    Penn Conflict 4000 issue

    I've got a penn conflict 4000 that I've had in for repair twice at our local shop the only thing they can come up with is the case might be warped??? it hangs up and is really hard to reel and makes noise like the bearings are bad in my opinion. any suggestions from the penn reps? I bought a Clash after all the issues and love it, but hate to retire a reel that's less than a year old.

    eQuipMatt,
    Is the reel hard to turn only at a certain point (when the spool is highest or lowest) or through the entire spool stroke? If it is only in one spot then the spool shaft is most likely bent, if not, it could be a variety of issues.

    We would be happy to handle it as a warranty. Print out the repair form from our website and fill out your information, leaving the credit card info blank.

    You can send your reel to:
    PENN Fishing Tackle
    Attn: Repair Department
    3028 West Hunting Park Avenue
    Philadelphia, PA 19132

    No, it's rough full reel. Honestly the noise or feel it has seems to be bearing related in my opinion

    Very well could be a bad bearing. Unfortunately there is no way of telling exactly which one needs replaced until we get into the reel.

    Best bet is to send it in to the address above and we will take care of the reel ASAP for you. Let me know what you would like to do.
