The only minor issue I've come across is the bail sometimes snaps shut on a hard cast but you can prevent that. Once you open the bail and before you cast, spin the spool just until it wants to stop against the auto-bail-close mechanism. This prevents momentum from building up before u flick a hard cast.
Anyways this is a solid reel at this price point. If properly maintained I dont see why I couldn't get an easy 10+ years out of it.
- Feels like quality materials, looks cool
- Bail may want to snap shut on a hard cast but can be prevented by technique or modifications if you feel froggy.
- light and strong
The main differences between the Penn Battle III and the Penn Fierce IV, is the Battle has 6 BB and uses Penn's CNC Gear Technology for the ultimate in precisely machined gears. The Fierce has just 5 BB and uses Penn's Techno-Balanced rotor which gives smooth retrieves. Both reels will do the job in saltwater, just the Battle is going to be a bit smoother reel.
