Would not buy this product again
Used twice. Let my friend us it and she dropped it in the surf once. It was not sealed well enough to avoid sand getting in and gumming up the bale release sprint mechanism. Not what I would have expected from a "sealed" reel.
Only way I can get it to work now is by the removing the bale release mechanism inside the reel and flip the bale manually.
Reel was less the 6 months old.
Best reel out there for the price.
I got a 4000 and a 5000 battle 2 I use them on all kinds of fish they never let me down.
Saltwater kills the Penn Battle
I have tried 3 of these reels for light saltwater use and washed and oiled the reels after every outing. These reels do not hold up and despite other reviews there is nothing sealed about the penn battle. Saltwater can get to every moving component of the reel with no problem. If you want a decent saltwater reel , definitely spend the extra cash to get a Penn Spinfisher. The Penn Battle is true Junk.............Very dissatisfied and I would give it a ZERO STAR RATING IF POSSIBLE.
Anti reverse quit working
Most of the time just casting and normal use it works till you try to set the hook.. very frustrating tried to return it but of course it's not under warranty been over a year. But it's would be a great real one of my favourite.
Best Saltwater Reel
Completely Sealed and is ideal if your getting into saltwater fishing
anti-reverse bearing not working
bought this real two years ago and the ati-reverse does not work. the handle will go backwards on this model. took it to oli damons to get fixed.
