The Carnage™ II Surf Casting Rod is the new generation of light but powerful saltwater fishing rods from PENN®. Carnage II Surf Spinning rods are built with Fuji K guides with Alconite inserts specifically for fishing with braided line. SLS3 composite rod blanks enable PENN to make a thinner, lighter rod that still takes the extra strain of big hard fighting fish. A rubber butt enhances fishing comfort. A Fuji graphite reel seat keeps reel firmly secured. Long, non-slip, rubber shrink-wrap grips provide extra leverage for battling fish and enhance your ability to fling baits way out there past the breakers.
