With the launch of the new Penn Battle II Spinning Reels happening in a few weeks, Penn was kind enough to let me play with some of the Penn Battle 2 Spinning Reels. The original series was and still is extremely popular. There is not another series of spinning reels on the planet where you get more for the money. I like to say that Penn Battle Reels are best bang for your buck. The Penn Battle II is even better!
The main changes or advantages that the new Battle II Reels have are all sealed bearings, a larger line roller and better cosmetics. Will all sealed ball bearings and some tweaks to the body, Penn has drastically reduced the potential for failure. The larger line roller will reduce line twist, which is great.
