In 1979, Frank Mundus used a rod and reel to catch a 1,080-pound Mako shark, inspiring Robert Shaw’s character in the film Jaws. Landing a fish of that size and caliber isn’t accomplished on your average combo. You need a tough, flexible, strong sea fishing rod capable of withstanding the wrath of the half-ton fish that just might be on the other end. PENN® Fishing Rods have long since dominated the market, creating a match made in earthly heaven with the world-renowned Fishing Reels that established our core competency. Known for groundbreaking Saltwater Fishing Reel manufacturing, our work is not complete without the optimum total set up. With this new generation of strong, lightweight Fishing Rods, our reels meet their best companions, allowing saltwater anglers the privilege of long, confident casting, heavy bait jigging, and the backbone to haul in the ultimate beast.


What makes PENN® sea fishing rods truly Impressive? Power. Used by Fleet Captains around the world, the sea fishing rods of PENN are the number one choice to reel in the biggest fish of the sea. Chasing the biggest Halibut? The Penn Regiment II Helibut is a new generation of light, but powerful sea rods.

The new SLS3 blanks of the Penn Regiment II Tuna will ensure you to take off the pressure of big tuna. And for the ultimate performance, the Battalion Trolling contains a special blend of high performance carbon, producing an exceptionally lightweight, powerful, slim diameter blank and still giving enough strength when fighting fish.
