I have a couple of 7' Penn Battle XFast Spinning rods laying around (I bought the combos a couple years just for the reels). I was thinking about using them for gotcha plugs.

What are your thoughts or experience?

Ought to work fine. Keep the drag on the light side.

I prefer a moderate action rod for that sort of application as it casts farther and is more forgiving when hooking/fighting fish. But if you set your drag pretty light I think you'll be okay.
