Thanks for showing this guys —

The Pursuit ll was at a low price point — and a good value in many areas.

Now, with the improvements of HT-100 drags added to a 4 SS bearing system, machined aluminum spool, braid ready, and the range of sizes available — this is an extraordinary value in the lll.

It is good to see meaningful small improvements from a major manufacturer.

These reels are good across all target ranges — and make a great kayak, surf, or boat reel that will perform without breaking the bank.

Had a good friend who owns a restaurant.  On a few days a year, he sells waffles for 25 cents.  When I asked him how he made any money — he said they sold thousands in a day, never stopped making them with (6) waffle makers going.  And they sold a lot of bacon and eggs at regular prices, and hundreds of gallons of coffee at $2.95 a cup.  Folks swarmed in, and there were waiting lines out the door.

Got to remember, these are $40 to $60 reels — with decent features — not everyone will appreciate or even comprehend what we do on Alan’s site to hop up and understand our reel engineering.  So I think these have a place — maybe not for every one of us — but for many they will work just fine.  Just IMO.

Best,

Fred

“Of course, now I am too old to be much of a fisherman, and now of course I usually fish the big waters alone, although some friends think I shouldn’t. Like many fly fishermen in western Montana where the summer days are almost Arctic in length, I often do not start fishing until the cool of the evening.

Then in the Arctic half-light of the canyon, all existence fades to a being with my soul and memories and the sounds of the Big Blackfoot River and a four-count rhythm and the hope that a fish will rise.

Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.

   Sounds like a very nice reel. Interesting how years ago they started using graphite side plates to reduce weight, and now the frame gets the graphite while the side plate stays metal to keep gears aligned. Glad to see Penn still innovating, the new products are very competitive. Cool

Not sure on how that would help, but we'll see Undecided.

Now they are going to have to upgrade the Fierce too. For one thing the Fierce is a higher priced reel then the Pursuit & has felt drags. Maybe it's time to drop one or the other. JMO              Rudy

The Pursuit makes a great surf reel because it doesn’t have as much metal to corrode. The others have issues with corrosion and paint loss. Hopefully they will address the finish on their all metal reels.

Great reels in their application. I have two 4000, a 5000, and an 8000 in the II. If it fits I will upgrade to the HT100 washers in them.

The Battle HT 100's fit the Fierce so they will probably fit the Pursuit also.

Correct just make sure you order Battle 1st gen drag washers and not 2nd gen.
