Hi guys, looking at getting a new spinning rod. And as I am a bit of a Penn fan I am looking at the Penn Regiment either 10ft or 11ft .

Rod will be used mostly to spin for shad and occasionally throwing a bait.

Any reviews of guys having used the rod will be appreciated.

I also have the 11', lovely rod - incredible how strong it is / how much backbone it has for how light it is. Casts really well/easily - it's quite a stiff rod but not so much that it makes casting require too much precision - easily get 90m+ with a 2oz plug (I have it paired with a clash 5000 with 30lb JDB xtreme braid). Can push for more distance but I've had a few wind knots on such occasions - only (tiny) gripe is the guides - K-series would have been better. But it's far from a real issue. Actually, at first I had Berkley Fireline on, which is a strange / rather lumpy braid, once I changed the wind knots disappeared really.
I've also used it for a bit of scratching, 2-3oz sinker and small baits, works real well - have picked up a very feisty smooth hound of about 6kg, also a fair-sized eagle ray one night this way and rod handled both just fine.
All that being said, it's the only spinning rod I've owned (aside from an 8' mitchell master caster), so personally don't truly know how it compares to other options.

Hi guys, So I went to the tackle shop today and they only had a 9ft regiment. Ended up buying a Daiwa Exceler 10ft.

sien jy was haastig...

n pel van my het die 11 voet 1-4 ons.
daars lekker baie back bone in hom.
paired met n penn clash 5000 en Berkley black valvet 30lb.

1-2 ons is n bietjie lig vir die stok.
dis n moerse nice setup moet ek self se.

my broer het weer die sensation 11 voet.
ook n lekker stok daai. 1-4 onse. n bietjie stywer as die penn stok.
hyt n daiwa exceller 4000 katrol met Berkley black velvet 30lb.
hy is baie impressed met sy setup.

ek weer het die daiwa exceller 9,6 en die 11 voet, 1-3 onse.
ekt weer n penn clash 4000 wat ek daar gebruik en het nog power pro 14lb braid.

albei stoke gooi 1-2,5 onse soos n droom.
ek love my setups, soms het n mens n swaarder stok nodig en soms n ligter stok "ounce rating"

daars ongelukkig geen golden rod oppi mark nie.

ek dink die exceller 10 voet is n goeie lengte

Ja, my gat het bietjie gejeuk vir n nuwe stok. En wou nie korter as 10ft gaan nie. Die enigte ordentlike opsie daar was toe die exceler. Aangesien die stok vir n baie goeie prys daar gehang het en die feit dat die Excelers hul self ook al et tyd bewys het as goeie waarde vir geld het ek toe maar besluit dat hy saam met my sal moet huis toe kom.

off topic the Shimano SpeedCast looks a good purpose built spinning rod.. reel seat and guides and blank sounds a win win and might see it surface here in future with catches and mini reports maybe.. few models available already and differently priced though one is in your price bracket

waiting for it to be locally available to view it and consider if not already here as i haven't been in a tackle shop for a few months. best thing about tackle is you can always have more or upgrade later lol.
