Rated 2 out of 5 by Fendermaster from GREAT ROD, TERRIBLE GUIDES! Rod is nice. Cast well, and has nice balance. Line guides are just terrible. They are very fragile. Had one break the third time out. Penn says it is not covered under warranty. They would be glad to sell me a new one though. Read the reviews and do a little research before you buy. I am not the only one with this problem. Very disappointing. I expected more for a company of this stature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by so ho from great rod can't beat the price very light easy to casts a mile. i have the 10ft paired with daiwa mag st for bay fishing. i'm impressed with how affordable this rod is. guides don't break for no reason. ceramic guides break easily when its not cared for bottom line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HunterWilliams from Great Rod! I bought this for my Diawa Seagate and it is perfect for cobia on the pier and sharks in the surf.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dustin young from great for cats I fish with these rods in ohio and all i can say is dont let this rod fool its got great backbone and feel to it .......really think that the reel should set back more towards the rear ...its sets @ 27" from the one i got ......strongly feel it should be a round the 18 to 20 ....but still by far they a great rods for big shovels and blues

Rated 5 out of 5 by Trainman327 from Great rod for a great price This rod is my first conventional surf rod. I have used bait casting setups in fresh water for decades and have been using spinning equipment in the surf since childhood. But I have not used them for long distance casting in the surf. Foolish on my part! The Penn Prevail 12’ Heavy Surf Casting Rod (PRESF2040C12) was a great first casting rod to cut my teeth on. I have it matched with a Penn Squall Penn Squall SQL15. I have now used it on several surf fishing trips and this rod does great. I was casting 5 oz. weights with large pieces of cut bait, maybe 7 to 8 oz. total weight with no trouble. I can now cast further than I was ever able to with spinning equipment. In fact I’m getting the entire 190 yards of 20 lb. test off the reel and will be switching to braid next season. I have caught only one fish large enough to feel the rod was challenged, a large sting ray, and it handled that fine. Only time will tell if it can handle the stress of heavier challenges but for now I am very pleased with this purchase.
