Default rod for penn 10/0?

i should be getting a 10/0 senator soon and i will be using it for shark fishing off the beach. im just looking for rod recomendations. i want to try and stay away from roller guides and graphite reels seats. my max price would probably be $300 but id like to stay well below this if at all possible. i wont be putting anything less than #80 mono on it. im not sure if that matters. thanks in advance.

where are you located? check out half hitch tackle. the rods made for the shop are perfect at 60-130lb rating and $100. i use it with my 12/0 and 80lb line.

I'm just curious, why are you steering clear of roller rods? Also, welcome to LBSF!

thanks lowprofile. i think ill go with one of those then. im located in milton. nice tiger by the way.

beeritself, id mostly like to stay away from full rollers because of just sand invasion. i know if you keep it oiled well this is less likley to happen i just dont want to spend alot of money on a rod and it get messed up. but $100 bucks i can handle the one roller on the half hitch rods lowprofile mentioned.

thanks for the input. really appreciate it guys. good luck and tight lines.

the 100$ half hitch rod LP has is bad ass. If I remember right it has a lifetime guarantee also. and with the 200$ you save you could almost buy a yak to run your baits out! Good Luck UGLY

Don't know if I would ever 'oil' a roller guide. Oil on your mono or braid is a bad thing. Keep them rinsed with fresh water after each use and you will never have a problem with roller guides.

Take lowprofiles advice on the rod. That rod is great and you don't need to spend $300 on a rod. Use that extra $200 for bait, beer and a couple of Subway sandwhiches for me, BeerItSelf and lowprofile while we shark fish.

i got a yak but ill keep ya'll in mind. me and my buddy have been trying to land some sharks since december now and we havent had much luck with our only two hooks ups getting off. we've been using a 6/0 and 9/0 and i just wanted to add another reel to the mix. dave(sharknut) has also been out there with us once and we had some short runs but none with commitment. ive kept up with alot of ya'lls posts and you guys definately know your shit. next time ya'll are in pensacola or navarre during the weekend id love to come out and watch&learn if thats ok. thanks again. i can't bring beer but i can bring some bait.

Yea, we need to all get together and invite some of the younger guys, (And girls) out to see if we can provide some tips and experience. Me, OzzyVega, BeerItSelf and HaileysDad are fishing the shark tournament at the end of this month and need to get some time in before then.

Oh, and the ghost peppers, or I think they are actually referred to as ghost chili's will damn near melt steel they are so hot. Makes a habinero taste like ice cream!
