PENN FIERCE FISHING REELS (SMALL SIZES)
The second-generation Penn Fierce Reels were first released in the United States back in September 2015. The first incarnation of the accessibly priced spin workhorse enjoyed a loyal following and, based on recent reviews, Fierce II is likely to surpass the popularity of its older sibling and made its debut to the Australian shore.
The reel was already known for its robustness and durability, the upgrade to a much heavier grade bail wire has further increased durability. The spool now has line indicators and a Superline spool band for the braid anglers. 4 bearings plus the Techno-Balanced rotor ensure a very smooth crank, while gears are kept perfectly meshed thanks to the rigid all metal body and side plate.
The Penn fierce II best feature is that it provides excellent performance and durability at entry level price. Even the fussiest of spin anglers will feel great confidence from cast to high load battle.
The new addition to the range are the LL, or, Live Line models. Penn have sought to support their live and flesh bait customers, and to compete directly with other brands of bait teaser technology. The dual drag system works seamlessly. With Live Liner engaged the reel can free spool, the fish will feel no resistance. Simply turn the handle and engage the present front drag.
The small models listed below will suit the inshore angler, fresh and salt, with the Penn Fierce 2500 sitting nicely in the finesse fishing category. The Fierce 2500LL is ideal for the live bait angler casting live prawns and Yabbies at Bream, Flathead and Whiting. Where the Penn Fierce 3000 reel is an outstanding general purpose inshore style fishing reel for lighter work that will also fair well casting at closer beach gutters on light kit. All models listed will be ideal for kayak angers that target common species in the canals, rivers and estuaries.

Fishing Application and Fishing Rod Suggestion Guide
Penn Fierce 2500 and Penn Fierce 3000 size fishing reels are ideally suited to inshore fishing so places like lakes and rivers are a safe bet. We suggest matching the 2500 size reel up to any rod graphite or fibreglass with a line rating of around 2-5kg, usually this will be in the vicinity of around 7ft in length. For the 3000 size we suggest matching to a 6-7ft rod with a line rating of 4kg+
