I have just got a penn battle 8000 mate brilliant bit of kit
I like my battles, great winching power line lay not so great for big casts though anc needs a bit of profiling of the backing
is that you Jason? get a battle bud
yes ben its Jason what sort of price
£100 at whitby angling mate
my mate has a penn affinity 8000 lc & a penn surf blaster 8000 both seem like quality reels he seems to think the surf blaster is better than the affinity and the surf blaster was about £40 cheaper both brand new
Have a look at the new Penn conflict 8000, meant to be a based on a tweaked / improved Battle......?
The Opus Bull 6000 is a tough reel , well built , casts decent has a spare spool and you can get it for 70 odd quid , theres also reels in
the Fin Nor range that are as tough as old boots again in the 70 odd range
The fishing tackle shop in Saltburn has just got some of the Fin Nor FS reels in stock , the 7500 and the larger 8500 OS reel both good
I actually came on here a couple of days ago to ask the same question as I am 'poo' with a multiplier hah ! tbf I am a complete novice BUT after reading the link to the other thread I took note , went to Keiths ...had a play and opted for the Penn battle 8000. Ive not cast it out to sea as yet but went out on a field in pretty windy weather today and was getting more distance than when I was trying to cast a multiplier or cheap fixed spool. The battle seems to cast dead smooth to anything ive used in my very short time in the hobby
spend a few more quid mate and go for the ultegra xsc you wont be disappointed i have 2 now and wont go back to anything else now
How much are the xsc cassy?
