Sneak Peak PENNS New Slammer III
Penn is bringing back its popular Penn Slammer III with the upgrade of many new modern technologies. This series is built to withstand the rigors of modern day fishing and comes in the full range of sizes to tackle everything from trout to tuna.
Built for heavy duty fishing from either boat or shore, and trusted by charter captains all over the world.
The Slammer III reels feature our new IPX6 Sealed System which keeps water out of the gear box and drag system in heavy spray and sea conditions. We’re also using our updated Slammer Drag System which now utilizes our proprietary Dura-Drag material. With the computer-controlled CNC gear technology system, the precision brass main, pinion and oscillation gears are individually machined for exact tolerances to provide the smoothest operation.
Eight models of the Slammer III will be available, ranging in size from 3500 to 10500 models. Gear ratios range from 6.2:1 with 37” of line retrieve on the smaller reels to 4.2:1 with 43” of line retrieve on the largest. Maximum drags start at 30lbs in the smaller models and run to 60lbs on the largest. The oversized reel handle grip gives the angler added control during the fight.
The 3500 Slammer III is the smallest of the family weighing 13.9oz while the 10500 weighs 43.1oz.
