Bought the 7 ft medium heavy combo and have over a year on it. I like the solid feel of the rod and penn drag but the combo gives me line problems on a regular basis. I think like many penn products probably better for live bait fishing. If doing a lot of cast with artificial buy shimano or something else. The reel is starting to make a little noise now too. I'm going to give it one more try and drop to a lighter braid. 20 lb power pro won't work with this rig. Maybe this combo would be ok with mono.

Rated 3 out of 5 by cswartz04 Reel is great, rod not so much.
I purchased one of these combos last year and picked up another earlier this season. The reels have been holding up pretty well in light saltwater fishing (primarily pier/dock). The rods, however, are not doing so well. I had an insert pop out of one of the guides within the first year on the older rod and the second combo I bought earlier this season had one of the guides crack. The money you're spending on this combo is definitely toward the reel. I would consider the rod something you will probably need to replace after a year.

Rated 3 out of 5 by tread684 Decent reel, not for surf fishing
This reel will serve you well if you can keep it out of the saltwater. I fish the surf in rhode island and it lasted less than two months (about 80 hrs of fishing) before the bearings were toast. I lost only one lure due to premature bail flip. Paired with fireline this reel has subdued many stripers including 6 stripers from 30" - 36" on the battle 3000. Drag is very good. I would pay an additional $50 if Penn made it with ceramic bearings. Penn and other manufacturers need to read the forums and realize there's a huge gap in the market for reels that can be dunked and not seize for less than $700.

I used this rod on a deep sea fishing trip recently. I use it as a flat line rod and it has great back bone. I brought in a 30 pound Red Snapper with no problem and also a 15 pound Amber Jack. Sure the fish fought hard but the rod fought harder. Drag system is great. Just make sure if your going for bigger fish (15-30 pounds) tighten the drag down. I recommend using 60-80 pound braid. You can't go wrong with this rod.
