Sturdy, good looking, and affordable price.
The price of this combo is lower than the single reel, FRC6000. So I do not see any reason not to buy it.
But be careful that this is 1-piece rod, not foldable. You cannot put it into a sedan trunk. But it can be easily put into sedan's seat area.
I bought this rod/reel combo mainly for fishing the James River and Chesapeake Bay for Striper but also use it for catfish. It casts far and true and is sturdy enough for whatever fish I am fortunate enough to reel in. I use it for trolling, jigging, bait fishing, bottom fishing, hard baits, and top water lures. It has an adjustable drag that can be easily adjusted while reeling in the big one. This is a great, versatile combo package for my first saltwater pole and expect it to last for years to come.
exactly as I was expecting, and very economical for a high quality combo. I would have preferred a two piece rod, but the quality is higher in one piece and couldn't beat the price.
Rod is very strong. reel is smooth, has good drag. Have 40# braid on mine and already caught a bunch of sharks with it. Highly recommended. This is my second Penn Fierce, first one is the 8000. Penn is the way to go
I pulled some big fish in with this and while light it still performed superbly. I was impressed by the lighter weight but still extra strength this rod had. It is 1 piece, so boat storage ir inside seating area is only place it will fit. but not the trunk.
Reel work beautifully smooth and nice drag setting.
The rod and reel combo are well matched.
Works great caught 2lb lg. mouth bass very smooth reeling need a little more practice to zero in on spots on lake but felt combo was a great deal on sale ,will be using for surf fishing in gulf later, may need longer rod but we shall see.
Got this combo at the beginning of the sumer and loved it, great for catching stripers and blues. Super smooth when reeling in. Great weight and durability.
I have brought in sever big catfish in the 20 to 30 lbs range. I have the 5000 series, strung with 20 lb. string. I take a lot of kids fishing, that's why I chose the spinning reel. this is very user friendly. i can cast this reel with 20 lbs test line farther then i can my lew,s speedspool with 12 lb test. I will be buying more of these combos
Have several fierce models ranging from 4000-7000 very durable, easy to cast caught many species of fish wouldnt use anything else butt penn
I bought this rod because I love the way it felt. It's a very sturdy one piece rod and the grip on the spinning reel is very well thought out. When it comes to saltwater its a beast. Bull drum and the big uglies don't stand a chance against the Fierce 5000. This rod and reel combo has completely made me a Penn fan. A big step up from the Shakespeare Ugly Stick.
When I went to bass pro shop I got the 30 pound combo it seemed to be the best value since the reel is made up of all metal, I haven't caught anything bigger than 5 pounds yet but thats because I've been fishing at piers, with the 9 foot pole I can cast to anywhere I would desire. The only thing that annoy me is the difficulty taking the pole down, I have to grease the connection every time. And sometimes when casting the line gets caught on a certain part of the bail but over all great combo. This is not a light combo so intend to put it in a holder or get sore sholders.
I have had this rod for a year and have caught hedge fish off piers! Yesterday I beached a 100 pound tarpon on this rod with 20 pound test! You can do so with the right drag set up. The only complaint is that the reel needs to hold more line for what I'm doing. Over all great rod!
The reel is nice on the eyes and works very well so far. The rod that it came with is another story; it broke on the first fish. Based on the break, it seems the rod was poor quality, what can one expect when the rod brought the price down?
Great combo for the price. I returned it, too heavy for inshore fishing. I waiting for the 4000 model instead.
i bought this for a friend and he so happy that i give it to him
The reel is decent but not happy with rod
