  1. Well I was consider the Shimano Nasci 5000, but I can't find it, is out of stock almost every where...
  2. That's what I really want to heard.. thanks for the info. So your personal advice as I can see is to go with the 4000? Or I'm wrong? Thanks
  3. No body agree? Or disagree?
  4. Hi I found some info. In one web page talking about the similarities and diferrece between the 4000 and the 5000 taking the weight issue apart. Penn Battle 4000 Reel – makes an inspiring option for light offshore. It’s a reel capable of fishing shallow reefs, flats and bays for snapper and other reef sports fish. Back inshore, the Battle 4000 will be more than capable in lakes, rivers and enclosed waters for murray cod, barra, fingermark, school jewfish, queenfish and other outsized freshwater or saltwater fish. Battle 4000 Reels additionally make an excellent choice for light-mid class rock and beach fishing. Fishing for whiting, dart, salmon, tailor, bream, flathead and drummer will be little challenge. We suggest fishing rod sizes of between 6-7ft for light offshore or 6-8ft for heavy inshore. Many rods rated between 4-10kg will make terrific options for either approach. If surf or rock fishing, go easy and pick rods between 8ft to 10ft 6 inch in length that don line rating up to 5kg. Since the 4000 reel is only medium in physical size, it will balance better on longer rods with a lighter class. Penn Battle 5000 Reel – represents the same relevance as the size 4000. The only significant difference is line capacity is enhanced. Physical size grade isn’t much larger. Therefore, go by the same suggestions we have provided for the 4000 size in terms of rod choice. Of course, especially if using braided lines you could ramp up the rating of rod you choose to purchase if you need to. What do you think about this guys? Sound real? If its like this I'm almost decide for the 5000... be more prepare isn't bad.. Thanks Victor Garcia
  5. Battle III 5000 same size as the BG 4000? Really I cannot believe it.. I thought it was at least a little bigger but not as the BG. I like the 5000 size, what makes me think about it is his weight..the 4000 weight 12.2 oz and the 5000 jumps to 18.8 oz ...
  6. Shimano Nasci 5000 for example... hard to find by the way
  7. What means shimano with composite body? A mix of what? Is metal or not? I'm confuse...
  8. Ok.. will give a try, thanks
  9. Is a good option, but they're jump up a lot in weight, I can match a battle 5000 in a 10' black hole to give an example.. its too heavy at least for me, I'm a fisherman with back problems..thats why I'm looking for light weight equipment..
  10. 4500 will be a great option, but is just available in a few models..☹
  11. What for? Don't understand? I want a new one.. my post here is just to have an advice because I can't hold or see the reel in person.. view photos in a computer does not give me the real idea of how it is.. If you write it with another intention just let me know , I think it is a misunderstanding.. Thanks
  12. Hi I'm planning to buy a Penn Battle III 4000, but don't know how really big is. I have order by internet other 4000 sizes like Tsunami Shield 4000 and the Okuma Azores 4000 both were returned, are too small compared with my Daiwa BG 4000 and my Penn Spinfisher Vi 4500.. Now this Battle III 4000 compares to the one I have returned or is more biggers like the Daiwa and Spinfisher mentioned? Thanks Victor Garcia
  13. Thanks to all for all the comments. Now, the reel Im planning to match it with a 10' Dark Matter OB surf. So, so many told me 4000 is enough for that rod, but Im not sure, for me I match it with a Shimano Stradic 5000 but its too expensive for me. That would be my dream combo but I have to be conservative and I will spend in a less expensive reel. Any other advice now that knows where the reel will be used are welcome.. Thanks Victor
  14. Thanks for your comment. That's what I'm looking similar size of the Daiwa BG 4000 but in Penn. The Battle weight 12.2 oz I asume has to be little bigger than regular ones.. I cannot have the opportunity to see any because here in PR there's not too much fishing tackle stores..
