PENN BATTLE II WINS BEST SALTWATER REEL AWARD   PENN BattleII BTLII6000
Newly Designed Reel Wins ICAST Award


ORLANDO, Fla. (July 17, 2014) – The PENN® Battle® II has been awarded the Best Saltwater Reel Award at the 2014 ICAST show in Orlando, Fla. The voters recognized the PENN Battle II as the top new saltwater reel for 2014 by the select ICAST attendees, which include active editorial journalist and retailers.

The popularity of the PENN Battle spinning reel continues to grow as anglers recognize the durability and fishability found in this finely crafted reel. Inspired by design innovations made possible through new technology, PENN introduces the improved Battle II.

Included in the improvements is line management. PENN added line capacity rings to let the angler know when the spool is properly filled. This ensures that the casts are not subject to excess line stripping from the spool, resulting in improved castability.

The Battle II has enhanced corrosion resistance due to the improvements of using five sealed bearings and one anti-reverse bearing.

The Battle II incorporates keyed carbon fiber washers in the HT-100™ drag system that utilizes both sides of the drag washers and increases maximum drag by 15 to 50 percent.

Many original Battle features remain in the Battle II, including the full metal body, sideplate and rotor; instant anti-reverse, heavy-duty aluminum bail wire and superline spool.

Eight Battle II spinning reels are offered in 1000 to 8000 sizes. New to the lineup is the 2500 size designed for inshore/light braid applications. Nine Battle II spinning combos are also available for inshore, near shore, boat and surf applications. Each rod is paired and balanced with a Battle II reel and range from 6 feet, 6 inches to 10 feet long in actions from medium-light to heavy. Battle II combo rods include a (inshore) or EVA grip.

MSRP for the new Battle II reels range from $99.95 to $129.95; combos are priced from $129.95 to $159.95. All Battle II products will be available in September of 2014.
