    I'd like to buy an all around rod for a Penn Battle II 8000. This is going to be a loaner setup for newbies on the boat. It'll be used for the usual species in So Cal. I already have a jigging rod for the reel.

    Thanks,

    JB

    In the PENN Carnage 2 series, the CARBWII50100S70 would be a good match to the reel for general offshore use [schoolie tuna, yellowtail, dorado], but that reel with almost any rod would probably be larger than you need for inshore work.

    Great, thank you. I was looking at the carnage series but was not sure if the 50-100 line rating was too much.

    I have a couple 4000 series reels for the inshore stuff.

    The Carnage 2 series does not have a "mono" rating, but this model would be equivalent to around a 25-40 mono rating.
