The Penn Battle 6000 Spinning Reel would be recommended for anyone who wishes to fish the coastal waters or the inlets of the low country. The overall package of this spinning reel has an excellent balance and is strong while still having a smooth action.
The Penn Battle BTL6000 Spinning Reel gives the angler the advantage, producing catches instead of just hook ups. The full metal one-piece body and sideplate maintain precise gear alignment under heavy loads. And on the inside are more fishing fighting features like the Techno- balanced rotor that provides a smooth retrieve and won't compress under load. Six shielded stainless steel ball bearings plus an anti-reverse bearing add to the performance. The main shaft is stainless steel for added corrosion protection and durability. The Penn Battle BTL6000 Spinning Reel is available at J&H Tackle.
