The Penn Behemoth, ahem, I mean Penn Battle II BTLII8000 Spinning Reel is a true brute of a spinning reel. The HT100 drag system is pumping out 30 pounds of drag, more than enough to stop the run of any inshore species you can think of, even enough for some light surf sharking. The Battle II 8000 has 6 sealed ball bearings so whether you’re surf fishing or doing some deep vertical jigging, salt water is no match for the smoothness of the Battle II. With a massive braid capacity of 400 yards of 80# braid, just about any species is within your reach with the Penn Battle II BTLII8000 Spinning Reel.

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!!!
