Good find.

Ok. This is a bigger saltwater reel. This is not suitable for your typical freshwater fishing (bass, lake trout, pan fish, etc). Would be a good combo for the beach or jetty and maybe boat (8' would be a touch too long for boat, but would work) for bigger saltwater species (say target ~20-50# fish). This would also make a good catfish setup.

The penn pursuit is a great reel for the price. The rod is likely nothing special, but will get the job done. Its a medium heavy power rod, so good for fishing with bait or lures.

Actually, 8' rods aren't that unpopular fishing the boats down in socal. Sometimes it's good to get your baits out further from the boat or if you fish poppers targeting tuna boils you often need the extra reach. Not saying I'd recommend this combo for fishing tuna boils but for everything else it would likely be ok. Of course, most guys seem to prefer conventional and levelwind baitcasting setups for that matter.
rod is rated 12-25lb actually which would work well for smaller yellowfin tuna in the 10-15lb class. and the reel should hold up fine too with the carbon drags and loaded with 30-50lb braid. you might have a tougher time if the fish class steps up to 20-30lb however.

Yes, there are always exceptions. My comment was meant to be a generality.

If you know enough about fishing, than you likely know if they combo is suitable for what you do or not. I use see whenever a fishing deal is posted, people that don't fish ask "is this a good setup for X".

And for the record, I'm an east coast fisherman, so I understand their may be some difference for technique and gear for across your way.

Yea I can see how this would not work that well on the east coast boats. I'm guessing the longest you'll use out there maybe is 7-7'6 if anything right? The Florida guys might like these for 'smaller' species of course. But yea these are best for shore bait and wait and catfishing imho. these would do a fine job for dungeness crab snaring and west coast bait and wait striper and perch fishing too. even leopard shark bait and wait in the socal surf.

Nice find OP! Thanks for the info regarding the rod+reel. I'm not an avid fisherman so I appreciate for explanation of the gear.

Wondering if this setup would be too much for surf perch fishing up here in OR and WA. Seems like it could be.
