From lighter materials to stronger drags to high-tech components and finishes, today’s fishing reels are a marvel of form and function. Manufacturers are constantly working to improve performance, making it easier than ever to cast and retrieve.
At PENN, refinements to their best-selling reels are a labor of love, honed with the understanding that lighter-weight, precision-engineered equipment empowers anglers to cast further and faster, and fish longer. After all, who wouldn’t want to extend each outing by a few more casts?
This year, PENN introduced the Conflict II, an upgrade to its popular Conflict series that features stealthy cosmetics, a smooth HT-100 carbon fiber drag system and a lightweight design, making it the lightest PENN reel to date — 20 percent lighter than the first-generation Conflict. The RR30 Rigid Resin body and rotor are extremely durable, without adding any unnecessary bulk, while a sleek jet-black finish is easy on the eyes.
Additionally, PENN’s Leveline System places the line back onto the spool with little crossover and few gaps when being re-spooled.
The Conflict II has also been updated with PENN’s CNC Gear Technology, a high-quality 7+1 stainless-steel bearing system, and HT-100TM carbon fiber drag washers, making it the ultimate PENN inshore reel.
