Penn Battle 4000 Fishing Reels Review
Penn Battle has a reputation when it comes to making of quality spinning reels. Penn Battle 4000 is an intermediary of the light duty 1000 series and the very heavy duty 6000-8000 series.
I like the way the 4000 series offer capabilities that enable me to use it for the smaller fish and the relatively bigger fish. My wife, for instance, loves it bearing in mind that ladies are sensitive to weight.
I bought her one, and she did not have the idea that I am indirectly trying to get her get a muscle.This spinning reel that conquers all the odds has means by which it does that.
I am born in a family with a fishing history. Our family makes that history using the Penn Battle 4000. We first of all trust the manufacturer and most importantly the product itself.
You will get to see why this is the product that you have been trying to get with your trial and error of different spinning reels. You can afford to use this spinning reel for both salty and inshore fishing. With all that, it has to offer it gives you value for your money.
HT-100 Drag Washers
HT-100 versa drag washers give the maximum drag that I will need for a consistent reeling and casting process. The drag ensures that sudden tension on the line by the catch do not lead to the line breakage.
With these drag washers, I easily maneuver my catch smoothly and steadily. The catch does not stand any chance of escape. To ensure smooth operation, the manufacturer accompanies the reel with Penn grease.
A gear ratio of 5.2:1 enables my wife to accompany me fishing. I got a Penn Battle 4000 spinning reel for him. This gear ratio sees to it that it requires minimum power to do the reeling and the retrieving. The manufacturer does a good job on the gearing.
The spool of the Penn Battle 4000 can accommodate 275 yards for 2lb line, 135 yards of 4lb line, 105 yards of 6lb line. Meaning when I need a long line, I get it to reach the great depths of the waters. Going out of line is never a pleasant experience.
Weight 8.1 Oz.
The Penn Battle 4000 weighs 8.1 oz. That weight feels comfortable whenever I am using my reel. What heavy reels do is that they weigh you down. You will be struggling to cast well bearing in mind that you need one hand on the handle and another on the spool.
The construction of the Penn 4000 is from materials that give it maximum durability. An aluminum spool gives the reel the stability that it needs even under tension.
Weak spools make the reel wobble during retrieves especially. Wobbling during retrieves will make you end up losing the catch.
