PENN® Fishing Rods for A New Generation of Saltwater Fishing

In 1979, Frank Mundus used rod and reel to catch a 1,080-pound Mako shark, inspiring Robert Shaw’s character in the film Jaws. Landing a fish of that size and caliber isn’t accomplished on your average combo. You need a tough, flexible, strong rod capable of withstanding the wrath of the half-ton fish that just might be on the other end.

PENN® Fishing Rods have long since dominated the market, creating a match made in earthly heaven with the world-renowned Fishing Reels that established our core competency. Known for groundbreaking Saltwater Fishing Reel manufacturing, our work is not complete without the optimum total set up. With this new generation of strong, lightweight Fishing Rods, our reels meet their best companions, allowing saltwater anglers the privilege of long, confident casting, heavy bait jigging, and the backbone to haul in the ultimate beast.

Fishing Rods for Deep Drops & Long Battles

What makes PENN® rods truly impressive? Power. Used by PENN® Fleet Captains around the world, Captain Russell Kleppinger gears up for battle with a PENN® Fathom® Lever Drag 2 Speed in a 30 size and a matching Carnage™ II Boat Rod while targeting big tarpon in deep water. And, to beat one of the toughest sportfish, PENN® developed the Battalion™ II Surf ULUA rod, which features tough but sensitive Graphite Composite Blanks and Caxin Indestructible Guides that can withstand relentless brawls.

PENN® Rods Get You Geared Up for Saltwater Fishing Battle

Go-to gear for the most aggressive anglers, PENN® Saltwater Fishing Rods represent a new generation of fishing rod when you’re wading or throwing topwater walking lures, casting from a kayak, or fishing deep water. Inshore and offshore applications, casting, spinning, and surf fishing, our line of Fishing Rods withstand the pressure and get the job done.

Consider the super light and powerful Carnage™ Surf Conventional ULUA, with its 100% graphite blank for incredible strength, or the one-piece tubular glass blank of the International® VI Boat Conventional that allows for a slingshot cast. Experience the quality components of select Fishing Rod models such as the Fuji® Deep Press Silicon Nitride Guides, or the aluminum gimbal, made to withstand the gamefish’s punishment. Anglers of all levels can enjoy a fishing rod with the sensitivity to bring up shallow water lurkers and engineered to bring the power for slow pitch jigging, deep drops, and long battles. Don’t be surprised if you need a bigger boat.
