Penn International VSX Reels are constructed to achieve the extreme drag ranges expected by anglers fishing with super-braids. Unlike other products that advertise their high-potential drag settings but fail to inform you that these drag settings result in drag curves that are anything but angler friendly, losing fish as a result of popped lines and pulled hooks. Penn International VSX Reels have been engineered to achieve these extreme drag settings while maintaining an appropriate and smooth drag curve throughout the entire range of the drag-lever. Simply put, Penn International VSX Reels display Penn Engineering at its finest.
Features include: Full metal body, one-piece machined aluminum frame and side-plates for the ultimate in gear alignment, Push-To-Turn preset knob keeps the drag where it needs to be, Ratcheted lever prevents "drag creep" caused by hours of trolling and vibrations, Dura-Drag washers virtually eliminate hesitation, even under extreme drag settings, Braid-Ready to handle the strain that braided lines put on a reel, Four ball bearings for smooth performance in salt water, and Unmatched cranking power for landing big fish. Proudly made in the USA.
