Penn manufactures four types of reels-conventional, international, baitcast and spinning reels.
Penn's conventional reels, like the Senator and the Baja Special, are designed to handle heavier line and provide fishermen with torque when reeling in game.
Designed to provide strength and durability for the biggest game, international reels are made with one-piece frames and stainless steel gears.
Penn's baitcast reels, like their GS Performance reel, provide casting accuracy and give fishermen control by allowing users to adjust drag settings.
Penn's spinning reels are designed for lighter lines and are particularly effective when casting into wind. Penn's spinning reels feature anti-reverse roller bearings and multiple drag settings.
Where to Buy
Penn reels can be found online at Amazon.com and at Cabelas.com. Additional stores can be looked up at Penn's website.
