Penn Clash 2 - I love this reel!
May 11, 2021
Paired a 1000 series with a St. Croix Premier rod.... what a sweet little setup! It's good looks are what caught my eye, but it casts great and it's smooth on the retrieve. Brass pinion and aluminum main gear, and the HT100 drag is really nice and smooth. I am a fan of Penn's CNC gears. Caught trout and crappie on the first trip, and the reel was flawless. I love this reel, and I would absolutely buy another!
ProsLooks great Aluminum frame Casts great Smooth retrieve HT 100 drag CNC gearing Sturdy
ConsMy only con is that I don't have two of these reels!

Got the 3000 HS. Beautiful and great reel. Have this reel and rhe Back Bay 3000 both with 15 lb braid to use for surf fishing and CA Aquaduct stripers. Both are excellent reels but the BB is much smotheer, as a matter of fact a lot smoother than most of my reels and high end reels but I will get the Clash 2 again no problem.

The 2000 series Clash 2 is only the second Penn reel I have ever owned (Shimano Boy). I purchased a 3000 when the Clash 2 had just been released. These reels are monsters/tanks. I got them both for wade fishing. 3000 salt- 2000 fresh. They are amazingly SMOOTH! They cast great and they hold lots for line. I love'em!!! IMHO the clash 2 and Stradic are the BEST 200.00 reels made.
Pros1.. Tough 2.. Super smooth 3.. Cast great 4.. Holds a lot of line 5.. One of the best 200.00 reels made
ConsMay be to heavy for large mouth bass fisherman. I can cast it all day no problem!

Been fishing with Penn reels for over 30 years and the Clash II is the nicest inshore spinning reel Penn has ever made! I now have a 2500, 3000 and a 4000. All three reels are a blast fishing the flats! Super smooth, plenty of drag and near perfect line lay. Great job Penn! Anyone want to buy my original Clash reels? Haha!
ConsSo far none!
