Penn Pursuit II Spinning Reels are built for durability like all Penn reels. The body is made of lightweight, yet tough and corrosion-resistant graphite. Durable metal sideplates and a machined and anodized braid ready aluminum spool provide the strength to withstand the strain that braided lines put on a reel. Heavy-duty bail wire stays strong after getting knocked around on the jetties all night and Line Capacity Rings let the angler know at a glance when the spool is full, at 2/3rds capacity and 1/3rd capacity. Four shielded stainless steel bearings plus Instant Anti Reverse provide smooth cranking performance. The handle with new and improved knobs, can be configured for right or left hand retrieve.

Get what you pay for
It's bottom line, bearings got very rough in less than a yr. Rinsed after ea. use in fresh water. Money could be better spent.

THE ONLY ONE FOR EVERY TECHNIQUE IMAGINABLE
I received this great reel, and turned out to be the exact thing I needed to properly balance out a heavy power 8' boat rod. The reel was spooled up with about 305 yards of 50lb braid. Once I hit the water, every fish l saw became mine, this reel is on the top ten most wanted list of every fish that is yet to be caught. I hope that I will have many more wonderful years with this awesome beast of a spinning reel.
ProsStrength, smoothness, smooth drag, all of this at a very low price !!!!
ConsNo bail-less version?!? And also this t reel is not sealed like spinfisher v or torque. Do no submerge!

Great reel for the money
I bought this reel from tackle direct when it was on sale for $42.00. What can u expect from a cheap reel. The way I look at it is right now new it's working great. If it last 2 yrs I'm happy with that. U can't even get a reel serviced for that price. Long story short. Great starter reel or extra reel. Service was great and shipping was fast.
ProsCheap enough to replace Great new out of box

Bang for the buck reels!
Purchased a couple Penn pursuit II 5000 size reels to match up to 10' penn prevail surf rods. Have caught many fish on these and haven't had any issues chunking bait + 4oz weight. Casts are smooth and haven't had any issues with line lay (using 15lb mono). I'm gonna have to pick up some extra spools for braid to fish the Gulf sometime this year. Awesome reels for the money!!
ProsLooks great, good line lay, smooth drag
ConsNot a big fan of the handle design, but for the $$, it doesn't matter!

I like the weight of this reel, it is paired with an 8' rod. I enjoy the combo. Braid ready and I like the indicator rings.

I bought this reel and placed it on a surf rod that does not get used that much anymore just so my surf rod would have a reel if I needed it. Mainly used as a back up and a guest rod. I was suprised at how much quality when in to what is supposed to be a cheap reel. I placed 300 yards of 40lb power pro braid on the reel and it has pleny of room left for a good amount of shock leader probably 20 yards of 60lb shock leader. Reel feels smooth and drag system feels ok but is a little more quiet than I am used to.
ProsGood quality for a cheap reel
Consnone givin it's price range.
