Penn Tuna Stick rod is popular among the anglers who go on frequent fishing trips and appreciate quality rod components. It is a one-piece rod and consists of a tubular fiberglass blank. Its length is 5.6 inches and has a line that offers to bear the weights between 60 to 80 pounds. As the rod tapers and nears the tip, the hollow tubular section joins with the fiberglass blank to give it a sold finish. The Penn rod is made using Stuart aluminum rod butts and reel seats that are locked in a way that they stay in place firmly even if a large amount of pressure is applied. Most rod butts are placed in a split grip design that serves as a lower handle for anglers while also being an upper handle.
The Penn Tuna Stick is a moderate-fats action rod and has immense power. It uses 6 Aftco roller guides that are extremely effective in eliminating line friction when pulling out with force. This enables you to catch fish that reach high velocities and prevents them from causing your fishing line from snapping. Its solid tip construction is great for setting up a hook but not the best for casting distance or accuracy. Penn Tuna Stick rod has a padded EVA fore grip that is placed where an angler reaches back and holds on for control when catching a powerful tuna. The EVA serves as a protection by keeping your hands from slipping or bruising and instead offers comfort for long casting spells. Another notable feature is that the lower section of the rod holder has a grip tape and aluminum gimbals that come with a cover. This helps to protect anglers from having the rod holder pinned down their arm when they are struggling to catch the fish.
Despite the impressive features, Penn fishing rod is not for everyone. It is a less effective fishing gear to have if you don’t usually fish for larger species or if you want to cover long distances. Many anglers have expressed how these rods cannot be trusted for long-term durability or their casting ability. But if you are an amateur angler aiming to catch large tuna and are looking for affordable options, Penn Tuna Stick is a great rod and its engineering will not disappoint you. It comes with a 1-year warranty that allows you to return your rod or get it repaired free of cost during that year.
