Borrowed from a legendary Penn namesake, Penn Senator? rods were designed to be as durable and rugged as the reels they are intended to match. Built on one-piece tubular glass blanks with a solid tip, they carry chrome intermediate guides and AFTCO? Roller Stripper and Roller Tip rings, a machined aluminium reel seat, EVA fore grip, slick butt, and an aluminium gimbal with protective cover. Senator? rods are an economically priced version of the full roller guided rods.
