Great Overall Rod
I have used these rods for a long time and if you are looking for a rod with backbone and will hold up in any situation for fishing, buy this one. They are great snapper rods, red fish rods, bass or what ever you want to catch. I have even caught sail fish on them in the Keys. Great rod and a great price

My clients loved this rod. I will be switching over to all Battalions for my inshore go to rod.

My favorite rod in the arsenal
I own the split grip 7ft medium paired with a Cinnetic Crafty Black 4000. Smooth combo, lightweight and hardcore. Works great with top water and suspending slams.

Quality build & lightweight!
I purchased this rod about 2 weeks ago, i was able to take it out kayak fishing at a local lake. I rigged it up with a Battle Fierce II 3000 series reel. Little heavier than I would go for fishing still water, but the grip where your hand goes is so slim its almost uncomfortable for me. I don't have small hands, and there's not a lot of cushion to fish without readjusting every few casts.

However, I would buy another one of these rods giving Penn's reputation and the quality of build on these rods. I've never had a rod or reel fail due to error of build. I've tested their equipment in saltwater bay fishing and inland freshwater lakes and rivers. I will update once this rod sees some saltwater aggression from East coast Red Drum!

I own 16 of these for my charter business. Besides customer stepping of falling on a rod NONE have broken. I must say that the few reviews that are saying how poor quality they are must have either abused them or they are internet TROLLS! These rods some pretty old hold up to extreme conditions.All my charter rods are Battalions with Battle II and are bullet proof.

Very nice pole
Bought this pole about two weeks ago it’s very nice , the gold paint on it makes it look like a 300$ pole feels very light and smooth. Casts very good Especially with my conflict 2 5000. I definitely will be buying one or two more of these pools highly recommend them

nice action rod
unfortunately after my first fish I got the hook caught in an underwater tree and snapped the tip. Probably more the user than the product.

Excellent replacement for Penn Legion series rods
I bought a pair of the BATIN612S66 rods to replace the long discontinued Legion series. They are just as good and works very well flipping live baits next to the mangroves catching snook and redfish. Excellent when paired with Penn Fierce 3000 series reels.
