Tear 'em up with this frighteningly powerful new reel from Penn®.

Model FRC2000 comes with a sleek, low-profile handle knob.
I purchased this reel to do some surf fishing in the gulf. I actually live is St Louis and was going on vacation. I did a little research before I bought and I thought this one would be the best fit for myself. The Bass Pro where I shop did not carry many salt water reels, so I had this one shipped to the store and picked it up and got free shipping. I fished for a week off the pier, off the beach, and off a boat in the bay. Caught many fish, including a 35lb Black drum, a 2ft shark, and many rays right off the beach. I was using 30lb braid and had no problems. I would highly recommend this reel.

I promise you will not be disappointed with this reel! I use it in the ocean for red drum, flounder, speckled trout, bluefish and anything else I can get to bite off the surf! It is amazing!! I even catch sharks and rays with no problem! this reel is a workhorse!! Great quality!

best buy for the money
I have religiously fished shimanos on my charters but have always respected the quality and raw toughness of penn. I gave these new penn spinning reels a chance and every time a client uses the fierce they have loved it. This reel is like crossing an old school penn with the smoothness of a shimano sahara and I think its great !

I got the 4000 model with 30lb braid. Performs well under pressure. No problems encountered so far. I use it for saltwater and freshwater. It has a great look to it and smooth action.

I am looking for a reasonably priced spinning reel that will be able to catch surface fish (kelp bass, calico bass). I also want it to be able to do some deep (150 to 300 feet) fishing for rock cod or California sculpin (so I don't have to change my rod and reel). Is this a good choice, and which model would suffice? 5000 or 6000?
For a medium heavy stick I would probably use either a Fierce 5000 or 6000. A 5000 will get the job done. I have a 4000 and you can fit up to 30 lbs braid, you really don't need more than that. The 7000 and 8000 are a lot bigger, definitely for the big fish so it would be a waste having that and not really using it to its potential.
The Sargus was made as an affordable alternative to the Battle which is why they look alike. So the Sargus is a step down from the Battle, and the Fierce is a step down from the Sargus. But the Fierce is very well made. It is very affordable and has the all metal design just like the Sargus and higher scale Battle. If money is an issue do not feel bad getting a Fierce, it is great.
was thinking the 5000 and pairing with a shakespeare ugly stick BWS1100 10" or would the 4000 with a BWS1100 8"0 be a better choice? i'm new to this and do a lot of fresh water fishing crappie and bass so would like some input from u guys. thinking fish for whats good eating flounder and spanish macks maybe sheepshead is supposed to be good eating
I use the 3000 for macs all the time and I really like it. Since it is all metal they can get heavy. I have a 5000 and its just too big and heavy for inshore. The 4000 would be nice as well but I prefer the 3000. I use powerpro 15-20lb braid and it handles fish and small sharks like a champ.
The 5000 would be the best. Overall amzing reel i got a sandshark in Buzzards bay along with some huge stripers.I would pair it with any 9'-11' medium to medium heavy spinning surf reel maybe a beefier one.
