The Penn Clash CLA3000 Spinning Reel is one of the best inshore saltwater light tackle reels on the market today featuring an incredible technology/price ratio. Users of the CLA3000 love the incredibly smooth retrieve thanks in part to both 8 fully sealed ball bearings and the brand new CNC machined aluminum gearing system that Penn has proudly featured in these reels – we hope it continues to be featured in Penn spinners in the future! Here in the Northeast, the CLA3000 will find its home in the shallow flats of the South Shore bays as well as on the North Shore in harbors and shoals – this reel is a Kayaker’s dream! Being both light (10.2 oz.) and powerful (15# drag) the CLA3000 is perfectly suited for both bucktailing fluke and throwing light lures at cruising stripers or albies. Across the country, anglers can handily use this reel for any inshore species up to about 30# - think redfish, snook, speckles, bonefish, etc. The Penn Clash CLA3000 Spinning Reel features a lightweight carbon fiber rotor for added smoothness, and the machined and anodized braid ready spool will accommodate about 150 yards of 30# braid. Pair the CLA2500 with a 6’6”-7’ M/MH fast action graphite rod for optimal performance.

Just got my reel today and what can I say, it's a masterpiece from penn nice and light and you can feel the torque and how much power this reel has, and what's so nice about jandh is that I pre ordered the reel and it's an instant 10 percent off and just have to wait till its in stock, and I also ordered a power pro super 8 slick(20lb) to go with the reel and what so nice about them is that they spooled the line in the reel without any charge wow thanks, I just have to get the reel in the water to test it and I know it's going to perform well.

I purchased the CL5000 late last year so I've only used a few times but I really love it so far. Very smooth and very well built. I did make one mistake when I purchased it. I purchased it from Penn directly. Not a good idea. It took three weeks to be delivered and the price was higher than J&H tackle. I won't make that mistake again. Stupid Hurts!
One of the lightest and smoothest spinning reels I've ever owned. I've been a Penn guy for 25 years and they really hit a home-run with this design. Excellent reel!
