    Not too sure if Wal-Mart has any idea what they're selling, but I just found these two combos with the SitetoStore offer (means they'll ship it to a close store by you for free) for dirt cheap! I'll be ordering the 220 GTO, definitely.

    The 220 GTO combo is only $70.00, that's less than the reel costs alone. :smile2:

    320 GT2 combo is apparently attached to a Penn Slammer 6'6" 20-50lb. Line Rated Rod with 6 eyelets. For $106.00. :smile2: The reel brand new is $100.00.

    Seems like a steal to me!

    It probably is not the case, but I would check the specs against what you are expecting and make sure they are the same. Walmart has enough buying power to order custom models that only walmart carries that are cheaper but often not the same. I'm not sure if they do this for reels but they do a lot for electronics. I remember when I bought a TV a few years back Walmart had a tv made by the same company, same size and looked exactly the same as mine but the model number was one letter different. It was $100.00 cheaper but did not have as many features.

    Yeah, I know about this. My Mom is a co-manager at the Wal-Mart around here, and she said the same thing. The Penn Slammer Rod attached to these have the same serial number of the "originals", and those even retail at $50.00.
