Penn via Amazon [amazon.com] has a pretty good deal on the Pursuit III 7' 4000 Spinning Reel & Rod Combo. Recent price was $69.99, normal pricing seems to hover at $59.99 and current sale is $50.99. Not bad considering the reel is currently $39.39 on sale.
  • Ht-100 carbon fiber drag washers
  • Lightweight and corrosion-resistant graphite body
  • 4+1 stainless steel bearing System
I'm a beginner and have been using the Battle II 9' 6000 (for bay fishing, surf perch, and Salmon) and I was looking for something a little smaller for the bay and all around general. The Battle II gets a little heavy after 4+ hours of fishing in the bay.

Save money get the gx2 ugly stik combo from walmart for under $40. You're paying for the reel in this combo. Filter by 4000/7' and all you'll find are broken rods. gx2 ugly stik is a solid platform at an affordable price. You won't break it. Go catch some fish.

This sale started a day or 2, the rod on this combo seems a bit light. They also have the pursuit reel only, and battle 2 combo for sale.

It's usually $69.99 by retail. Walmart has had it at 50.99 forever. Amazon recently price matched to match. Prior to the price match they were 59.99. They dropped it $9 in the last few days to be a penny under walmart. I watch these combos like a hawk. This deal has come and gone since March every few weeks.

Walmart also has the medium light in 1 piece for the same price and other combos. Amazon is notorious for shipping 1 and 2 piece rods in 5 to 6 pieces. So go trust Amazon if you want, but the price isn't any better than Walmart.

90 day Walmart return policy > Amazon 30 day

Well there you go. It wasn't on Amazon and had you mentioned Walmart we probably wouldn't be having this conversation. I can tell you this, living in a small town off the coast, my Walmart does not have everything (including this rod and reel combo), so I wasn't thinking about getting it there. Also I do trust Amazon. The 9' Battle II I purchased from them came fine, as all the other PRIME shipments and returns are easy enough I don't have to worry and I also need the two-piece because my trunk is only so big.

Regardless, it's still a deal at more than 25% off and had this popped up on SD via any thread (including Walmart) I would have jumped on it a lot sooner. At the end of the day we're all here for deals and there's not enough fishing deals being posted.

I'm thinking of starting to fish. For me, Surf fishing and lake fishing would be the most accessible to me. This would be too small of a rod to do both, correct?

Is there a rod that does both?

From my research, most people recommend a longer pole for castability when surf perch fishing. That's why I got the 9' and well it's also heavy enough to use for Salmon.
