The Penn Conflict 6000 fishing reel is nothing short of excellent for offshore boat fishing. It is also perfect for the rock and beach angler. Despite its large size it is surprisingly light weight in comparison to some other similar models which is always a blessing for long hours gripping a rod that always seems to become heavier as the day progresses. Although light, the Conflict 6000 loses nothing in robust fighting power. One can confidently hook an exceptional size Kingfish knowing the reel is well equipped for a prolonged fight with a missile. The 6000 sizing also provides you the strength you need to wrestle stubborn bottom dwellers into submission before they wrap you unceremoniously around the reef.
The Conflict series is an update on the Battle series. Penn R & D has provided weight reductions, drag weight increases as well as greater balance, castability and smoother retrieves. Whether you fish the beach, the rocks or afloat on your favourite vessel, the Penn Conflict 6000 is an essential piece of kit to ensure you maintain the upper hand in every duel with joy and confidence.
