    Thanks,
    I bought a new one and it held up to a tarpon. Cant wait for the spin fisher bail less kit to come out looking at getting one for big snook. I have a Van Staal vs100 and i am a fan of bail less reels. You guys should make a bailless sargus. :D

I have heard nothing but good reviews (except from a buddy of mine that had the same issue with the lever drag) about this real and I am wondering if anyone is having the same issue or maybe we just got the defective ones out of a bunch?

    Thanks TJ
    Thanks for all the help and support Mike! Can't wait to get my reel back and use it again

    Penn Battle Spinnng Combo

    Hi. I am interested in purchasing this rod/reel combo but I am a little hesitant. I really like this rod & reel combo & have spoken to a Penn rep last week about it. This Penn rep informed me I would need a Medium Heavy rod for the types of species I am targeting & the location. My concern was that the tip of this rod looks flimsy to me like it would break very easily if you hook a big fish. The Penn rep told me that he catches 15 lb. bass on it & no that would not happen.

    Last night while getting some live shrimp from my local bait & tackle shop, I see a bunch of brand new Penn Battles & Fierce rod & reels still in plastic (brand spanking new). I was asking about the pricing on this. A few minutes later 2 guys come into the tackle shop with a Penn Battle combo that they just bought from this tackle about a week ago but less then 10 days. The top had been broken off of it. I asked them if they were inshore or offshore when this happened. They said they were in the ocean & did not know what kind of fish they had but it was something big. This does not ease my mind.

    What type of warranty is there with this Penn Battle Spinning Combo (4000 Reel)?

    The type of fishing I do is strickly inshore from our dock near Port Everglades in Ft. Lauderdale. Species are snook, tarpon, jack crevalles, barracudas, mangrove snappers, lookdowns, catfish, pinfish, blowfish, etc.

    Really need my mind to be eased on this from Penn after this last night. A response would be appreciated. Thanks!

    For some reason I am getting NO response from Penn in this forum. If I don't get the courtesy of a response sooner or later, I will more then likely go without somebody else such as Shimano.

    Katwoman sorry for the delay in response, all PENN product caries a 1 year warranty but if you are to have any issues after your warranty has ran out we have several options to help get you back on the water quickly. The Battle combos are a great value for the $. You basically get a rod for a few $ more. The rods are graphite composite which mean they have both glass and graphite fibers in the blank which make them strong. When picking out your outfit just make sure you get the right combo to handle what you are doing. Based on the type of fishing you listed above I recommend going with the Battle 4000 combo with the 10-17lb rod. Please let me know if you have anymore questions. Sorry again for the delay in response.
