I've had the 4K Combo for about 3 years. It has never failed me, and the cork on the rod still looks great. Catches fish.....and the rod considered a M for saltwater, would be closer to a MH for freshwater use.

Had this same combo for years and finally bit the dirt after many nice fish caught. Handled 30+ lb cobia better than 7000 series rod I also used

Ordered the blue 4000 combo for wife's birthday
Reel and rod shipped separate

Reel arrived with a nick on the spool where it would directly scrape line constantly.

TD sent me a return label, returned and replaced with no shipping cost to me.
I was upset at first, but TD made it right with no questions asked. Happy customer
ProsBest inshore spinning combo for a tight budget IMO Great drag, good power New color scheme is sweet Easy maintenance
ConsNot completely sealed, keep it clean and maintained or buy a much more expensive setup

I've got several of these combos in different sizes, 4000, 4500 and 5000, and I've been very happy with them. They cast well, work great for bottom fishing and even trolling in a pinch. I am sure I've overloaded the rod and have not broken any of the three that I have have. Several of my friends don't like the rods in these combos but for what I am doing they work fine. I use them on my dock for catfish and rockfish and on the boat with the kids to bottom fish, mostly stripers and catfish.
Prosgreat for the price very tough, a ton of charters use them for bottom fishing
Consthe reel is heavy

Prosvalue for the $ a lot of bottom fishing charters in the bay area use them for a season or two which says a lot about how tough they are.

I love the setup, very sturdy and extremely balanced. Shipping was quick and the packaging was pristine however when I received the rod it was missing the butt cap. I didn't notice the butt cap was missing being I had not used the rod and reel. Once I realized it was missing, I contacted tackle direct twice and thus far the missing butt cap hasn't been resolved.

Received this rod and reel within days of my order. Came in two different packages which was fine being the rod was tightly packed in the oversized tube. Haven't gotten a chance to use yet but seems to be very well built with a nice balance for the combo.
ProsGreat packaging and quick delivery

Great rod/reel for the price. The rod is a bit bulky, but not as bad as the cheaper whuppin stick rods. Quality you would expect from Penn.

I am looking for this reel on a boat rod. Can you recommend?
2 Answers
We do not have a combo with this reel on a smaller boat rod. So, you will have to purchase the reel and rod seperately. I would reccomend taking a look at Penn's Mariner II Boat rods ( http://www.tackledirect.com/penn-mariner-ii-boat-spinning-rods.html ) or I would suggest checking out Daiwa's VIP Conventional boat rod. ( http://www.tackledirect.com/daiwa-vip-conventional-stand-up-rods.html )
