The Carnage™ II Conventional Boat Rod is the new generation of light but powerful saltwater fishing rods from PENN®. Carnage II boat rods are built with Fuji K guides with Alconite inserts specifically for trolling with braided line. SLS3 rod blanks enable PENN to make a thinner, lighter rod that still takes the extra strain of big hard fighting fish. An aluminum gimbal provides considerable advantage in keeping the rod butt solidly planted in the fighting belt to minimize fatigue during prolonged battles. A Pac Bay non-corrosive aluminum reel seat keeps reel firmly secured without loosening when getting knocked around a boat all day on rough water. Non-slip synthetic grips hold up to long days under the sun and saltwater spray, while providing a secure grip.
