Penn Wrath Reel Buying Guide
Given that there are several sizes for sale, It’s only valid if we help you purchase the correct size. To do this we have created a short buying guide to detail the sizes available, their principal uses and rods that we suggest to match. We will do so by classifying the sizes into small, medium and large.
Small Size Class Models: In the wrath fishing reel series, we sell two models that we classify as little. For inshore river, lake and other light styles of fishing the 2500 or 3000 sizes present as the ideal option. Perfect for whiting, bream, bass, flathead, trout, perch and many other small-scale freshwater or saltwater fish.
Either of the smaller size Penn Wrath reels will pair to most rods appraised between 3-6kg. For inshore fishing 6ft to 7ft rods are a clear choice, especially in Uglystik brand.
Medium Size Class Models: Size 4000 or 5000 are two options for sale, which represent an excellent choice for heavy inshore fishing. You can fish up north for queenfish, barra and other northern species or fish south for murray cod, mulloway, snapper and a host of other fish, freshwater or saltwater.
Either size in the medium range will likewise excel for medium beach, rock and offshore boat fishing applications.
Ideally, we suggest fishing rods appraised between 5-10kg which measure around 6-8ft for heavy inshore or light offshore. Should you fish the beach or rocks the Wrath 4000 or 5000 will pair well with many 8-10ft rods also rated between 5-10kg.
Large Size Class Models: You’ll have offshore boat fishing, surf or rock fishing covered with either the 6000 or 8000 sizes. They’re big reels designed to tackle big fish. Wrestle kingfish, snapper, mulloway, salmon, mackerel and more. Pair with 6-7ft heavy boat rods rated 10-15kg plus or on 10-14ft surf rods 10-24kg.
