Suggestions on new spinning reel

I'm thinking of a getting a bass setup. Looking for spinning reel around $100. I am looking at a Penn Battle 2000. Any thoughts, suggestions, or testimony? I will most likely get a 2 piece rod to go along with it.

Have heard nothing but good things about the Battles. I'd personally go a size up into the 3k range. I use a Penn Slammer 360 on a 1pc 7ft Falcon m/l rod. It has been a great setup for me, pulled this with it a couple weeks ago

I'm not sure honestly, I had no scale We were thinking maybe somewhere in the 6-6 1/2 lb range.

I've heard a lot of good things about the Pflueger President. I've only owned the ultralights and just bought one of these (Apprentice combo).



Seems to be a decent reel so far.

Shimano pm me for more information, I do a ton of bass fishing and have 8 different set ups. I have a couple shimano spinning reels, including a stradic CI4 but my buddy just bought a saros, and the reel is awesome. The rest of my reels are all shimano baitcasters

Well I got a little side tracked on this. I just ordered a Rainshadow SW 1087. I hope to catch kings, spanish and really anything else out there. It should be ready this week. Now I will have to get a reel for it.

I used a couple pflueger presidents last summer because a buddy had 4-5 of them

we used them on bass and some hefty cats with no issues whatsoever...love those reels

I'm planning on replacing all my reels with them as they wear out/break

Never liked Penn. Picked up a battle 3000 and landed a 30 inch redfish and numerous trout with it on a medium light calico jack. Very impressed with the combo and will change my mind on penn. Shimano seems to be a default of mine. Never had an issue. And since no one has mentioned it. Wright and McGill makes a sabalos for about 80 bucks. Have 3 of them and they are great at taking salt water abuse.

Been using only Pflueger for all my set up. No complaints at all. Just wish I had more time to go fishing.
