PENN 113H/114H Senator Reel/Slammer Rod Combo
Our family has used Penn products for over 50 years, both personally and and on our charter boats. All these rods and reels have performed superbly. We have never broken a Penn rod with just a slight bending of the rod. We have landed several 300 bluefin tuna on rods only rated for line 30-80# test line. They stood up under the pressure. I recommend these rods and reels to anyone.

I received this item as a gift from my wife on Christmas. I finally took it out today on a sports fishing boat out of Newport Beach, Ca. This combo is definitely worth every penny. I was easily able to feel every strike through the rod. Additionally, this thing reels as if it has a motor on the inside assisting you. I was able to circle hook some nice sized sheephead, rock fish, and perch. The sheephead were the largest but was no match for this combo. I have it spooled with 80lb. Braid, and it feels capable of bringing up a whale if necessary.
If you are on the fence about purchasing the combo, just do it. This is an amazing piece of equipment.

This combo is the real deal
On Thursday Feb 18 I spent over two hours in the Manteeca, ca location looking for the perfect rod and reel. I looked at them all, researched them all and priced every setup you could imagine. I finally settled on the Penn Slammer combo with the 113h and the slammer rod strung with the Bass Pro Shops 40 pound mono. On Friday night at 11:23 I started fighting a 400 POUND sturgeon that was OVER 9ft long (yea baby) it took me an hour and fifteen minutes but I got him. The next day I caught a 4 pound cat fish (lol) I guess it works for those too. If you are looking for a great setup I strongly recommend this package.

Another awesome penn combo
This thing is just great. It is big enough to hold a lot of line, ( 50lbs suffix mono, w 50lbs seaguar fluoro leader) perfect set up i catch plenty of gags that are keepers, the rod can take the beating of the salt and wind, great from piers or out in the gulf/ocean. great strength, easy to use. I got the 6'6" slammer with the 4/0 113H 30-50lbs combo and its a little bulky at times but it gets the job done and thats what i want. It has great crank power, you dont have to play the fish out with this rod/reel just crank it in..it can take it.
