As shown in the above rod table, there are two available butt options for both 80# and 130# Class rods: Straight or Bent Butt. The Straight Butt option maintains the traditional look and feel of the trolling rod, while the Bent Butt option lowers the reel relative to the angler for greater angler comfort and increases the anglerís leverage by shifting the rodís fulcrum, thereby creating a true physical advantage for the angler relative to the fish.
All Penn International V IGFA rods have the additional characteristics listed below:
- Reel Seat: Stuart Aluminum
- Blank Material: Glass
- Blank Construction: Tubular
