Fishermen's opinions about Penn Conquer

Very good reel

I bought it because I do a lot of wading in salt water, and occasionally dunk my reel accidentally. I like the access port, which is truly easy to use.
Casting is excellent. Works great with 10# Fireline Crystal using the size 2000 reel.
Smooth. Very well made. Comfortable and light. Excellent drag.
No regrets so far. Have been using the reel for a few weeks, fishing frequently. Can't comment on long-term durability, but construction is up to par with my other Penn spinners, and they have been my most durable reels.

decent plugging reel

I use all my reels almost exclusively for casting from shore using artificial bait, poppers, swimmers, bucktails, sluggos. This reel, when matched with the right braid and rod, gives you decent distance and has an excellent drag, smooth and powerful. The only thing I wish this had is a higher gear ratio for faster retrieves for when you need to get your lure in to recast to breaking fish on the move.

great spinning reel

If you want a good spinning reel and are willing to spend some money go with the conquer. It's super smooth, lightweight and with 32 lbs of drag it's a great choice.

I have had horrible luck with Conquer 5000. I bought 2 of them. After one of them failed 3 times, they gave me a Shimano Sustain of equal value. The one I am stuck with has issues with the drag.
