The PENN Squall II rods is a rod range that has been designed to cover all drifting and trolling styles from the boat, matching perfectly with the PENN Squall II reels. The rods are constructed with a one-piece tubular glass blank and a solid tip to help prevent breakage. The heavy duty 3-leg stainless steel SeaGuide guides with aluminum oxide are extremely tough and will ensure you of a perfect line management during the fight of even the biggest bluefin tuna. For added comfort, the Squall II Boat rods feature the Triangular-shaped EVA foregrip to reduce rod rotation while under pressure. Heavy duty graphite (on 20-50lb model) and machined aluminum reel seats (other models) keep a secure grip on the reel, while the gimbal provides added strength and a secure connection during the fight. The slick butt prevents the rod butt getting damaged in the rod holder, while the bent-butt models have a short aluminum bent butt, making them also very suitable for fighting a big fish stand-up.
