PENN Battle Combo Wins Best Combo Award At ICAST 2012

The PENN® Battle™ Combo was awarded the Best Combo at the 2012 ICAST show in Orlando, Fla. The PENN Battle Combo is designed to give anglers a great rod and reel combination for angling in saltwater conditions.

PENN® introduced the Battle® spinning reel just a couple of years ago and the highly versatile and extremely reliable reel has become an inshore favorite. Now PENN offers anglers a great value-packed deal with the Battle family of combination rods and reels.

The combo features the Battle spinning reel on a one-piece graphite composite Battle rod complete with stainless steel guides with aluminum oxide inserts. The handle is created from a graphite reel seat and sculpted EVA and cork grips.

"The PENN Battle combo is designed for anglers that want the durable Battle with a pre-matched rod," said Mike Rice, PENN Senior Product Manager. "We are excited to be recognized by industry leaders and look forward to providing more new products in the very near future."

The Battle reel features a full metal body and sideplates, machined and anodized aluminum superline ready spool, six plus one stainless steel bearing system, HT-100™ drag washers, oversized EVA soft touch knob on the handle and 6.2:1 or 5.6:1 gear ratios.

The Battle 2000 reel is paired with a 6'6" light action rod with cork handle. The Battle 3000 is matched with a 7'0" ML rod with cork handle and the Battle 4000 is seated on a 7'0" medium rod with cork handle. The larger Battle 5000 is combined with a 7'0" MH rod with EVA grips and the Battle 6000 is paired with a 7'0" heavy rod with EVA grips.

The MSRP for the Battle Combo is $119.99 for the combos with the 2000, 3000 and 4000 reels and $129.99 for the combos with the 5000 and 6000 reels.
