This range has been designed to cope with the extreme drag settings required when fishing with braided main lines. Unlike other reels, the smooth drag curve created with this range gives you total confidence when playing the biggest, fastest fish in our oceans.
The main problem with using braided main lines is the speed at which a hooked fish can take line from the spool. If the drag can’t cope then the result is often a pulled hook, or even a snapped line! Penn’s engineers realised the potential problem and quickly set to work on a space-age drag system that eliminates the threat of lost fish.
Extreme engineering coupled with the most modern materials and manufacturing processes has created one of the finest, most reliable reels ever produced. There isn’t a fish out there that can get away from a Penn International VSX!
