Reasons to buy this reel

  • Durable full metal housing installed for durability
  • Penn's CNC gear technology provides impressive smoothness
  • Casts great distances with all lure weights and line applications
  • Many anglers use this reel for saltwater fishing, but it's also a suitable reel for finesse fishing and bass fishing in general
  • Tough, work horse spinning reel

Reasons not to buy this reel

  • Some feel the spool on this reel is too large in comparison to the actual size of the reel
  • Price may be a talking point

Bottom line

The Clash II would make a great option if you're looking for a reel which can be used in all waters.
