Mariner® Boat Rods cover all of your inshore fishing needs, from back-bay fishing with light spinning gear, to bottom fishing with conventional boat rods, to some serious bottom fishing for monster halibut with the AFTCO Roller Tip-Topped Rod (model MB3080C56). Penn Mariner® Boat and Spinning Rods feature foam front and rear grips for comfort and durability, ceramic inserted guides, and hooded real seats.
Constructed from solid glass blanks for durability, the Penn Mariner® is unlike typical solid-glass rods, with tapers comparable to more expensive tubular blanks. Weight is minimal when compared to other solid-glass rods, courtesy of some clever engineering from Penn rod designers, using the latest glass composite materials and construction techniques.
