would a battle ii 4000 be a bit heavy for freshwater bass fishing?

4 posts in this topic

I think my above title sort of explains it.I dont use baitcasting gear for bass fishing.I would like to pair my battle ii 4000 with a medium heavy spinning rod so I could throw bigger lures for bass fishing thanks for any input.

I mean its doable, especially if you are targeting larger bass, might not be the most practical reel to use, but it would deff get the job done

I have used my Battle II 2500 fluke reel for bass with 10Lb PP braid... worked fine for me I see no reason the 4k wouldnt get the job done

A  bit much, yes. But, it would sure have the torque needed if you're pulling 'em out of weeds. If you're boat/kayak fishing, most people use a couple rods, anyhow. A person could have a finesse rod and a heavy duty rod (I do this when yakking bass)
