Originally I got the medium-heavy (30-50lb) but found it too stiff so I returned it.
But, I discovered that the Penn Mariners I acquired had more in common with a pool cue than a fishing rod (online shopping does have its pitfalls; you can't 'feel out' things before you buy them), and I determined that I needed something to replace them with that had a somewhat softer tip and a more modern action --and also wouldn't break the bank.
Enter the Okuma Sr-C-661MH. I ordered 2 of these bad-boys (6'6", and rated for 30-50lb line) and I now have a much better matched set of rods/reels for the usage had in mind. The rods don't have the heavy-duty "Turbo" style guides that the Penn Mariners do, and I would have also liked to have a solid 'slick butt' similar to Penn's rather than the dense closed-cell foam back grips on these Okuma's. But the provided guides are still plenty stout, made of stainless steel, furnished with more than adequate aluminum oxide rings, and tightly wrapped to the rod. Overall, the rods seem to be very well built, much lighter than the Mariners, and are quite cool looking to boot.
Also, unbeknownst to me, Okuma and/or Amazon had several ongoing promotions related to these rods, and I got an additional $8.86 knocked off of each of them. Sweeeeeeet!
So, needless to say, I am a very satisfied customer in terms of both the quality of the rods (at least so far; the field testing will come later) and the price (which is ridiculously low, in my estimation).
My advice? Git cha some!
