PENN Fierce Spinning Rod and Reel Combo
Good Rod Great Price
this rod and reel combo is a definite must! Greats smooth action and reel, a little heavy with the graphite rod, most combos are more in the medium heavy group so if u wanna feel a bite with this rod add a braided line in instead.
If your looking for offshore get the 8000
Stay around the 5000-6000 for a lighter but inshore fishing type of activity

This is one of the best rod and reel combo I've ever use. I have 4000 series with a 7 feet rod. It was able to handle able handle 6 (20"+) black drum really well. I have also caught a few other fish (bluefish, sheepshead, jack, and blue runner) on it. Very reliable rod.The customer services at my local Bass Pro Shops was awesome.

Very Good Combo
I have purchased the 4000 model combo for inshore fishing and have caught speckled trout, sail cats, spanish mackleral, and blue fish without a problem on it. I also purchased the 8000 model for pier and surf fishing. I haven't yet caught any fish on it other than bait, but i have hung a porpus for about 1 minute on it and the drag was very smooth, the rod was very stout, and the reel had no problem even tho the porpus spit out the bait, everything held up and performed well. I can't wait to hang a king mackeral with it on the pier. I plan on taking it shark fishing off the jetties later this year. It should do very well.

Penn Fierce Combos
I went to purchase the new Fierce 8000 reels only, saw the combos, went ahead and got them. Reels were priced 79.99, combos were 99.99, i figured the rods had to be worth 20 bucks, used them cobia fishing this spring, caught a ton of 2-1/2 to 4 ft sharks and a few cobia as well, no problems ! biggest fish caught was probably 50-60 lbs, smooth drag, rods held up fine. I think I have gotten more than what they cost me, if/when they brake, time for the ugly stiks, I have been completely satisfied with them, just picked up 3 more 3000 series combos to chase redish and trout. I feel a very good product at an excellent price !
