Default Penn reel question (Battle)

A sports store local to me here in Ga. has several Penn Battle 2000 or 3000 spinning reels with Battle rods 6'6" or 7' combos for $89.95. I was considering purchasing one (3000, 7') to use for Pompano or Spanish next week. First, is that a decent reel and rod? Also, is the price good or average. Thanks!

Do it. You won't be disappointed in the reel. The rod I have no clue but if you like the action it's a great deal

yeah the smaller battles retail for 99.99 so you're getting a free rod and a 10$ discount on the reel. i have 3 battles 4000. 6000, and 8000 they are all awesome the 6000 is a combo came with the battle rod which is pretty nice. I've handled the rods from the smaller battle combos as well and they feel pretty nice. they are a little stiffer than the action they are listed as though. But they look great cast well and they get the job done.
