The Penn Battle II Spinning Reel has striking looks, durable design and a silky-smooth drag. The Battle's full metal body maintains precision gear alignment under severe punishment while its Techno-Balanced™ rotor ensures smooth retrieves. From tuna to trout, the Battle performs and is engineered to last. With the Superline Spool, no backing is needed because a rubber gasket keeps line from slipping. HT-100™ Versa-Drag washers are keyed into the spool allowing the use of both sides of the washer providing higher max drag and smoother start ups. Convertible for right- or left-hand retrieve.
