The Penn International V VS5010RS56 Standup Rod comes equipped with an AFTCO roller tip as well as bottom guide to protect your line at the two most pressured points on the blank, but PacBay Turbo aluminum oxide guides with ceramic inserts grace the rest of the rod so the cost of the rod is kept down. Anglers using this rod will find the same quality e-glass construction as the standard International V Rods, making for a tough and forgiving blank that won’t fail when your catch is at boatside. At a 5’6” length, the VS5010RS56 is best used on the troll, paired with a 50 wide sized Penn International (or similar) offshore reel. There’s plenty of backbone here, so don’t be afraid to target large, angry predators like shark, tuna, and marlin. The Penn International V VS5010RS56 Standup Rod comes with a heavy duty aluminum reel seat, and a slick butt for added comfort.
