FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PENN Carnage III

Next-generation of high-performance rods are lightweight and extremely durable.

COLUMBIA, S.C. – Signs of life above and below the surface tempt anglers to test their gear against the grit of big-water species. The reliability of a well-built rod can make or break a day on the water when battling hard-fighting fish. New from PENN, the Carnage III rods represent the next generation of high-performance rod building with powerful, lightweight blanks and high-end components that deliver maximum durability.

PENN’s Carnage III Inshore models feature SLC2 rod blank construction, which houses inner spiral carbon wraps and outer layers of longitudinal carbon fibers. The result is an extremely strong yet balanced rod built for hard-fighting species that require versatile gear.

The Boat/Jigging, West Coast, Surf and ULUA models feature SLS3 blank construction built with a very thin diameter blank while maintaining a lightweight feel designed for aggressive action from formidable big-water species.

New for 2021, the Carnage III Slow Pitch models feature RCB2 rod construction consisting of a rolled composite core and outer layers of longitudinal glass, which provides a lightweight, thin, and parabolic blank that flexes from grip to tip, distributing weight for extra durability.

The entire series of Carnage III rods are customized with high-end components such as Fuji K-Guides to ensure flawless performance as well as better casting and reduced friction during line-peeling fish battles. PENN completes this workhorse of a rod with Sea-Guide or Fuji reel seats and custom handles built for comfort.

Looking forward to hearing more about this rod! Can’t ever have enough jig sticks. 😁


Sweet spot will be with Tady 45's, but still loads up well with Tady 4/0's or Tady C's, and can also handle Candy Bar 112's. On the bigger side, a 7X is OK but a bit heavier than ideal, and a Tady A1 is just a bit smaller/lighter than ideal.

Hopefully we can get our hands on the new rods soon! Thanks for the info.

Why do they all start at 8' ? Nothing shorter? Well the bft special is 7'6. Will the others be offered at 7 6 or 7' as well?

I'm asking because I fish off my own boat. I don't need the longer rod

There are a number of very nice 6.5 and 7-footers, but they are listed under the Carnage III's "boat" category.
