Arm yourself for the most punishing saltwater battles with the Penn Battle II Spinning Reel Combo. This fishing combo pairs a robust full metal body fishing reel with an ultra-responsive fishing rod, giving you a potent combination of strength and sensitivity. Crafted from durable materials and packed with fish-fighting features, the spinning reel is engineered to catch fish year after year. From the full metal body, sideplate, and rotor to the five sealed stainless steel ball bearings, each component is designed to help you land your catch. The reel's HT-100 Versa-Drag carbon fiber drag system leverages both sides of each drag washer to provide maximum drag, and its instant anti-reverse bearing eliminates pullback, so you reel without interruption. Additionally, the drag washers are treated with a proprietary grease to ensure long-lasting performance. Suitable for use with Berkley or Spiderwire Superline, the spool is fitted with a rubber gasket that prevents the Superline from slipping under pressure, meaning anglers can use braided line without a monofilament backing. And thanks to its line capacity rings, the spool displays at a glance how much line is remaining. Constructed from graphite composite blanks and equipped with aluminum oxide guides, the fishing rod offers exceptional durability and responsiveness, making it an ideal complement for the Battle II reel.

This rod combo can and has handled all of these fish. Proof? Check out my Avatar. That's how it's done.
In my opinion Penn reels are the best. I also own 2 of these combos in the Battle 5000 size reel. The Battle 5000 combos have been with me for 5 years now, and we have caught just about every fish I mentioned on them during that time.They still work perfectly with a minimum of maintenance. I spray them down with fresh water after every use, blow out excess water with WD-40, and grease them once a year. They have held up incredibly well.
I also own Pfluger Presidente reels, and while the reels alone cost nearly twice the price of this Penn combo, they have not held up as well over the same 5 years with equal maintenance. The Presidente reels are beginning to rust. Not internally, but the reel casing itself, particularly around the reel seat where it is connected to the rod. One day the reel is just going to snap off.
The new reels have been substantially upgraded from the older models that I have, and are superior in construction. The Black reel casing is sleek and sharp looking, and seems to be sealed even better than the older models I have. The handles are detachable for cleaning and maintenance. The skirted spool on the new reel is drilled out to make the reel lighter, and the drag is managed with the typical dial on top of the reel. The drag system is amazing, and gives a lovely scream when a big fish strips line off. Tightening and loosening of the drag system is easy and quick while fighting a fish. The bail wire is black and nice and thick on this model, which was my only complaint about the reels I bought 5 years ago, their bail was very thin, so I think this is a nice upgrade on these newer models. It just feel better and stronger when you open the bail, as there is little to no flex in the bail wire.
The cost speaks for itself. The Battle 6000 reel alone is $125-150, so you're practically getting the rod for free. Some people are critical of these rod combos being cheap rods, but again, the combos I have had for the past 5 years have held up as well if not better than other rods. The rod is a graphite blank, aluminum oxide guides, and EVA grips. I don't know about you, but that's pretty much everything I look for in my rods. The rod is medium heavy, so it is a fairly stiff rod, but I'm looking forward to having that extra backbone when I'm fighting a big Dolphin or Wahoo, and a stiffer rod will do well to pull up a big Snapper or Grouper from 50 - 100 feet of water.
As stated, you can't beat the cost. That's unheard of in this day and age of fishing. It was unheard of 25 years ago when I was fishing as well. If anything, the cost of these newer reels and rods has actually come down over the past 25 years, while the quality has gone way up.
Love my old ones, love these newer models even more.
I've already gone and tested the Combo at a ocean Pier couple miles from where I live and worked out smoothly with no issues to point out right now. I pulled in first lucks catch and pulled in stripped bass. I've attached a picture.
In disgust, i took pictures and left the pole at the house which is 300 miles away. I decided to call Penn and see if they can warranty it as its only a few weeks old and used once. i am not chaep but its the principal. I submitted 2 pictures to Penn where you can see the tip missing which is obvious and they called it " marginally visible." This is a 12 megapixel camera. When you blow it up, you can see the individual windings for each eye.. They also wanted the reel model # which even blown up is fuzzy but you can tell it starts with btl and ends in 4000. . penn states they need this to complete warranty. I dont have an issue with the reel, just the rod. I just dont think that customer service from PENN is worth anything. They have lost my business forever. I own several other Penn products but it was bought in a different time and a different era . I would not recommend anything from PENN as there are other companies out there.
