Default [Rod Usage] What to fish for with this?

Hey guys -

So I've been fishing a long time. But, I have one rod in my arsenal - used to be my dad's - that I just can't find a niche for.

The rod is a Penn (I think International series), 2 piece, 6'6" spinning rod. It's got monster off shore eyes on it. I've used it before for kings in the gulf near shore, I've fished for redfish with it (overkill) and I want to say I've hooked up a few bonito, but it just takes second place to other rods better geared for that kind of thing. Anyone have a rod like this one, and where does it really shine?

Thanks,
R

Sounds like a great travel pier or jetty rod. Although surprised it's not longer

Maybe a travel bottom drop spinning rod?

Glad there's not a, 'That rod is clearly for <insert fish here>, dumbdumb.' That's a relief.

I kind of figured the same? I mean it works great as an all purpose rod for stuff, but it doesn't quite excel at anything I've thrown at it (compared to other specialized rods).
