The Penn Battle II BTLII5000 Spinning Reel is the smallest of the big game Battles – It’s HT100 drag system pumps out 25 pounds of drag; a full 10 pounds heavier than the 4000 size, and can fit just about 300 yards of 40 pound braided line, if professionally spooled. The handle switches from the regular paddle to the power knob for some serious leverage. The Penn Battle II 5000 can be fished from a boat on a sturdy medium heavy to heavy action spinning rod, or a 9-10 foot medium action surf rod.

Purchased the Battle 2 in the 3000 size for light inshore fishing. Absolutely love it. For the price I don't think these reels can be beat.
Great reel for the money!
Bought the 6000 model. I put it on my 11 ft. 1 pc. Lamiglass rod. Works very well, as I knew it would! Thank You!!!
