Penn with Refinement!
August 2, 2021
I bought the 4k HS spontaneously and have no regrets. I already had a Stradic FL 4k and a Spinfisher IV 5500 LC and this reel feels like the middle of the road between the two. While not quite as smooth as a Stradic, it is sturdier feeling. Likewise, with the Spinfisher it is not as tanky but much more refined feeling...and lighter. The line lay is excellent and it cast wonderfully. The only hickup I have experienced is that when I spooled up with 300 yards of 20lb. braid as the capacity says, I get a wind-knot early on but after I cut about 25/30 yards it does not come back. It maybe just a the line I'm using or I might need to add/subtract a spacer. Happened twice but I am changing my line to 30 lb. to see if that alleviates the issue. Could be it just needs slightly less line. Not a big issue as there is still plenty of capacity even if I had to cut more. This is now my go-to Jetti reel. Best Penn product I own and would highly recommend if you want something refined but tough feeling. Cheers!
Pros
  • Light weight with Penn toughness
  • Line lay is Excellent
  • Smoothest Penn Spinning reel I have experienced
  • I like the larger EVA handle knob on the HS
  • Will handle many fishing techniques
Cons
  • Bit on the pricey side (but worth it in my opinion)

Awesome reel for casting metals at Spanish, blues, and false albacore. Great speed and one of the smoothest penn reels I've ever used, not clunky at all.

Penn Clash 2 - I love this reel!
May 11, 2021
Paired a 1000 series with a St. Croix Premier rod.... what a sweet little setup!
It's good looks are what caught my eye, but it casts great and it's smooth on the retrieve. Brass pinion and aluminum main gear, and the HT100 drag is really nice and smooth. I am a fan of Penn's CNC gears. Caught trout and crappie on the first trip, and the reel was flawless. I love this reel, and I would absolutely buy another!
Pros
  • Looks great
  • Aluminum frame
  • Casts great
  • Smooth retrieve
  • HT 100 drag
  • CNC gearing
  • Sturdy
Cons
  • My only con is that I don't have two of these reels!

Excellent Reel
December 15, 2020
Got the 3000 HS. Beautiful and great reel. Have this reel and rhe Back Bay 3000 both with 15 lb braid to use for surf fishing and CA Aquaduct stripers. Both are excellent reels but the BB is much smotheer, as a matter of fact a lot smoother than most of my reels and high end reels but I will get the Clash 2 again no problem.
Pros
  • Quality
  • Sealed

Penn Clash 2 - CLAII2000
September 12, 2020
The 2000 series Clash 2 is only the second Penn reel I have ever owned (Shimano Boy). I purchased a 3000 when the Clash 2 had just been released. These reels are monsters/tanks. I got them both for wade fishing. 3000 salt- 2000 fresh. They are amazingly SMOOTH! They cast great and they hold lots for line. I love'em!!! IMHO the clash 2 and Stradic are the BEST 200.00 reels made.
Pros
  • 1.. Tough 2.. Super smooth 3.. Cast great 4.. Holds a lot of line 5.. One of the best 200.00 reels made
Cons
  • May be to heavy for large mouth bass fisherman. I can cast it all day no problem!

What a nice reel!
August 14, 2020
Been fishing with Penn reels for over 30 years and the Clash II is the nicest inshore spinning reel Penn has ever made! I now have a 2500, 3000 and a 4000. All three reels are a blast fishing the flats! Super smooth, plenty of drag and near perfect line lay. Great job Penn! Anyone want to buy my original Clash reels? Haha!
Pros
  • Read above
Cons
  • So far none!

Ordered the Clash 2 4000 and I'm looking for a surf rod to throw anything from top water plugs to bucktails for river stripers. Any suggestions?

Michael,

The Penn Clash 4000 spinning reel will pair nicely with St.Croix Mojo Inshore spinning rod JIS76MHF for throwing plugs and bucktails to Stripers in the river.  Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.

Besides cosmetics,  and I did see the original Clash has a l8 faster retrieve, what other differences are there in the Clas and ClashII? THX


1 Answer
The main differences are the Clash II has a hydrophobic line roller bearing, instant anti-reverse, and the new Clutch Armor System, which helps keep important components in the reel better protected against the elements.

Is the Clash II series sealed as good as the Spinfisher VI series?
1 Answer
While the Clash series is a very well designed water resistant reel it, does not have the IPX5 seals in it like the spinfisher does
