PENN Clash Spinning Reel

by Chris Grech

The new PENN Clash Spinning Reel is an ideal choice reel for quality without breaking the bank. These new for 2015 reels feature a full metal body to eliminate twisting caused by high drag pressure and are stuffed with CNC Gear Technology. When compared to cast gearing that is used in many other reels, the CNC process is superior with benefits including both strength and precision. These Dura-Gears offer a more long lasting and dependable gear, plain and simple. The PENN Clash also features 9 sealed stainless steel ball bearings for silky smooth operation along with a heavy-duty aluminum bail wire, instant anti-reverse and HT-100 carbon fiber drag washers to slow down hard running gamefish. Another feature is the Leveline Oscillation which utilizes slow movement for precise line management. A braid ready spool with line capacity rings rounds out this slick package. The PENN Clash is available in 7 models ranging from the 8.2 ounce CLA2000 that has a braid capacity of 210/8, 180/10, 165/15 to the beefy CLA8000 which weighs 27.2 ounces and has a braid capacity of 465/50, 390/65, 345/80. The CLA8000 boasts a whopping 30lbs of max drag and a 4.7:1 gear ratio. The PENN Clash would make a nice holiday gift for that special angler in your life (that includes yourself).

$179.95 to $259.95 MSRP

I love this reel and am pulling the trigger on on today. Not just for saltwater! It is so smooth and we'll built.

I bought the reel and have been using it now for a couple of weeks. I don't notice much difference from my battle 2 other than the price. So far its been a good reel. The drag is smooth and the line pick up speed is very fast. It handles fish well and I don't get a lot of wind knots. I just wish the reel was a bit smoother for the price.
