Default Penn Power Graph Spinning Reel

Hey guys, first time poster, but from what I've read so far, the sight seems great. A lot of knowledgeable guys.

Anyways, we were cleaning out my mom's old beach house this past weekend because she is moving to a retirement home in the near future, and I came across a surf combo that I hadn't seen before. Since no one else claimed ownership, I wound up with it. It's a decent rod, a type I've used before, but the reel is a Penn Power Graph. I have a number of Penns in my collection and have never had a problem with any of them. I took the reel apart, and other than a little bit of grime which I cleaned out, everything looks fine. This will be a backup reel in a pinch, and it looks like near bottom of the line for Penn, but does anyone have any experience that says other wise. Good? Worse than normal? Thanks in advance

I have a 6000 that I've been using in saltwater for years and never had a problem with it.

Big fan. My first saltwater-intended reel actually and my first "real" reel after moving to south florida what with funds then being what they were. Have a 6000 for salt since 2000 and used it for almost all that in-shore fishing since then except for a Penn Torque when the first version came out, FGor its inexpensive price = A workhorse in my opinion. Plasti-graphite housing worked fine for those uses. Japan made, some maybe later were China? Worn some of the grey color off mine from a lot of handling. Good solid reel and still exceptionally VERY smooth w having done no maintenance after near 20 yrs.
