Transfer more power through the gears to your big catch on the other end of the line with oversized EVA handle knobs.

Great reel but....
November 13, 2020
As a lifelong Penn fan I was excited to get my new Penn Battle III DX5000, I’ve got it spooled up with 400 plus yards of 20lb braid and mounted on new Battalion II 12-20. Drag is smooth and frame light and strong. Not a fan of these new black handles Penn is using though, but not a big deal. One thing that troubles me is that the side bearing cover is made out of black plastic? These have long been made out of metal, it’s light and cheap and that part of the reel is prone to getting bumped on things, if that cracks and breaks there’s direct access to the side bearing. I’ll be packing reel with grease on not needing access very often but still. Penn should know that consumers would gladly pay an extra $1 to have superior components.
ProsLightweight, strong. Smooth
ConsBlack plastic side bearing cover.

Is this reel smooth under pressure? My first penn reel was not and I was wondering if all penn reels were like that.
1 Answer
This is a very solid well designed reel, while i have not personally fished it so i cannot say with absolute certainty, i would assume that this reel is very smooth under pressure with the brass gears and full metal construction.

What was your previous Penn reel you were having issues with?

What is the difference in the DX models over the regular Battle III model?
1 Answer
 The biggest difference is that Brass main gears are in every size of the Penn Battle III DX as opposed to the Battle III which only has the brass gearing in the 6k-10k models. The stronger gearing makes for a more robust and powerful reel.
