Got the 3000 HS. Beautiful and great reel. Have this reel and rhe Back Bay 3000 both with 15 lb braid to use for surf fishing and CA Aquaduct stripers. Both are excellent reels but the BB is much smotheer, as a matter of fact a lot smoother than most of my reels and high end reels but I will get the Clash 2 again no problem.

Penn Clash 2 - CLAII2000
September 12, 2020
The 2000 series Clash 2 is only the second Penn reel I have ever owned (Shimano Boy). I purchased a 3000 when the Clash 2 had just been released. These reels are monsters/tanks. I got them both for wade fishing. 3000 salt- 2000 fresh. They are amazingly SMOOTH! They cast great and they hold lots for line. I love'em!!! IMHO the clash 2 and Stradic are the BEST 200.00 reels made.
Pros1.. Tough 2.. Super smooth 3.. Cast great 4.. Holds a lot of line 5.. One of the best 200.00 reels made
ConsMay be to heavy for large mouth bass fisherman. I can cast it all day no problem!

What a nice reel!

Been fishing with Penn reels for over 30 years and the Clash II is the nicest inshore spinning reel Penn has ever made! I now have a 2500, 3000 and a 4000. All three reels are a blast fishing the flats! Super smooth, plenty of drag and near perfect line lay. Great job Penn! Anyone want to buy my original Clash reels? Haha!
ConsSo far none!

Extremely happy with my purchase and highly recommend this reel to all saltwater anglers.
Besides cosmetics, and I did see the original Clash has a l8 faster retrieve, what other differences are there in the Clas and ClashII? THX
The main differences are the Clash II has a hydrophobic line roller bearing, instant anti-reverse, and the new Clutch Armor System, which helps keep important components in the reel better protected against the elements.

Is the Clash II series sealed as good as the Spinfisher VI series?
While the Clash series is a very well designed water resistant reel it, does not have the IPX5 seals in it like the spinfisher does
