The Penn Pursuit III Combos are carefully paired rod and reel combinations by the product experts at Penn. Each size reel is matched with a rod that is purpose-built for pairing with its particular reel counterpart. 

Rod Features:

  • Graphite Composite Blanks
  • Dura-Guides (eliminate inserts from popping out)
  • EVA Grips

 

The Penn Pursuit III is designed to deliver big fish fighting capabilities at an entry level price point. Most lower priced spinning reels use oiled felt drag washers which simply cannot stand up to the abuse taken from large saltwater fish. Penn has solved this problem by implementing their HT-100 drag material into their opening price point spinning reel. This means that the Pursuit III features the same durable carbon drag found on significantly more expensive reels. This key addition, along with a corrosion resistant graphite body and 5 shielded stainless steel ball bearings, make the Pursuit III the strongest reel in its class.

Penn Pursuit III Features:

  • HT-100 carbon fiber drag system
  • Lightweight and corrosion resistant graphite body
  • 4+1 shielded stainless steel ball bearings
  • Superline Spool
  • CNC folding aluminum handle
  • Infinite Anti-Reverse

Big Game Combo (8000102H)
February 1, 2022
This is an awesome combo for targeting bigger fish from shore. The reel holds a ton of line so you don't have to worry about being spooled. The rod is loaded with power to bring in monsters. Have landed a 60 lb Eagle Ray quite easily really.
Pros
  • - Large line capacity
  • - Excellent casting distance
  • - Rod has backbone and flex to fight big fish
  • - Fast retrieve
Cons
  • - Not suited for when fish are nibbling. The stiffness of the tip usually run them away after a couple of nibble compare to a softer rod. But hey, I don't think this was made with small fish in mind!

Great price and product and best price ever. I wish they can ship faster and provide free product protection like $8.
Pros
  • Best price, great rod and reel
Cons
  • Free protection fee of $8. Faster shipping...take 2 weeks too long.

Good price and quick shipping on the durable rod/reel combo, just what I needed for my kayak.
Pros
  • Reel is simple and easy to maintain (I already own another Pursuit). The rod is fiberglass and on the heavy side which is exactly what I wanted because it's durable and will get banged around kayak fishing. Good for a wide range of fish, a desert island setup.

I purchased the 6000 combo with 7ft MH rod and I loaded it with 50lb braid. I landed a couple of feisty California yellowtail with this bad boy no problem. One of them was 18lbs and put up a good fight. This setup is ready to catch many more! Planning to purchase a few more of these for others to use on the boat.

Here's the secret boys and girls; Dont dunk your fishing gear in the ocean. When you are done fishing you must rinse the rod and reel off with fresh water. You should also take the reel apart from time to time and add a spot of grease and few drops of oil here and there. Moving parts will eventually require some maintenance.

Bought this combo for my 8 year old son to replace his small beginning setup. Absolutely perfect for the price. The pursuit 3 reel performs the exact same as my fierce and battle reels, literally no difference except the colors and the lower price.

It's about $50 for just the reel or for $70 you get the rod with the combo, it's a no brainer. Get the rod just to have extra even if not needed. The rod is slightly stiffer then other medium fast action rods I have, but we fish a lot of structure like docks and bridges and it works great.

Spooled w 20lb braid. My son has been smashing snappers, sheepsheads, and small snook.

Pros
  • Works as well as my $150 combos for half the price
  • You get a rod for $20 basically buying the combo instead of just the reel.
Cons
  • None for the price

I think when it comes to Saltwater fishing. Penn should be one of the options if you are looking for a new combo. It has been on the market for a long time.

Not Durable At All
November 10, 2020
I purchased the combo in May and it was broken by June. I used it about ten times and the internal gears were completely destroyed. It is very inexpensive but the quality is terrible and I do not know if I will be using Penn again.
Pros
  • Durable Rod
  • Inexpensive
Cons
  • Non-durable reel
  • Easy to have screws loosen
