Penn Battle II Spinning Reel Product Review

Penn is a reputable company that is known for its wide selection of quality products.

The first thing to know about the Battle models is that they are considered mid-range when it comes to price. They aren’t the cheapest reels out there by any stretch, but they also won’t break the bank. For the money, we think that they deliver exceptional value mostly in the form of their quality construction.

The significant parts of these reels are made from solid metal. The body, side plate, and rotor are all constructed from high-quality metal for durability and ideal weight. While heavy-duty parts are a priority in some parts of the reel, it’s clear that being lightweight and sleek is the goal with other parts such as the drag washers.

The washers and some other small parts are made of lightweight, but durable carbon material while the 5 ball bearings within are made from stainless steel.

With a mix of heavyweight durable main components and some smaller lightweight parts within, this reel is an excellent choice for those who are looking for a versatile reel at a lower cost.
