Review 1 for Penn Squadron SQDIN1017S70M 7' Spinning Rod

Quality Rod at a Reasonable Price

The Penn Squadron Medium action rod is an awesome addition to my fishing arsenal. The rod is well balanced and the contoured cork handle is excellent quality. I agree with another reviewer that the medium action is more like a medium heavy, but thats what i wanted. I paired it with a Pflueger Presidential 6940. would highly recommend this rod.

Never thought of Penn outside of reels and boat rods. You won't find the Squadron series on the Penn website because these rods are made by Penn for WalMart.
When I picked up this rod in the store, I immediately felt it was the action I was looking for. More expensive name brand rods that state Med/fast action are actually too Heavy/Slow-Mod or Lt.-Med/moderate.
After fishing with this rod, it's perfectly suited for school stripers using surface lures or jigs with 12-15 lb. test. Penn and WalMart did a good job creating such a quality rod at a good value.

I recommend this rod to inshore fishers. Very sensitive. Nice length. Casts fine. And is reliable when fighting good sized inshore species. I fished this rod in a tournament this passed weekend And it performed very well. I had been buying more expensive Abu Garcia rods and BPS tournament rods. The value and performance of this rod matches and is better than those more expensive rods.
I own 2 of these rods both mounted with Shimano Spheros 4000F reels. Im ordering another Spheros 4000FA reel and will mount it on this rod.
For the price you can not beat this rod. My guess is that Penn took extra rods from one of their main line, higher priced rods, and made a deal with Wal-Mart. And these are higher priced rods renamed Squadron. But that is only a guess.

Good rod for the price and very sensitive. The action seems to be heavier than marked.
Medium Heavy is like a Heavy and Medium is like a Medium Heavy to me.
