Penn Reel Information
|Building upon a legacy of World Record catches, Penn Fishing Tackle has developed a revolutionary drag material that will obsolete all other drag materials in Big Game Lever Drag reels.Proven to last 100 hours with less than a 1%drop (competiiton dropped 25%) in measureable drag performance, Penn Dura Drag ™ is the smoothest drag on the market!|
Revolutionizing the way two-speed reels operate, Penn ’s Quick Shift mechanism is the easiest and most convenient on the market.No more fumbling for small buttons when in the heat of the battle, or trying to manipulate the handle into the correct position,Penn’s Quick Shift engages automatically with a deliberate bump of the shift button (low-speed) or spin of the shift knob (high-speed).This is the easiest, and most angler-friendly two-speed feature on the market,and can be perfomed without letting go of the handle.
Designed to prevent unintentional changes to a Lever-Drag ’s drag setting by good-intentioned charters, guests, or “expert ” anglers,,Penn ’s Push-to-Turn requires the drag pre-set knob to be intentionally “pushed ” while rotating the pre-set to gain more(clockwise)or less drag (counter-clockwise).
Engineered to allow anglers to modify their drag set-up on conventional star-drag reels to a system that can be set for light medium, and heavy (extra-heavy available on certain models)drag settings by rearranging various keyed drag washers, Versa-Drag ™ increases the functionality of traditional star--drag conventional reels.
Penn ’s Infinite Anti-Reverse was designed to utilize a super-smooth, heavy-duty roller bearing. Penn ’s Infinite Anti-Reverse provides anglers with instant hook-sets, smoother performance, and increased reliability. Thus eliminating the kickback found in older reels with a dog-system anti-reverse.
Computer-model balanced and tuned,Penn ’s Techno-Balanced Rotor eliminates rotor wobble in spinning reels. Coupled with Penn ’s proprietary oscillation pattern,the Techno-Balanced Rotor improves spinning reel performance and line-lay, a must for fishing popular superbraided lines.
Designed to withstand the pressures large gamefish and the new braided lines exert,Penn ’s Full Metal Body utilizes the latest technology to construct lightweight, metal frames for durability, reliability, and performance. Full Metal Body is the frame of choice for taking trophy fish, whether on light tackle or heavy tackle.
Penn ’s Worm Drive provides constant gear engagement for smoothness and reliability,and also provides for perfect line lay. Inherently a stronger gear system than typical spinning reel gearing, Penn ’s Worm Drive is perfect for light-line pursuits of trophy catches.
Penn ’s revolutionary Leveline Oscillation System was designed by Penn to provide anglers with the most consistent and reliable line lay, even with the advent of the newer super-braid lines. Penn ’s Leveline extends the spool oscillation at the top and bottom of the main shaft ’s travel path to compensate for the rotor speed.
HT100 has been Penn ’s drag material of choice and is the benchmark of all drag materials. Designed originally as the brake material for supersonic aircraft, Penn ’s HT100 provides a smooth, consistent and dependable drag performance.
