Description

Penn Conquer Spinning Reels feature fully anodized and machined aluminum superline spools. A rubber gasket at the base of the spool keeps superlines and braids from slipping and eliminates the need for backing. These spinning reels incorporate the EAS Easy Access System which is a maintenance hatch that gives you full access to the gear box. This system allows for all the gearing to be lubricated in a matter of seconds without the fear of parts falling out. A single set screw holds the hatch in place. The EAS system will keep these reels in top performing shape and is much easier to use than totally disassembling the reel.

Conquer Spinning Reels have a smooth drive thanks to it's ten shielded ball bearings and instant anti-reverse bearing. The HT-100 drag system ensures strong performance, even under the heaviest drag loads. These reels are perfect for any freshwater/saltwater excursion whether your using traditional mono, hi-tech fluorocarbon or the latest braided line.

I have always been a fan of Penn reels and have used them since I was a boy when the reels were reliable, smooth, solid and American made. I still fish with some of them 50 years later. Today I have several new Penn "Battle" spinning reels (cost about $100) that I have used often. I like those reels despite the fact that they would bind at times when retrieving if they got wet inside. My reels have always been well maintained with washing and lubricating after each use. I'm ready to retire and plan on doing a lot more fishing and wanted a "very good" reel, one I could rely on. I decided to spend the money and move up to the Penn "Conquer CQR5000" (cost about $200). It looks gorgeous, just beautiful. It's light weight, drilled out, even the handle. It feels good on the rod. All these features as advertised and described in the company literature.
Pros: Beautiful looking, light weight, smooth
Cons: BAIL WIRE IS 2 PIECE AND BROKE ON FIRST OUTING AWAY FROM HOME, REEL BEARINGS ARE NOT SEALED, NOT BIG ENOUGH DRAG FOR THE REEL SIZE & PRICE
Best Uses: none
