Great rod for the money. Pairs up great with my Slammer 5500. This combo will be on board for some light offshore work as well this season.

Awesome fishing rod. I bought it to pair with a Penn FTH60LD2 with an 80lb line. I love this combo, it has become my favorite. I use it for trolling and bottom fishing.

Wanted a Terez but they were out of stock. Purchased the carnage because I needed something strong and light. It’s not as light as the Terez but it has been just as tough.

Carnage boat rod
August 7, 2019
Purchased 3 total to match with spinfisher vi 8500ll and at first it felt great. On the water first trip to go Red snapper fishing one of the two broke on first retrieval of a 2oz sinker. Tackle direct quickly replaced it. Second trip with one of the original rods not yet used fishing in Florida keys yellowtail snapper fishing the second broke 6 eyes back on a 3lb gray snapper. I am afraid to fish the third rod as I have lost faith. Each brake I went to Walmart and got s uglestick big water a similar rod for 40.00 and never a issue even on a 175lb nurse shark.
ProsFeels good looks good
ConsCant fish with it

Carnage II jigging 7’6” MH
July 28, 2019
Great rod and even better customer service! I originally ordered the 7’ Carnage II boat rod, that was on order from another distributor. I then saw the Carnage II jigging rod was in stock. One call and my order was changed, and shipped the next day. The Penn Carnage II jigging 7’6” MH rod is amazing. It’s lightweight and incredibly strong. I paired mine with a Penn Slammer III 7500, and have no problem pulling in snapper, grouper, cobia, AJ, and blackfin. You can buy with confidence when buying from TackleDirect, and I will definitely do business with them again!
ProsLight weight, strong, comfortable, aluminum gimbal, aluminum rod seat.

Tackle Direct is GREAT!

Ordered my Penn carnage 2 boat (Heavy) spinning rod to go with my Penn 10500 slammer 3 spinning reel! I had looked at other fishing rods but the carnage 2 just caught my eye the way it was made and the finish on it plus it had great reviews about how it could handle large fish with ease! I have always bought cheaper rods but wanted something that would be a perfect match for this reel! This rod is the perfect match! So glad I went this route! This rod wasn't cheap but you have to have good equipment when fishing for big fish! If you go out fishing and your equipment fails then it just ruins your day! The build quality of this rod is very nice! I have not actually used it yet but I am very confident that this rod will fulfill my expectations and won't give me any problems with anything breaking etc.The people at Tackle Direct were very professional and when I received my new Penn rod it was shipped to me in a heavy shipping tube and the rod was bubble wrapped inside! There is no way this could have been damaged during shipping unless it was ran over by a forklift! Packaged very nice! When I got it I took it outside and inspected it for damage and it was Perfect! No damage whatsoever! This is the first time I have ordered a fishing rod and if I order one again I will go through Tackle Direct! They were Quick on their shipping too! And it was Free! Thank you Tackle Direct for a Great buying experience!

I have this paired up with a clash 8500 and 80lb power pro. It’s an excellent combo. Extremely well made with the double aluminum nut ( I do have to adjust the tightness some times...). The grip is easy to hang on to as well and very durable. I have pulled up some large fish with ease and had no problem at all. Haven’t reeled in anything over 40lbs on it yet though... I hope to have the same results when I do
ProsGreat quality and good for jigging/trolling
ConsNot great for casting due to the fast action and short length.

This rod is a work horse. Paired it with a slammer 6500. You can do pretty match anything you want with this rod. Love the grip on it also.
Another outstanding Penn product

I was impressed with Penn's Carnage line of jigging rods so I picked up a few of these as well. Excellent quality at a reasonable price. Highly recommended.
