Always TU for fishing!!!!

However, a bud and I bought two Battles two years ago (so they are in their 3rd saltwater season). Im very disappointed. Reels have not held up. Gears are a bit grindy, and there is rust on the bail which is a deal breaker for braid etc. Decision is still out until the end of this season but as of now, Im pretty disappointed (as all my previous reels were Penns and I loved them).

I would buy this reel if 1) I was using it in freshwater and 2) if it was around $40-$50.

Almost all my SW gear is Penn (1st gen spinfishers, 3rd gen spinfishers, SSV, Pursuit), but the battle never interested me.

I'll take a deal on a new Slammer though. But anyway, TU for fishing deals.

I need to spend more time fishing, and less buying fishing gear.

I'm looking for a nice lake ultralight setup for mostly small 2-3lb fish. I have a 2500 Shimano Stradic CI4 that I love and was considering picking up a 1000 series, along with maybe a Daiwa Presso rod, thoughts? Opinions?

Thanks

I love penn's new reels. I feel they are high quality. Great value. This is an all time low for these reels. I've had my battles for 2 years and fish salt in a kayak. I take care of my stuff excessively and they are holding up perfectly. In the $60s, this is a steal. Also look at the fierce IIs and the clash models.

Shame that you guys missed on the spinfisher sale, that's a much better reel than the battle. Not exactly water proof but far more resistant than the battle, which won't hold up well to saltwater. If you're fishing from the surf, consider spending a few bucks more for the spinfisher.

A helpful guide to seleting a reel.

How to choose the best fishing reel size for your needs (spin)

When you are looking through our fishing reels for sale you will need to keep in mind where you are likely to be using the reel. For example what may work quite well for rivers or lakes may not be the best fishing reel for saltwater fishing off a boat or from the rocks.

Section 1 - Small Spin Reels

Spinning Reel Size: (1000)

Suggested mono: 1-2kg (2-4lb)
Suggested Braid: 4-8lb
Common Applications (Guide only): Small fishing reel mostly suited for light fishing in lakes, rivers, bays, harbours etc.
Popular for fish type (most common species): Bream, Trout, Whiting.
Choosing a fishing rod to go with this size reel: - As the 1000 or 10 sized spinning reel is quite small, a rod you would typically pair this reel to is one with a length of around 6-7 foot that has a fishing line rating of anywhere between 1-4Kg.

Spinning Reel Size: (2000)

Suggested mono: 2kg-3kg (4-6lb)
Suggested Braid: 5-10lb
Common Applications (Guide only): Small fishing reel mostly suited for light fishing in lakes, rivers, bays, harbours etc.
Popular for fish type (most common species): Bream, Trout, Whiting, Bass, Flathead, Perch, Luderick.
Choosing a fishing rod to go with this size reel: A 2000 or 20 sized reel being a quite small reel ideally will suit a fishing rod between 6ft – 7ft 6 inches in length that has a line class rating somewhere between 2-5Kg.

Spinning Reel Size: (2500)

Suggested mono: 2.5kg-4kg (5-8lb)
Suggested Braid: 5-12lb

Suggested mono: 3kg-5kg (6-10lb)
Suggested Braid: 6-14lb

Popular for fish type (most common species): Bream, Bass, Flathead, Tarwhine, KG Whiting, Mangrove jack.
Choosing a fishing rod to go with this size reel: 3000 or 30 Sized spinning reels being of fairly light class would normally be most suitable for pairing up with a rod that is around 6-7ft 6 inches in length which has a line class between 3Kg-7Kg. you could also use this sized reel as a light weight blackfish reel on rods which are around 9-10ft rated to 4Kg.

Popular for fish type (most common species): Bream, Bass, Flathead, Tarwhine, KG Whiting, Mangrove jack.
Choosing a fishing rod to go with this size reel: 35/350/3500 is a reel size you should dedicate to pairing up on a rod that is for around 6-7ft in length that has a line class rating anywhere between 3-7Kg but this size will also be fine to use on a light 10ft rod that is rated to around 4Kgs if it is blackfish or whiting that you are chasing.

In terms of the rods line rating, generally if using monofilament you should be looking for a rod that is rated approximately in the range of 6-10Kg and if you are going to use braided fishing line you can usually use on rods rated anywhere between 6-20Kg.

Saltwater reels. There was a deal on the golden Spinfisher V which is considered a lot better than Battle II. For the smaller size reels(<4000), I would say either choose president(own 2) or add a few more bucks for a Shimano Sahara FI High gear ratio(own 1 retrieve faster adding more motions on the bait).

Cause they only make saltwater gears. Low profile baitcasters are not suitable for saltwater probably due to low line capacity and not being able to handle bigger fish.

For those saying there are much better reels, you are absolutely correct - if you want to pay for them. However, for the money, the Battle 2 is a good solid reel. I fish multiple Battles from the 1000 size (used for ultralight freshwater) up to a 6000 on a 9' surf rod. If you care for your gear, freshwater rinse after use in the salt, clean and lube a couple times during and at the end of a season and don't dunk it repeatedly, these will last a good long while for short money. Not criticizing anyone, but if you are the type of fisherman who measures a reel by how well it performs and how long it lasts without doing maintenance, then maybe these - and honestly most other spinning reels - aren't the best match for you. At the price point these reels are built to fill (at regular price even, let alone at these discounted prices) these are one of the best.
