Penn Battle II Spinning Reel
Penn revamped their best selling Battle spinning reel series, introducing the new Penn Battle II. The Penn Battle II offers attractive cosmetics, durable design, and silky smooth drag! The Penn Battle II series is everything the original Penn Battle was and more!
The upgrades found in the Penn Battle II:
- 5+1 Sealed Stainless Bearings - The Penn Battle II has five sealed bearing and one anti-reverse bearing offering enhanced corrosion resistance. The Battle had shielded bearings.
- More Drag Performance - The Penn Battle II features an upgraded drag (same drag that is found on the Penn Conflict Reel Series) which has keyed carbon fiber (Penn's famous HT-100) drag washers. The keyed drag utilizes both sides of the drag washer, improving drag performance (max drag) from 15-50%.
- Improved Line Management - Line Capacity Rings (divide the spool into thirds, shown in reel photo on left) on the spool visually allow the angler to know how much line is on the spool. The spool dimensions were also adjusted and a new line roller bushing was added for better line lay.
- Penn introduced the 2500, a new size specifically for inshore technical light tackle fishing.
