Conflict is smooth, casts great

I think this reel is very smooth, can handle with sufficient drag. It is light. Haven't had any of the problems that others have expressed with it seizing up....has always performed for me on a 8 1/2 foot old school ugly stik custom.

Fished 2 Penn Conflict 3000's side by side with a $49.00 Okuma Stratus 6 in the surf.
The Penns felt like boat anchors and both were seized up the next morning requiring an hour each to tear down and clean. The $49.00 Okuma required only a rinsing and is still going strong after 4 more adventures in the surf. Don't wast your money on the Conflict... my son now has 2 $140.00 catfish reels!!! ***RATING WOULD BE LESS THAN ONE STAR IF THAT WAS AN OPTION***
Pros???
ConsHeavy? They would be a great deal if you paid for reels by the pound.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
