Penn Battle 3 Reel Buying Guide
Here is where you will learn all about the sizes we sell and their basic applications.
Penn Battle 2500 Reel – Is a smaller sized fishing reel ideal for inshore fishing styles. The 2500 model will excel for most lake and river fishing applications. We suggest matching to a 6-7ft fishing rod with supported line ratings between 3-6kg.
The drag grade of the Battle 2500 reel is considered moderate. So, it can withstand some hard battles from bream, bass and flathead through to sooty grunter and mangrove jack.
Penn Battle 3000 Reel – Is perfect for demanding style inshore lake and river fishing. The 3000 battle mimics the applications of the 2500 size along with a more generous line capacity.
Our suggestions are to match with a 6-7ft fishing rod with line ratings between 4-8kg for various forms of heavy inshore fishing as per the 2500 size.
Penn Battle 4000 Reel – makes an inspiring option for light offshore. It’s a reel capable of fishing shallow reefs, flats and bays for snapper and other reef sports fish. Back inshore, the Battle 4000 will be more than capable in lakes, rivers and enclosed waters for murray cod, barra, fingermark, school jewfish, queenfish and other outsized freshwater or saltwater fish.
Battle 4000 Reels additionally make an excellent choice for light-mid class rock and beach fishing. Fishing for whiting, dart, salmon, tailor, bream, flathead and drummer will be little challenge.
We suggest fishing rod sizes of between 6-7ft for light offshore or 6-8ft for heavy inshore. Many rods rated between 4-10kg will make terrific options for either approach. If surf or rock fishing, go easy and pick rods between 8ft to 10ft 6 inch in length that don line rating up to 5kg. Since the 4000 reel is only medium in physical size, it will balance better on longer rods with a lighter class.
Penn Battle 5000 Reel – represents the same relevance as the size 4000. The only significant difference is line capacity is enhanced. Physical size grade isn’t much larger. Therefore, go by the same suggestions we have provided for the 4000 size in terms of rod choice. Of course, especially if using braided lines you could ramp up the rating of rod you choose to purchase if you need to.
Penn Battle 6000 Reel – Now, we are starting to talk larger physical size. Penn Battle 6000 Reels make an excellent all-round rock, beach and offshore boat reel for a wide range of saltwater target fish. Snapper, mulloway, kingfish, cobia, tailor, small tuna, mackerel, mahi-mahi and several northern reef species are just a couple of names we can rattle off where the size 6000 is capable of challenge.
Offshore on your boat, fish the Battle 6000 with a 6ft to 7ft 6 inch rod with line rating between 8-24kg for best performance. From the rocks or beaches fish with an 8-13ft rod rated up to 15kg.
Penn Battle 8000 Reel – Like other sizes in this series where applications cross over, the 8000 is no different. With an 8000, the same concepts will apply as indicated for the 6000 model. However if you want to fish harder off the beach or rocks you can always step your rod rating up a notch and match to a 24kg rated model if desired.
Penn Battle 10000 Reel – The ultimate kingsized spinning reel for beach, rock and offshore fishing. Holds stacks of line in heavy strains. Perfect for targeting tuna, kingfish, jewfish, mackerel, Giant Trevally, shark and an endless list of other fish in the same class. Fish on 12-15ft beach rods or short boat rods with appraised ratings upto 37Kg.
