    What NEW reel/rod models would you like to see from PENN?

    I know they are expensive if you made them in Torque line but the key sizes for the lefty Fathom LD2 priority should be: 40N 15 regular Fathom 2 star in 25N for surface iron.

    Would have made my life easier if it happened that way for me!

    Lefty or righty?!

    I am right handed but prefer lefty crank reels from 1) learning on spinners with left crank as a kid 2) Want my stronger arm to pull on the fish

    Look for a 60-80# reel in lefty for big bluefin

    My main intrigue with the 800N is the ability to use it as a yo-yo reel as well. how does the height on the 800 vs 800N compare

    Look for a 60-80# reel in lefty for big bluefin

    What Valiant size would be best for all around use? Is the 800N enough or should you just get the 1000 which has a higher range to fish at

    Penn FATHOM II 15SDCasting Special....Replacing KNOBBY Mag

    the level wind squall does not have the live spindle so it won’t cast well. I have the 12 size in left and it’s a far better for light line flylining than my low profiles

    are Shimao TranX a bust?

    I keep the Tranx 400 mostly for colt snipers and lighter lures that need max casting distance and the ability to burn it in quickly. My Komodo 400 is used for power because of line capacity, SS main gear and big power handle. I casts well with heavier jigs than the Tranx. I use both 400 size...

    are Shimao TranX a bust?

    The Tranx is a great casting reel. Better than my Lexa, RTB, and Komodo. But it has the weakest drag. It’s not bad at all just comparatively speaking. The drag curve is steep so be careful accidentally bumping it. Komodo has the best brute strength. The Lexa is the tweener. The Tranx isn’t a...

    CAV-12IILX

    I wish it was more like the 40N since I already have the 25N and 15XN. It’s tough finding good left reels

    What NEW reel/rod models would you like to see from PENN?

    I had cal blueprint it so technically it can fish 60. Just limited on capacity. Freespool is fantastic like I think I can fly a goldfish

    Penn Fathom Low Profile 400 6.2 ratio is the same as the Abu Revo Toro Beast T3 60 6.2

    part #8 is a bushing in the RTB but a bearing in the Fathom. That’s where the extra bearing comes from. Not sure how significant that upgrade is.
