Fantastic Reel
You can count on quality and reliability from Penn reels and this one hits the mark. Smooth operation and great feel gives excellent touch while fishing.

Awesome reel for price!
Great reel. It's light, it's got a strong bail, and the drag is very smooth. Another dependable Penn reel. This is not a sealed reel so common sense dictates that you don't submerge it in salt water. Just rinse it off and keep it clean it will last quite awhile. A great reel as long as you don't need to worry about saltwater intrusion.
ProsLight, good drag
ConsNot sealed.

Great saltwater reel
Perfect reel coupled with an Allstar Paraflex 7' medium spinning rod it can tackle most of the local species we fish for on the Chesapeake Bay.

love this reel
The Clash is my go to reel for inshore striper fishing. It is smooth, durable, lays line very well and is super light. I match it with black hole 701L and can fish all day without fatigue.
Prosvery light, durable,
Consnone after well over 100 hours of fishing it in 2017.

Best Plugging Reel I've Owned In Years
I split my fishing time between the NY/NJ surf and Captiva Island. I need a reel that's going to subdue cow stripers, gorilla blues, bull reds, monster snook, jack, spanish mack...you get the picture.

This is THE reel for the job. Spooled with 30lb superline, it is smooth casting, fast retrieving, and has a drag that tires fish out fast.

I've been a Penn fisherman my whole life. This is one of the best Penn reels I've ever owned
ProsDrag Weight Capacity Handle (Rubberized is great in cold fall fishing)
ConsNone

Outstanding Reel
I've used the Penn Clash since it first came out and it still remains my favorite reel. I also own the a Slammer but I pick the clash for inshore and offshore. Best reel you can buy for the money you wont be disappointed.
Prossmooth drag very light can spool a lot of line

Great
I have the 2500 size and have fished it heavy for a year. It still works good. Only issue I'm having is wind knots, I'm using the rated braid # and I can't keep a full spool
ProsSmooth Good drag Light
ConsWind knots

Excellent Drag
This reel has a very smooth and strong drag. The reel was used for massive rays in Ocean City with the drag cranked to max and the reel handled the stress, heat, and extended runs like a champ. The reel has no issues with casting, no wind knots. The reel also took 500yds of Berkley 65lb Pro Spec line when I spooled it, I was very impressed. The reel has an excellent spool capacity and with 30lbs of drag plus a machine brass gear, this reel is a winner as far as mid priced reels go.
ProsDrag, line capacity, ease of use, castibility, weight for the size.
ConsNone.
