I own several of the Battle IIs in 2000/4000/5000/6000/8000 and can attest to their workmanlike build quality. They are solid - if a bit heavy - and should only require a freshwater rinse after a day of fishing. 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.
If you like throwing bait and waiting on big drag screaming strikes, choose from the 5000-8000 series. If you like throwing lures, I would stick to the smaller 1000-4000 series as there is a significant weight increase from 5000 and on.
There are much better reels for more money, but at the current price point, you’d be hard pressed to find a better real than a Penn Battle II. My favorites are the 4000 and 6000.
If you hardly ever fish and still want a quality reel for slightly less, look at the Penn Fierce line.
Only a 4 star review for the weight, for the intended use of these reels I feel like they could’ve cut down a bit throughout the entire range.
Attached is a picture of my Penn 6000 that has seen plenty of sharks, rays, and other big fish and only needed fresh water rinse and an annual re-grease due to my heavy use.
factory seal and make sure it hasn't been tampered with upon arrival.
I have an Abu Garcia Pro Max SP30 reel and comparing the 'dry spin' and 'feel' on both reels, the SP30 is smoother and is as solidly built as the PB II 2000. I then oiled it up with a drop of super reel oil on both the spool and handle bearing and it flew like a feather. I am very delighted indeed. One rather exceptional feature I like most about the PB II 2000 is the higher spinning ratio of 6.2:1, which not many spinning reel has.
I am pairing my Penn Battle II 2000 with an Ugly Stick Elite 6' 6" Ultralight rod (which I ordered here at the same time with this reel) and intend to spool it up with Kastking Copolymer 6lbs/0.2mm line. Will comment more after some field tests.
My older Penn reels are smooth and easy to reel, my Shims on reels are smooth and easy to reel.
I am not sure what Penn is doing but unless they address this issue this will be the last Penn spinning reel I will buy.
