Inspired by design innovations made possible through new technology, Penn introduces the improved Penn Battle II. Penn has added line capacity rings to let the angler know when the spool is properly filled. This ensures that the casts are not subject to excess line stripping from the spool, resulting in improved castability. This reel has enhanced corrosion resistance due to the improvements of using five sealed bearings and one anti-reverse bearing. The Battle II incorporates keyed carbon fibre washers in the HT-100 drag system that uses both sides of the drag washers and increases maximum drag by 15-50%. Many original Battle features remain in the Battle II, including the full metal body, sideplate and rotor; instant anti-reverse, heavy-duty aluminium bail wire and superline spool. Eight Battle II spinning reels are offered in 1000 to 8000 sizes. New to the line-up is the 2500 size designed for inshore/light braid applications.
