Rated 5 out of 5 by BigGreen Penn Battle 4000
This is a really great reel. I can say I have put it to the test with a few 45 plus inch bull reds, with the Blair Wiggins flats blue 7 foot 2 inch rod and Penn Battle 4000 with 40 pound braid. The reel is a beast with a smooth drag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joey53, Hopewell, VA Excellent Quality Reel!
I used this new reel and this product is smooth, quiet, and works really well. Spend more and buy this product, LIKE I DID, and leave the others behind! Well worth the price, and enjoyable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by al8995 Awesome reel
This is a step up from the sargus and fierce. Its smooth and the drag is perfect. Ive had it out a few times and it seems very durable and reliable. For the money you cant beat it. I have the 4000 with 20lb braid for inshore. I could even drop to the 3000 without losing much.

Rated 4 out of 5 by gb8635 good reel after 3 exchanges
I have the penn battle 4000. It took 3 returns to dicks to get one that the bail didn't slam shut, or I didn't get wind knots. The one I have now works perfect. I have 20 pound power pro on it and have casted about 100 times. Just keep trying until you get one that works. Well built reel can't really speak off the drag, because I haven't really caught anything with size as of yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CastingontheWeekends Smooth Operator
I'm a long time weekend fisherman. I was looking for a reel for Surf Casting on Long Island and was prepared to spend around $200. Saw this reel in the case and compared it with other Penn's and Shimano's.The features and operation were comparable for less money. The next day on my fourth cast hooked into a Blue with a Hopkins. The action and the drag of the reel was very smooth. It was fun hooking into him and then letting him go. Nice reel so far.
