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.

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 .
Handle is uncomfortable luncky.

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.
Smooth cast and retrieve Can pack a lot of braid onto this

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

Penn Conflict. Hands down. This is a very good reel. I like it better than the Penn Battle, which I thought was the best value for the money after this reel. It was well built and designed for saltwater due to the metal design andtightly sealed. Another good reel to stock in our gear list.
Durable More drag and line capacity than the Battle.
The line capacity in the 8000 is less than the line capacity in Penn Battle 8000.

Looks good. Penn could have gone a bit heavier on the drag for this big a reel but time will tell
