The Rod 

A perfect slider rod from PENN. PENN’s RCB2 construction consists of a rolled composite core and outer layers of longitudinal glass to provide a lightweight, thin, and parabolic blank that flexes from grip to tip, distributing weight for extra durability. Tangle-Free Fuji K guides with Alconite inserts, Fuji reel seats, and tapered EVA grips pair for a technical, sensitive, and premium setup. These parabolic blanks offer sought-after durability, balance, and recoil anglers need to work jigs from nearshore bays & sounds to offshore wrecks and bottom structures.
