Saltwater spray stings your weathered cheeks as the bow crests the first wave. The thundering silence of the sea absorbs you. On the horizon, birds circle above, their shrill caws ringing out like a battle cry. You motor over, steeling yourself for the fight ahead. Be it a red drum bull or a hungry school of tuna, whatever’s prowling in the deep blue depths, rise to the occasion with a reel that can conquer. Introducing the PENN® Battle® III reels.
THE NEW PENN® BATTLE® III, NOW EQUIPPED WITH CNC GEARS™.
In the third iteration of the Battle®, we outdid ourselves again, pushing the envelope on what you can expect out of a reel. Now fitted with CNC Gear™ Technology, HT-100™ Carbon Fiber Drag System, and a full metal body, the Battle® III is fluid, fast, and fierce. The Battle® III comes in a variety of sizes ranging from 1000 to 10000. Sizes 1000-5000 are equipped with a brass pinion gear and aluminum main gear. Bigger species require even more durability, so Battle® sizes 6000-10000 feature brass pinion and brass main gears. High-speed models are available in the 4000, 6000, and 8000 sizes for fishing fast-moving species like bonefish and kingfish. Whether you’re wading for flounder or trolling for tuna, outfit your rig with a reel that can handle the job.
We redesigned our already lightweight and sensitive Battalion™ line of rods to give inshore and surf anglers a more resilient and versatile workhorse; creating the strongest Battalion Rod to date. The Battalion™ II Inshore rod is built with our new SLC2 construction, a process that utilizes inner spiral carbon wraps and outer layers of longitudinal carbon fibers to make this generation of the Inshore lighter and stronger than its predecessor. Both the Battalion™ II Inshore and Surf models come outfitted with Fuji® Alconite Guides and a Fuji® Reel Seat. The Surf rod is also available in a uniquely fashioned Ulua model, the length and action of which are specifically designed with Ulua anglers in mind. This model features a 100% graphite blank for strength, Caxin Indestructible Guides, and a stainless steel rod butt. Pair any of these Battalion™ rods with the Battle® III—though the rods can work with a wide variety of reels—for the quintessential saltwater setup.
