember that. July 13, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pryde Very Awesome! I bought two of these power stick rods that are both 12'. I combined them with the Penn 550 ssg casting reel and the power pro 50 lb test line (max 40 lb). It works GREAT. Due to its lightweight material, the power stick gives me the ability to cast nearly 115 yards using a 4-ounce sinker. This rod is excellent. June 13, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by wumailman Worth its weight in Gold I have two of these rods, an 8' and 9' that I purchased for a trip to the OBX with my wife. I got the 8' for her and I love it. It is great for throwing spoons and jigs into the surf. The 9' works great when you need just a little more reach. I want one more 8' as well as a 10', and will have before long because these are easier on the wallet than most, and in this economy that counts for a lot. I have never been disappointed with anything from Penn and this rod exceeds my expectations. May 23, 2011
Rated 3 out of 5 by RCruz Great Rod for the money I bought this rod last july and i didn't want to write a review right away. I wanted to see how long it would last. It's October now and all the guide rings are rusted, have to replace the tip, the metal part just broke off. The bottom fell off since it was just like plastic dip. I rinse the rod after each use. I own other surf rods but this one had the worst case of rust. It's an excellent rod, cast a mile, and stiff enough to flick the fish (up to 5 pounders) out of the water. Once I replace the tip, it should be back in action. If not for the rusting problem I would've given it another star. October 1, 2010

Details:Cant even find the weight on their company homepage. I'm mostly interested in the 8ft rod with the 1/2-2oz lure WT range. I want to set it up with a PENN Sargus 4000 and powerpro #20 but I was curious how much the setup weighed since I want it for tossing lures in the surf in florida.
Details:Are the 12' rods heavy or what because in the product description and the details it doesn't say how strong they are
A:they come in both spinning and casting versions.
A:it has spinning guides but it is designed to go either way i have another rod of similar style and it works fine as a casting rod I recommend if u can check it out in person before u buy to check the size of the guides if they r too big it will not work as a casting
A:The Power Stick Series Surf rods 9' feet in length or greater are two piece rods with the ferrule dividing the rod into two equal halves. They are wrapped and epoxied at the ferrule for greater strength and durability. It is a common practice to tape a surf rod ferrule with electrical tape prior to casting to offset the tremendous torque that would otherwise cause ferrule separation and rod breakage.
