I got the 11-ft PRESF1530311.
On the second surf trip the rod broke at the reel seat while using 4oz weight and cut mullet.
Poor quality rod and woud not trust Peen brand any more. I have never had a rod break just from casting.

I bought a 10 foot and 11 foot Penn Prevail surf casting rods. I casted the 10 footer and the end fell out of the ferule on the windup and line snapped. Needless to say the end fell in the surf and got washed out to sea. The 11 footer worked like a champ so maybe I had a lemon 10 footer. Needless to say it got sent back and I will not get another Penn rod.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pokerweasel Price per Pound, its a knockout!!
I matched the 9' model with a Penn Spinfisher V 5500 on 30lb braid.
The rod is light with a ton of backbone, yet sensitive. I can cast close to 70yds with a 3oz weight; with 4oz, I can get around 90yds. First time out to the beach, I caught red drum, sheepshead, croaker, and speckle trout with ease. I can't wait to hook up on a big fish to see what this rod can handle.
