amazing inshore reel
July 28, 2015
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 reel at a great price.

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.
Great reel for the money

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.

The 6000 is a great reel for kayak trolling, paired up with a Penn Allegiance II, it's an unstoppable combo!

great inshore reel

This reel is very strong and light. Very comfortable handle and great drag. The holes allow salt to get in so rinse this reel well and grease it.

Very nice reel, I have it paired to my 10' IMX Surf rod and spooled with 300 yards of 20lb Fireline. It casts well, smooth and more than enough drag. Handle 4 big blues very well. I really like the eva form handle, time will tell if it will hold up in the salt, but it should since some rods use eva foam for rear and fore grips. Very much like its little brothers, the battle, sargus and fierce. Same design and concept, but with extra bearings, a little more drag, a little lighter all depending on same size models throughout the lineup and line capacity rings. Not sure if its worth the extra $30-$40 over the battles because of an extra bearing or two, for a beginner that extra cash could go to a better rod or lures, but I'm a Penn junkie and had to have the reel.

Nice reel, however with the spool being cut to loose a few weight. I find while retrieving the line, sand and salter enter the reel which causes more cleaning time, and may cause the reel to break down faster. I would use the extra money to buy the SpinfisherV. I have the 6500LL, which is an awesome reel.
ProsGreat casting distance, and look great
ConsMore cleaning time due to the spool's holes.

Is this a good trout reel in the smaller sizes? Which size for large trout and/or steelhead? Will use 8-10lb mono and and med light rod 7.5 to 8.5 ft length.
The Penn Conflict 2000 would pair well with a 7 1/2 ft to 8 1/2 ft rod fishing for large trout and steelhead.

I want to put a conflict on the Trevala rod 6' 6 medim action spinning rod. I like the 5000 for the aluminum gear and the metal body? Would the 4000 or 5000 be better? The 5000 has more of the quality I am looking for but because I have not held it I do not know if it would be to heavy for the rod. Its for jigging for cod - sea bass - throwing some sp minnows in the river.
The 4000 might be more comfortable due to the lighter weight but, you will give up line capacity and drag. The 5000 is the way to go.

Hi, I wolder if the 8000 would be fine for 11' MH rod for inshore casting? Thanks
It depends how you are fishing. If you are throwing bait, it would be fine. If you are throwing lures / metals, it will be tiring as it is a large and heavy reel.

Would you recommend the 4000 or 5000 for surf casting, lures only, on an 8' medium-heavy fast action stick? Target: Striped Bass, Blue Fish, Weak Fish etc NJ Coast.
On an 8' rod, I would recommend a Conflict 5000. The Conflict 4000 might be too small to balance comfortably on the rod.

from Murrells Inlet, SC asked:
October 24, 2013
Marshes, inlets, and jetties around South Carolina coast for red drum, sea bass, spot tails, sheeps head, flounder, etc. - which reel do you recommend? How does this compare to the Penn Battle series?
The Conflict is a little lighter and has an extra roller bearing to enhance the smoothness of the reel. The Conflict also offers a heavy drag system between comparable sizes in the Battle series. We would recommend a 5000 or 6000 size reel for 7 to 8 foot rods. If you are looking for an 9 to 10 ft rod the 6000 to 8000 size reel would be best for that combination depending on the the weight and ratings of the rod.

Hi What kinda setup or combo would you guys offer with a penn conflict 8000 reel?? I'm very much interested in the conflict 8000 but I need a rod to match it say 6" or so. Can I use it for salt water deep sea fishing, I mean catching groupers, tuna and so on?
We currently do not offer the Penn Conflict in a pre built combination. However, we do have rods that would match up with that reel with the backbone you are looking for. Check out Penn's Bluewater Carnage Jigging rods. They are available in sizes ranging from 5'6" to 7'. The shorter rods would be able to handle heavier fighting fish.

Fishing mostly back bay and inlet Jersey shore, fluke, blues , strippers. Using 20-30 lb braided line. Which reel would be best ? Thanks
Either the 3000 or 4000 Penn Conflict would work great on a 6 to 7ft medium to medium heavy rod.
