About the Product
The PENN Battle II offers attractive cosmetics, durable design, and silky smooth HT-100 drag as just a few of the many reasons why so many anglers fish this reel. The Full Metal Body construction allows it to maintain precision gear alignment under severe punishment. With the Superline Spool™, no backing is needed because of the rubber gasket that keeps superlines from slipping. A great value for the price point.

What customers say about "Drag"
Penn Battle II 3000 (1338218) Spinning Fishing Reel
  • I used it regularly for one season and it served me well: the drag was smooth and I landed many fish with it.
  • The drag on all of my Battle II reels is fantastic and as the cheapest reel that has the HT-100 drag system, it’s a solid entry into the Penn family.
  • I think I've caught close to 50 fish with it already, and the drag has always been smooth. Great for fluorocarbon line!
  • Casts nicely and drag feels clean.
  • Works perfect for all your Midwest fishing needs. Even muskie if you set the drag right!

What customers say about "Features"
Penn Battle II 3000 (1338218) Spinning Fishing Reel
  • No certain I the idea of an automatic anti-reverse, but knew going in that was a feature of the reel. Like the heavy duty construction. Should last a long time, even using in salt water!
  • This reel is a workhorse. The body is totally aluminum, which gives it some weight, but I have finesse fished quite a few aluminum reels.
  • The reel feels very solid when you turn the handle with very little play.
  • This is a great reel. I love the looks, durability, line capacity, braid ready spool, and drag.
  • The spool can be more sturdy, it flexes when line is under tension causing clicking sound/action when jigging, drastically reducing sensitivity and hard to detect a bite.
Penn Battle II 4000 (1338219) Spinning Fishing Reel
  • It is pretty much perfect, right down to the handle because I have a crippled hand that can still handle the angle and size of the handle!
  • This is a great reel. I love the looks, durability, line capacity, braid ready spool, and drag.
  • The handle is very well designed and feels really nice.
  • Large spool. Cast great. Very smooth
  • My biggest problem is that the line doesn't go on the spool evenly.
