Been reading about the propulsion equipped reels but is this needed to throw braid and does the penn battles have this feature? Or is this just a sales gimmick

Guess I've been under a rock, never heard of, or paid attention to, whether a reel is "propulsion equipped". But I do have a Penn Battle, and I can say while it does cast as good as any other spinning reel I own, it has no obvious features that differ greatly from other quality spinning reels I own when in actual use. My battle is a 4000, and I run Power Pro 15lb on it with no problems.
If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space!

Shimano refers to a Propulsion Line Management system for some of their reels. Is this what what you're referring to? If so I think it refers to a system of reduced line twist and backlash.
