The Battle II BTLII8000LCLLEU is based on the Battle Longcast but with the addition of Penn's Live liner feature. The Live Liner lets you to set a free spool tension separate from the main drag allowing a fish to run off with the bait without risk of dragging rod and reel into the sea. This is very good for targeting smoothhounds and close range bass.
The Lightweight and corrosion-resistant graphite body construction allows it to maintain precision gear alignment under severe punishment. The Longcast spool and the slow oscillation system provides great line lay and casting distances.
As more 'rough ground' anglers grow to appreciate the easy casting and fast recovery qualities of fixed spools then the long casting and rugged build of the Battle II LC are going to find favour on these tough venues.
