During the field-test period, I tried out the Battle III on yellowfin tuna at Guadalupe Island!

What are the features of the III over the II? I have an original Battle 6000 and have caught 30# YT and YFT with it. I didn't bother with the II since there was little difference from the original.

Ben goes over the differences in the above video, but probably the biggest single difference is the C-n-C machined gears, which the I and II did not have.

    I saw on the Penn site that a Battle III DX is coming out this Fall. Any idea when/where these might be available & what are the added features besides color? Thx

    Predicting dates this year has been difficult to do.
    "DX" stands for "Dealer Exclusive", meaning the site named after the river in South America won't have it.
    Compared to the regular version, the DX will have an extra bearing, the "wave spring" drag knob, and all sizes have the machined brass main gear [in regular model, the smaller sizes have machined aluminum main gear].
