The Conquer introduces proprietary design elements that designed to give anglers the best operating spinning reel in the price range. Exclusive to the Conquer reel is the EAS™ (Easy Access System). A single screw secures a rear hatch that when open provides full access to the gearbox making it easier than ever to service and lubricate gears and bearings. This allows anglers to provide quick maintenance in the field or while travelling, and makes it possible to get back to fishing when you don't necessarily have all the tools to completely break down the reel for service.
Also found only on this reel is the spool lip design with Eternal Alloy™ construction, incorporating strength and hardness twice that of titanium alloy. The spool lip is protected from dents, nicks scratches, which are a major cause of decreased casting distances and line damage. Other features of this new reel with patented one-piece machined aluminum gear box include a Superline Spool™ eliminating the need for backing, 10+1 shielded stainless steel bearings, HT-100™ drag washers for smooth drag under heavy loads, Techno-Balanced™ rotor and Leveline oscillation.
The 9.9-ounce CQR2000 has a retrieve ratio of 5.1:1
The CQR4000 weighs 11.1 ounces with a gear ratio of 5.8:1.
The 14.6-ounce CQR5000 and 18.1-ounce 7000 each have a gear ratio of 4.8:1.
The Conquer comes in four sizes and will retail for $199.99 to $219.99 when it becomes available September 2009.
Conclusion: Does Penn have a homerun on their hands? On paper the new spinning reels from Penn certainly look like they have the innovation and performance specifications to win over saltwater anglers. The Torque is for those anglers who demand the very most from a premium spinning reel when fishing in the toughest of conditions. The Conquer is designed to be a quality spinning reel that provides plenty of features and durability without the big price tag normally associated with a reel that incorporates innovative features, and when it comes to useful features it just doesn't get much better than the "Easy Access System" for quick on-the-spot maintenance.
