    Definitely a much better reel than the Battle or Battle II of which I own both. When they gave up the ghost on me from very hard surf use I upgraded to the new Clash and overall I can say that it’s a much better reel. It’s lighter, stronger, has a smoother drag even though it’s supposedly the same HT100 that Penn has always used and the braid line lay is outstanding due to the slower oscillation – this was a huge problem with the Battle and Battle II. I bought 2 Clash reels – the 4000 and 5000 series. It even feels like a higher quality product than the Battles. No, it’s never going to be a Stella or a VS but it’s not intended to be at this price point. I gave up on Quantum as they are total junk for their price class. These are also very good looking reels. I match them on Star Stellar Lite 7′ boat and various surf plugging rods. In my opinion – worth the money. If you can spend more then I’d go for a VS but I think this is a better reel than Shimano’s new Stradic for the price level.Also, I have 30# Daiwa J-Braid on both my 4000 and 5000 Clash reels – Daiwa J-Braid is true breaking strength and as such is much thinner in diameter than other braids for the same rating. For example 30# in Daiwa J-Braid is #20 diameter in Western Filament Tough Line or Suffix Performance or 832. The 30# J-Braid handles well on this reel.

    Love this reel. I have 30 braided line on it. Have caught many saltwater fish with it, 20-30 red and black drum mostly. Well made, smooth, light and comfortable. Took it apart recently to clean, oil and grease. It looked great inside (unlike many things you get now days that need decent lubricant applied upon purchase/before you even use them). Very happy with this purchase. Will definately buy Penn again.

    Clash are great reals, very light for the line capacity and pretty good drags, I have a total of seven of them now. That said, if you fish them the drags can get sticky and will need tear down and cleaned. I’ve also had two spools freeze on the shafts, an easy enough fix in the garage, it not on the boat, those reels went out of service for the day, not a problem on my boat, but if you only have one…I’ll buy more of these because I’m not afraid of their problems, but don’t overpay.

    When reeling or working artificial bait it feels odd. I’m not sure how to explain it. I’m thinking it’s just the C.N.C gearing. It’s smooth when reeling, the drag is awsome. I paired a 2500 reel with a star seagis 7ft 6-14lb rod (sk614t70g). Once I messed with the line lay washers it worked even better. I’m using power pro super slick 15LB braid. It out cast my Shimano ci4+ using similar rod with same line. If it holds up with no issues I will be getting another one.

    This is the second one I bought, I’ve had the first one for about a year and a half and it’s been the best reel for inshore saltwater use out of anything I’ve ever used. It’s very smooth and has a solid feel behind it. I prefer this over my daiwa BG and shimano stradic. The stradic feels like a toy compared to this reel. The drag is extremely smooth and the clicker when adjusting the drag is convieneint. The line roller is very smooth and the sealed body is great. I have he 4000 and it pulls in decent size reds, Spanish mackerel, and big trout in no prpblem, I’ve never had to use all15lbs of drag, I’m sure you could drag in some large fish with this reel. The rings on the spool every 1/3rd capacity are great to let you know how much line is left. Have gotten very few wind knots, and it casts a mile. Over all it’s the best reel for the money. Just be sure to rinse it off wth fresh water and lubricate after use to keep it working like new. Will likely purchase more of this and phase out my shimano stradics.

    Began my striper fishing season with a clash 5000 on a 10ft surf rod. The reel fits anything very well between 9ft-10’6ft rod. The reel lasted most of the season being laid in sand dunked and fished very hard it eventually stopped working completely the gears somehow got mashed. Sent my reel in for service included my receipt and 2 weeks later I received a brand new reel. I was disappointed it broke the first year but I could have treated it better and with a free replacement I will buy another Penn reel very happy with the company’s service and standing by their warranty.

    I have several higher priced reels (Shimano, Daiwa) and must say that this reel is an exceptional reel in all aspects! Fit and finish is superb, drag is very smooth, line capacity estimates are accurate (300 yards of 30# Power Pro filled the reel exactly to the “full” ring), very sturdy (including the carbon fiber rotor)- but light weight. Line lay on the spool was perfect and I did not have to change to a different (provided) shim. I make it a habit of breaking down a new reel to check the level of lubrication- this reel was well lubed. Reel has large screws which make do-it-yourself maintenance a breeze. Although this reel is not totally sealed, bearings are sealed and well lubed- normal maintenance like rinsing after use in saltwater and periodic oiling will keep this reel in perfect order. Although the black/gold scheme is very attractive, I expect normal or hard use will really show the “road rash” but will not hurt the reel in any way. I’ll probably purchase another Clash reel- they’re that good.

    Light weight, smooth operation, great casting, spools well. Landed many bluefish from surf and off jetties.Didn’t like the thumb knob, so swapped it out with Gomexus.Mounted Clash 4000 on Tsunami Air Wave 9ft rod. It’s my goto for surf casting lures.

  9. OK, so……………

    Great, used it for spinning from the shore for decent pollock on light line (10lb b/s) and I have used it on the boat to catch Ling, mackeral, big wrasse, cod and on a baited flutter jig I even caught a 30lb tope and it coped just fine paired with a Kenzaki Braid 12 – 20lb and a 30lb mono topshot with 80lb braid. It holds about enough 80lb braid to fish in 100 feet of water and still some for those unexpected catches, this is just a 4000 though so for deeper water or even bigger fish, you might want a 5 or 6000. I got this reel after reading Henry Gilbey’s review and he was very positive towards this reel so I paid up and I’m not disappointed. Oh, a really fast retrieve is achieveable too. Great reel, best spinner I’ve ever bought.

    I bought the Clash 4000 and loved it so much I bought the 2500 one as well. Very well made spinning reel, I’ve caught many of freshwater and saltwater fish with itWhat I like-Very solid, made of strong material-Handle is easy on my fingers-Drag is easy to adjust-Saltwater safe-Looks beautiful. the picture isn’t far off of what it actually looks likeWhat could be improved-For the price it would be awesome to get another spool or even a carrying case. The $9 Penn neoprene case would be a great free add-on for this reel. Feels a bit like being nickel and dimed in this price range to buy it separate

    Great smooth drag, line capacity is good, never had any difficulties handling the inshore species of Cuban waters. 4ft Barracuda, large snapper, mackeral, grouper, etc… reel appears to be well built and should last me a long time.

    No gira muy fino pero tiene una potencia de freno brutal. El hilo en el carrete se carga perfectamente lo que significa que no tiene variaciones de mas relleno arriba que abajo o al reves por lo tanto el engranaje es perfecto.

    Have not used it yet but it is built like a tank. I have it strung up with 80lb braid to pitch up to 8oz musky lures on a spinning rod setup on a 10foot Surfrod.
