Penn Quality
It's a Penn Reel and I've yet to be disappointed by any of the Penn reels that I have. As others have said, smooth drag and feels good on the rod. So far has lived up to the quality I expect from Penn products.

Good reel for the price
Used it once so far and it's worked flawlessly for stripers. Great drag and solid action with no body flex. We'll see how it holds up in the long run.

The Penn Conflict is an outstanding reel in every respect.
Price wise the Conflict series is between the Battle II series and the much higher priced Slammer series of spinning reels. Action, drag and ruggedness makes the Conflict series a great buy.

Good looking reel for the price
The conflict 3000 by Penn is a good looking light weight reel for the cost. It handles well but out of the box the bail needed oil and the internal grease was too dense and caused it to be more difficult to operate than it should be. I stripped the grease out and replaced it with quantum hot sauce grease and it performed in a optimum capacity. It‚€™s a very fast gear ratio and you have to consciously slow yourself down to work smaller jigs and lures properly. I‚€™ve only had it a few weeks so another review should be made after giving it some time to break in and see how it endures some regular use.
ProsLight weight, solid construction.
ConsGear ratio too high for the type of reel. Original lubes were not the best application. Drag ok but not great. Too soon to review properly.

Exactly as advertised
Haven't had a chance to put on rod and field test yet, but came exactly as advertised and should hold up well if it is like my similar Penn spinning reels.

Great Price
Replacing two Penn Battle II reels with these and hoping for better results. The Battle II reels both seized up last season even with what I considered proper rinsing, etc.

Fishing for Striper in the N.E. off Cape Cod. These look like they'll work nicely but I'll let you know if I find otherwise.

Tight Lines!

Good reel for the price
I got this reel when they had a two for one special and for that price it has been great so far. Heavier than the other big name reels but it looks and feels pretty solid and tough.
ProsAll metal body, smooth
ConsLooks like same would get inside pretty easy

What rod would pair well with this reel for fishing the Texas coast, for trout, reds, flounder and butterfly drum, using 1/16 to 1/4 ounce jig heads for plastic and spoons?
1 Answer
I'd suggest a medium light G Loomis E6X inshore or G Loomis Greenwater. Also the St. Croix Mojo Inshore, Tidemaster, or Avid inshore in the light or medium light models.
