Decent reel for the price point

I have a couple of reels at different price categories and this one fits right at it's price point. You can put a decent amount of braid on it and it's over all good striped bass reel

5000 series perfect ffrom stripers to tarpon
March 24, 2020
I just recently purchased the Battle 2 in the 5000 series for striper fishing in New Jersey. Great product for calm weather fishing, may not be the best for surf fishing because it isn't as sealed as some of the higher grade Penn reels. I have also done tarpon fishing with this feel and it performed great, enough drag to fight 100 lb + tarpon and made the experience more enjoyable.
ConsWater seal not as trustworthy as higher grade so may get damaged in surf fidhing

Great reel for inshore fishing. I have two of them. I use quite often for flounder fishing. Great for all around inshore and near shore.

A tank
January 13, 2020
These are tanks and they work well. They are pretty smooth and have good line capacity. I know several charter capts who use these religiously for bottom fishing and life lining.
Proseasy to maintain, tons of drag, carbon drag, all alum body that won't flex,
ConsThey are heavy.

4/5 stars a little heavy but a tank
January 13, 2020
I have two of these and a 6k. They are a bit heavy but are solid reels. No flex and so far no issues with the grinding or loss or smoothing due to salt water intrusion. I know a couple of charter capts who use these for bottom fishing and live lining rockfish who swear by them. It has carbon drag with 25 lbs of drag that you'll never need but it's there.
ConsA little heavy.

I have the 1000 that I use for inshore snapper, perch, and schoolie stripers this thing has been pretty faithful to me. It feels very light but i’m not sure if almost every 1000 reel feels like that but phew it’s an amazing reel from a great company

The 4K reel is durable, has been fished saltwater for the last 3 years and is still flawless. Not as buttery smooth as other reels on the market, but it's always ready for a battle.

Great for the price, a bit heavy though

I've got 3 of these reels, in rod reel sets, and we use them as our casters, bottom fishing and in a pinch have used them for trolling. They are good reels, a bit heavy but work well and a good values for the money. The Fury is also a good reel to consider when looking at these. It's a model down but also less expensive. There are smoother reels out there but the Penns are pretty tough and are easy to take care of. If weight is an issue then you might want to look for an alternative. Otherwise these are good long lasting reels that I've seen in a lot of charter boats.
Prosvalue for the money, tough and proven reels
Consthey are heavy

I’ve used the fierce, sargus, battle and now the battle II as my lighter tackle and kayak reels. It does the job well, has a great drag and hasn’t failed me yet.

Great reel Penn never disappoints

I got this real in the 8500 series and love it. Paired it with a 12-foot battalion surf rod. One of my first bigger surf setups I use for casting dates for land-based shark fishing it has handled up to a 7'3" lemon shark no problem at all. Definitely recommend if you're looking for a great real but don't want to drop too much money on a Spinfisher V or Slammer in the same reel class.
