Penn Torque Star Drag Reels contain Line Capacity Rings which eliminate the question of how much line you have left when fighting a fish. The three lines on the spool flange let you know when you have 1/3rd, 2/3rd, or a full spool of line. Also, if you respool often these lines give you a benchmark for backing your superlines with monofilament which will help eliminate wasted time and lines. You can easily adjust the clicker to three settings, heavy, light, or off. Switchblade harness lugs give you all the benefits of traditional lugs without the risk of grabbing loose line and potentially breaking off fish. When the lugs are not in use they remain flush with the reel frame, when you need them they easily pop up with the tip of your finger. The other benefit of the proprietary Switchblade harness lugs is basic ergonomics. Lets face it, harness lugs can be uncomfortable when you are palming the reel on the cast retrieve. If you don't plan to use the lugs then stow them in the down position and you have one of the most ergonomic casting reels on the market (included on 40 size only).
