Penn Battalion Inshore rod

I'm looking to get an inshore rod. I've always liked Penn products, so I went and looked at their site. The battalion with the "foam" grips looks like a nice choice for me. I'd just like to know if you'd recommend this rod for inshore fishing and casting surf plugs. If not, I'm certainly open to recommendations. However, I do not like cork handles, no matter how good the rod.

Here is a link:


I just think it may be too heavy for casting light plugs. It's rated for 3/4 oz to 2 1/2 oz.
Is it too long/too short at 7 feet?

Model number: BATIN1530S70

Thank you!
