The Penn Battle 5000 and 6000 are too heavy IMHO. You want to cast for hours without destroying your shoulder or elbow. 

On an 11' rod? No way man. If those reels are too heavy, get yourself into the gym.

In some cases, there may be only an ounce or two difference. It’s all about personal preference, not how strong you are. I find it more comfortable using lighter reels, and to be honest, the combo balance where I place my hand is improved.

Bigger is not always better. Not every bowler rolls a 16 pound ball.

For me and I will repeat this

For me and in my case

I do not use any reel bigger than 4K on plugging rods.

And my beach plugging rods are 10", 11" and 12' (all Okima Rockaway, btw, :howdy:)
