We have been very impressed with the lure sized version of the Penn Battle II so we have introduced this larger 8000 size. This 8000 version is ideal for the shore angler looking for a tough reel for fishing more demanding marks or for deliberately targeting large fish. It is also suitable for use on the boat. Both for inshore downtide fishing as well as those who are appreciating the strengths of fixed spools as a reel choice for uptiding.
It is built with a full metal body and a HT100 drag system which you can trust not to let you down. The Penn Battle II has been engineered to cast further, achieve higher drag pressure and resist corrosion better than ever before.
The use of HT-100 Versa-Drag washers in the spool have allowed Penn to use both sides of each drag washer giving the Battle II higher max drags, more range and smoother start-ups than the competition.
