Similar to the battle series. Feels like a quality metal reel. Would use for freshwater. Clean it off after if you use at the beach.
good all around

Versatility and Quality CLASH5000
November 18, 2021
This Reel is a reliable workhorse, that can be fished in many ways, and can take the pounding the mighty pacific ocean dishes out.

I fish this reel off of boats for rockfish and lingcod and it has the line capacity to fish deeper reef, and the saltwater spray has not effected it yet (bought 4 years ago). I also fish cut bait for big rays and sharks and this reel has the power to stop em', and the line capacity for runners. I handle rays in the 50-60lb pound rang with ease. I can also get out on the rocks and not worry about the conditions when using my clash.

The thing just won't die, 100% worth my money.

Amazing reel

I’ve put this 4k size reel through torture basically and it still kicks butt. From 12+ Lb bluefish to 30lb Striper and numerous runoffs from tarpon in Florida, it still works. The tarpon burned up the drag a little but some penn grease helped that

Lightest Penn at 4000's, I've ever owned!

Penn products have been stepping up their game for the last couple of years... which is good :)

Powerful yet smooth (Smoothest spinning reel Penn I have) and built to last for a long time!

  • Smooth, Powerful and built like a tank, ohh! looks pretty cool too.
  • Noting noted as of the moment really happy with the purchase!!

I've been fishing various Penns for years now. Mostly older spinfishers and the battle 2. But this clash is nice. Decided to jump on the deal and give it a try. Definitely the smoothest Penn I've ever used. Quality drag that you expect from Penn. Overall a solid reel
  • Well built, good drag, smooth

Ordered the awesome PENN CLASH 4000, called the next day to add a spool full of braid and to my delight it was already shipped!! Not only is that awesome, the reel IS SO NICE. It looks so good,, really something to look at ,all the weight saving cuts and carbon fiber accent the classic penn gold. Looks awesome and the performance as good and better than you could expect. Extra smooth drag plenty of stopping power and those CNC'ed gears are so smooth and strong. It has done the trick on Pompano and redfish so far. And they have been upper slot red's. Reel will work for many applications ordering another 2 for bait rods!!! Awesome purchase from TACKLE DIRECT and A STAPLE BRAND LIKE PENN

This reel is great I use it for redfish and trout on eastern coast works great. Also a good Sabiki reel.
  • Very strong built reel with good saltwater resistance
  • Not as smooth as some shimanos competitors once strung (not really much of a problem though)

Great Spinning Reel for the Money

I have been using this reel in the surf since Penn introduced a couple of years ago, putting it on a 10 foot GSB. I have tamed teen size bluefish with a drag that is smooth. It has stood up to sand and surf and has not failed me yet. It holds a fair amount of 30 or 40 lbs power pro. I liked it so much I got a second one to put on a 11 foot GSB. I highly recommend this reel for both 10 and 11 foot rods.
  • It is light and strong, holds a fair amount of 30 or 40 pound braid, and the drag is super smooth.
  • None yet!

Can i order the Penn Clash 2500 pre-spooled with 15lb power pro?
1 Answer
The Penn Clash can be shipped pre spooled to you. You would just have to purchase the braided line and we will spool the reel for you.
