Default Penn Ally Bent Butt Rod

does anyone know if this is a short bent butt? or a long bent butt? I am hoping short. I can get a smoking deal on one of these and would like to try one out in the 50-100lb class range. Nothing online says what it is and i have talked to people at penn and they cant answer. I will use it for stand up fishing in a harness so it needs to be a short.

The rod is a Unibutt rod and a long butt can easily be swapped for a short butt. But the price for the extra butt if you have to make the purchase might make your "smoking deal" not so smoking. ($150.00 from Tackle DIrect)

I know that's an option but beats the point of the deal. So what is a unibutt? Is it long or short? I want short to be able to fight standup which is 90% of my fishing. Not a fan of fighting out of a rod holder unless it's my wife or daughter reeling one in.

Awesome thanks. Do you think if I was to put them in my 9" deep gemlux rod holders will I be banging my knuckles?
