I love these reels,i switch from penn ss to penn battles from1000-6000's great for sea trout to cobia
This my second Penn Battle reel,except this for my oldest grandson.My Battle was exceptional last summer fishing for stripers,blues and small bluefin.I have always been a Penn fan and find their customer service and parts dept. very accomadating.
reel quite sturdy, but heavy and bulky. Not exactly the folded elements that are noticeable backlash. Recommending the same class would reel ZAUBER DO, is cheaper and better made??.
Love everything about the reel, I also currently have a 6000 model and it is great. even on this 3000 model the main shaft is big and sturdy built tough. only reason why i gave thise one 3 stars is because it is not laying line good. i might try taking out one spacer and will see what happen. it is laying line in a cone shape.
