Penn's Conflict Spinning Reel delivers a light weight and smooth casting reel capable of big drag pressure. With a stealthy, low key cosmetic of black on black and smoky gray markings, Conflict may look quiet, but one cast and you'll see it screams Penn craftsmanship and engineering.

Overall this reel is larger than I expected but does way more than I intended to use it for. For the price the reel is a great buy, has great brakes, and looks awesome.

Terrific Value
October 13, 2016
Finishing up a season with the 2000 here in Minnesota and I'm extremely impressed. This is a rock solid reel with a flawless drag, It handles 10# braid or 8#mono with equal ease, and within a couple of casts I forget it's there. I particularly appreciate its weight and heft, as it balances really well with the 6' 6" to 6'9" rods I prefer for walleye jigging and bass finesse presentation. I find too many of today's high tech, high end, reels too light to balance well with most rods. My Penns, however, bring a outfit's weight right under my hand. Doing this removes weight from the rod tip and increases sensitivity.
ProsSolid. Silky. Bullet proof.

Nice reel
December 1, 2015
This reel casts nice even with braid line on the spool. The reel has a smooth retrieval and a nice drag system to withstand larger fish in the Bay. The reel is not heavy like other reels in it's class.

October 29, 2015
Is a heavy duty reel very strong and smooth I also love the low key stealthy look it's different from all the rest but the only thing I'm not feeling is the big grip on the handle feels kind of awkward penn could not really help me with this handle so I tried the handle from the battle 6000 and it works only if penn can make different handles for these reels to accommodate it's customers .
ProsStrong
ConsHandle is uncomfortable luncky.

I use this reel for my local spillway fishing and it is very strong and works very well. Never fails on me, just rinse good after use if used for saltwater!

Great overall reel at a good price. The conflict is very durable, smooth and saltwater resistant. I have had the conflict 4000 for a year and have not experienced any problems with it so far.

LOVE THIS REEL
May 12, 2015
This is a fantastic reel for the price. Excellent for everything from Tarpon to Grouper to jigging for Tuna. Built super tough, and especially when paired with braid (I use 65 lb Power Pro on this) the line sails off the reel when casting long distance. Highly recommend the Conflict.
ProsSmooth cast and retrieve Can pack a lot of braid onto this

I'd recommend the 8000 size for big snook but this is a really good reel for smaller snook and many inshore species. I have used it for the last year and the gears have never failed me even with all te salt I put them through

great gears and almost entirely open. you can see the gears and the vents allow salt to be pulled out when put in. overall great reel and it is a must for jig-throwers and snook fisherman

My Conflict 6000 was put through a lot of abuse last year, it was dunked, splashed and everything in between. It is still running like the day I got it. It has a very smooth drag too.
