Penn Conquer Reel
When I first saw the magazine adds for the new Penn Conquer reel late last tear I was intrigued. With what Penn calls the Easy Access System all you need to do is loosen one screw and the maintenance hatch opens up so you can easily service the reel. I am a fanatic when it comes to maintaining my fishing equipment. I wash my reels with fresh water dry them and spray them with Blakemores Reel Magic after ever trip and I oil the bearings every two weeks. That's the easy part. Every winter I take the reels apart to clean the insides and grease the gears. That takes about 45 minutes per reel. I am always afraid that I am going to loose one of the screws to the sideplate. I opened to maintenance hatch on my new Penn Conquer and this task will only take about 5 minutes now.
