Penn Conflict 6000
April 4, 2014
This is an okay reel. It looks really nice, and feels rugged. However, with the spool being cut to lower the weight of the reel, I find it easier for sand or saltwater to enter the reel as you retrieve the line. For this reason, I believe it may cause the reel to break down quicker. I would use the extra money to buy the SpinfisherV. I have the Spinfisher 6500LL, and it has been an awesome reel for the money. Easy to maintain, and water tight.
Pros:Great casting distance, feels rugged, and look great.
Cons:saltwater and sand enter the reel through the spool hole, which cause more cleaning time, and may cause a quicker break down of the reel.
