The new series of Penn Battle II reels are one of the most affordable and value for quality reels that I have come across as a retailer of fishing gear in Australia.
One standout feature is that you actually get a full metal body reel for well under $200!
What makes a metal body so good? Well not only does it make the Penn Battle a super durable reel for the fisho that might put it under a little bit of punishment such as a rock fisherman, it also allows the gears to form a much better alignment resulting in smoother and more powerful operation.
Another standout feature of the Penn Battle is the rubber ring that sits around the spool. Penn Reels call it “Superline Spool” and right so as it means that unlike traditional methods if you are the type of fisho that loves a good capacity of braid then now there is no longer a need to use backing to lock the line onto the spool. How many of you have had problemsin the past where you have tied braid direct to the spool only to find out that it slips and you lose drag? Well Penn have solved that issue with the rubber ring on the Penn Battle Reels spool.
Penn Battle Reels come in several sizes to choose from as follows:
Penn Battle 2500 – is asmall sized fishing reel that is going to match well to a 6-7ft rod rated around 2-5kg so trout, bass, bream, whiting anglers are going to love this reel.
See more info about the Penn Battle 2500 Reel.
Penn Battle 3000 – Still a small reel this size is going to suit rods that are around 6ft to 7.5 foot in length – line rating around 3-7kg but what’s more interesting about this size isthat you could also use it on a light luderick rod up to around 10ft also.
See more info on the Penn Battle 3000 Reel.
Penn Battle 4000 – Now we’re getting to the midsized reel that will offer a fair bit of versatility in the fact that you could use this reel as heavy estuary fishing reel to chase tailor or perhaps a small jewfish, you could use it for chasing barramundi or mangrove jack up north, or you could use it as a light surf or offshore fishing reel.
See more information on the Penn Battle 4000 Reel.
Penn Battle 6000 – This is where we are starting to get into a large size reel. Where I would recommend one to use a Penn battle 6000 is on a boat offshore to chase snapper and other reef
fish or perhaps a kingfish, bonito, salmon or tailor on the surface. Same goes for beach and rock fishing – this reel would be the ideal size for chasing all your favourite surf and rock fish species.

Penn Battle 8000 – is the beast in the series. So where would you use such a reel? Offshore boat enthusiasts, surf and rock fishos will appreciate this model to be a decent size for holding a good line capacity from mid-heavy line class. Go ahead and use this size reel to target small tuna, kingfish, amberjack, dolphinfish, large reef fish and more.

These tough reels come with 5+1 ball bearings, aluminium bail wire, and quality aluminium spool and have advanced engineering resulting in a reel that offers impressive quality for money.
