Spooled a new Penn 30 VISX narrow topless for one of my west coast long-range customers today and here are the specs plus some impressions and pictures. Using 100lb Tuf-Line Guide's Choice hollow spectra and double digit pressure on my recently calibrated and verified Triangle HD140MMII, the reel took 800 yards 100lb hollow, plus I step-spliced another 50 yards of 130lb hollow on top. The reel is light but feels solid like Penn Internationals always do. Best free-spool I've seen and a really nice positive 2-speed mechanism. The articulated handle feels perfect and I really like the beveled and tapered lugs if you intend to use a harness with the reel. I'd prefer a lower ratio in low gear however, this being 1.4:1, (hello Cal?) but aside from that I like it! Can't wait for the feedback from anglers this season. I threw in a free 100lb fluorocarbon wind-on for the customer; hope he catches his super cow on it!
