Product Reviews

Pursuit III Spinning is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lake Michigan Salmon/Trout Reel I bought the 4000 series Penn Pursuit III and paired it with a 9' medium action Uglystik for shore, pier and tributary fishing for Lake Michigan trout and salmon. The main feature that drew me to this reel was the carbon HT100 drag system. It's really smooth and strong. It allows you to lock it down when trying to control a large fish. The reel is also very smooth and casts 12# P-line CX Premium line a mile. All-in-all I'm looking forward to years of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great reel for the price I have a 5000 and 4000 and have had no issues with them on the surf. They are my go to reels with no worries about failure and have been nothing but dependable. Able to handle larger fish and bad circumstances. I use the 4000 on a 11 ft rockaway for surf perch and salmon during the ocean runs. Just do regular maintenance like any other salt water reel and should it should last. I highly recommend these reels for anyone on a budget but want quality fishing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great reel for the price I bought the 2500 size for steelhead fishing and so far it is pretty good. I will say that it is a bit geary, however when you're fishing you don't even notice it and it doesn't make a difference. It has an extremely smooth drag and has a nice clicking sound as well, which i personally like. I also love the big handle on this reel, as it's easy to find and grip on to. This is probably one of the best reels for $40

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Penn Pursuit III 2500 I bought 2 and just got back from the Outer Banks on a 4 day fishing trip. I fished off the Pier and in the surf. These reels did everything I wanted them to do. Also easy cleanup after a day of fishing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SOLID and VERSATILE Reel for the Price! I bought the Penn Pursuit III 2500 to use as a back up inshore, nearshore, and pier fishing reel for the summer. I primarily used it as a pier plugging/casting setup to target bluefish and Spanish mackerel in which it excelled due to the fast gear ratio and smooth drag. However, one trip truly put this reel to the test when I hooked up to my first ever king mackerel at 36.5” and 10 lbs; the reel exceeded my expectations when I saw firsthand how smooth the HT-100 drag system was and how fast the reel could pick up line. After this test of the reel’s reliability, I have decided to use it in my “starting lineup” of both freshwater and saltwater setups. If you intend to use the Penn Pursuit III for saltwater applications, a freshwater rinse after every few trips and an annual re-greasing of internal parts after every season will ensure you many more years of use with this reel. For the price point, Penn offers many options in the Pursuit III that will suit the needs of an entry level angler as well as the most avid angler. All I can say is that the Penn Pursuit III is a solid, versatile reel that can be utilized in multiple freshwater and saltwater applications! Pros: Affordable Price, Smooth Drag, More than adequate line capacity, and Overall Versatility. Cons: Wind Knots (Although not a common occurrence, happened as a result of slightly overfilling the spool with line.) and Doesn’t have the best line lay (There is a noticeable improvement in line lay when compared to older/previous models in the Penn line up.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great reel for the price! I bought 2 reels as replacements for older Penn reels. I am very pleased with their performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from penn pursuit 3 4000 brought 7' 4000 combo for lite fishing 30 lbs braid....works fine... switch reel to my 10 ' rod for surf fishing works great.....reel itself is awsome!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Went to Florida for work and I landed some bull reds off the beach it held of great and the drag was smooth. My little 5000 didn't hold up to well when I hooked up to some blacktips which is if fine considering the terminal tackle would let my put too much pressure on the sharks.
