The Conquer™ spinning reel is built with all the quality and workmanship PENN has delivered for over 75 years. Designed for inshore and nearshore species, so whether you are fishing for tarpon or trout, the Conquer comes in five sizes to match the fish you’re after.
The Easy Access System is the most innovative maintenance feature ever introduced in a spinning reel. By simply backing out one screw on the stem of the reel, the rear hatch opens and gives full access to the gearbox. Now you are able to grease gears and oil bearings in a matter of seconds. All parts are contained within the gearbox so you won’t have to worry about any parts falling out., which makes this system extremely easy to use. The EAS makes maintaining your reel easy, and the more you maintain your reels the longer they last.
Eternal Alloy is a revolutionary material utilized on the spool lip that provides performance far exceeding any other material. Its unique atomic structure is impervious to any performance robbing corrosion, bumps, scratches, stresses and dings that extreme fishing conditions can dish out. The strength and hardness are more than twice that of a typical titanium alloy. It is three times harder than steel and six times harder than aluminum. Unlike coatings which are placed over material with weaker properties that eventually cause failure, Eternal Alloy parts are Eternal Alloy all the way through. The extreme strength and hardness of the Eternal Alloy spool lip prevents nicks and dings that decrease casting distance and damage line.
No backing is needed because the rubber gasket keeps superlines from slipping.

Last year I bought a conqueor 8000 and put it on a tiger lite jogging rod 6 foot with 65 pound power pro braid. We went fishing off of Georgetown to a wreck called cape romaine and when we got there we thought we had hung the wreck so we were about to try to break the line then all of a sudden it started stripping drag as big as this thing was we said we were going to video it and according to the video 45 minutes later we had pulled a shark out of 70 feet of water we marked it on the side of the boat and when we got home it measured up to be 9 feet and 250 pounds. With all the drag on that conqueor 8000 it took 3 people to take turns fighting that fish for 45 minutes. The reel is incredibly smooth and the drag even with all those pounds of drag on it. I am very pleased.
I am own 9 of these reels in various sizes. The conquers have great castability and awesome stopping power. My only issue has been with the bail springs. I have had to replace the springs on almost everyone at one point or another.
last year i bought penn conquer 5000 and this year i bought penn conquer 7000 and i go to andaman sea at thailand,what can i say is,this is the best reel i've ever had,and it have a really good condition n really smooth,i just us a hard drag n just lock it n just pump it..coz i wanna see the tough of this reel,the answer i got is,i got a good fight with 103 pound baracuda,this reel is very tough n i can use it well even that fish is big n strong,now i plan to buy 1 penn conquer 3000 for casting.i really hope it have that size for my 5ft penn rod.
