Shipping runs $20 for rods, up to 8 feet in length within
Most orders over $150 are shipped
FREE!* Orders less than $150 are billed for shipping. Rods, given their
extra length, will have an added cost of $20
- this is a change for 2016 due to increased
shipping charges from FedEx and UPS, packaging
costs also increased this year for longer boxes.
Upon placing your order you'll receive an
immediate confirmation via email. You are not billed at that time, the
confirming email may not reflect oversize or
overweight charges or other issues requiring
direct contact. We process
orders manually, preferring to have a human
actually check things over and contact you
should there be questions. Within 24
hours of placing your order you will receive a
follow-up email confirmation and final invoice (pdf doc) reflecting your total charges
(Monday-Friday). You are not billed until we actually send you your final invoice.
Orders shipped to CA addresses will have California Sales Taxes applied, out
of state orders are tax free. During the
ordering process you can select expedited
shipping if required.
(Within the USA
we usually ship via Federal Express ground. International,
and oversize/weight items will be billed for
shipping and you will be sent an emailed invoice reflecting total charges
prior to actual billing. We will not ship
without you having had a chance to review the
invoice). Hawaii and Alaska shipping will be
accomplished using USPS Priority service, and
our standard shipping cost policy will apply
unless the item ordered does not fit in their
standard size boxes. If additional shipping fees
are required we will contact you.)
Penn Carnage and Torque Series rods
represent an excellent balance between expense
and performance. They are well built rods
featuring very good components, produced
overseas in Penn's plant. They are made from
Graphite, so they are light in weight, but they
are also strong and confidence inspiring.
We feature three styles of rods on this page,
Penn's Carnage Jigging Series, the Carnage
Bluewater boat rods for casting duty and Penn's
Torque Surf Series rods. There are no better
rods on the market in their price range, and
that price range is most aggressive. So, the
value is exceptionally strong.
In July 2015 Penn announced
changes to the Carnage series rods. We are in
the evaluation stage of the new line at present
and may add them to our mix should they offer
performance/value which meets our expectation.
In general, we are not jumping up and down over
any reel manufacturers rods. The best rods are
made by firms specializing in rod building, and
for reel companies offering rods it is an
afterthought. However, if the value is high,
warranty strong and quality good, then there can
be a reason for us to inventory and stock such a
product line for our clients. That's what we're
evaluating at present. 4/10/16.
WHAT'S NEW FROM PENN?
Penn Bluewater Carnage Jigging Series The
Carnage Jigging rods take off where their old
Torque Jigging rods left off. These are a second
generation production with improved actions and
designs. But, the value is still astounding
strong, especially so given the components used
and the blank designs.
Bluewater Carnage Casting Rods
These are a value and feature
laden series of rods incorporating current
design standards of excellence. Like the Jigging
rods above, these rods are made to maximize the
benefits of Spectra (braid) lines. They are
light, sensitive fishing instruments made to be
fished hard for many years to come. There's no
better value rod on the market today.
Penn Torque Surf Series There are few more enjoyable ways to
spend time at the beach than surf fishing.
Relaxing, plenty of action from a wide variety
of fish, from small perch to larger sharks, surf
fishing has something for everyone, and it's no
doubt the least expensive way to enjoy a day's
fishing. No fuel expense, and better yet, no
boat cleaning or maintenance required! And, on a
nice warm day, the sightseeing can be pretty
darn sweet as well. Here at our Huntington Beach
shop we have a couple guys that make it a point
to go out for a couple hours prior to coming
into work. If you are ever by our Huntington
Beach shop or call in, speak to Blake or Beta
and pick their brains or share you own tales.
Some changes coming here, this series is
discontinued, new models arriving now...
Two new items from us, not necessarily
the most creative or revolutionary products we've ever come
up with, but nonetheless they are useful and they are a bit
different than what's available from others.
Our RodWraps are an upgrade from the
StickJackets we've carried for several years. We've made
ours a bit larger in
diameter so that they will accommodate larger saltwater
guides, even larger spinning guides. The StickJackets were
really made for freshwater use, sized accordingly but we
used their spinning models for our application. Now we've
got 'em made our way. We've reinforced the
top with a leatherette end piece and metal grommet which can
be used to hang rods, and we've increased the diameter to
allow your rods, even those using larger AFTCO wind-on
roller guides or larger size spinning guides to fit. The
Wraps are about 5 feet in length, will extend down the rod
into the handle material of most rods. They are not made to
cover the entire rod, only that portion it's designed to
protect - the blank, the finish, the guides.
wraps are all that I've been using now for the past few
years. I like the fact that I can use them for storage
protection, travel protection as well as leave 'em on my
rods on the boat. They are breathable and they don't absorb
moisture. So, they help me protect my rods when they're
bundled up once the fishing is over. On most long range
trips out of San Diego, you move your rods onto the boat and
off the boat all bundled up. They may stay that way
overnight on the boat as well. For a cloth sock, that's no
good. So, you can write off any protection of the rod. With
these things you do get that protection when you need it
most. I even leave them on my rods when I get home. I'll
spray off the rod wraps while still on the rod, loosening
any accumulated saltwater in the process. Then I'll take off
the wraps, clean the rods more thoroughly and allow them to
dry. Use of a cleaner like Penn's Rod and Reel cleaner for
that, and you've got things in great shape for your next
trip and your gear will stay in new condition. The
Wraps are 5 feet in length.
The other product we have for rod
organization are our CharkWraps. These are great for
bundling your rods together for transport or storage. You
can secure up to a half dozen rods with these things. Nice
thing about ours verses some others, they are made from a
softer foam/rubber material so they'll never scratch up your
rods. Unlike some similar products I've seen, we made it a
point to include three different sizes (which makes sense
since you'll use all three at different positions on your
bundled rods from the tip to near the reel seat). So, you
get three straps, all with Velcro through their length to
handle most any size bundle of rods you'll be totting, from
2 to 6 or more rods.
