Spinning reels are popular for their ease of use. These reels mount on the underside of the spinning rod. The spool is parallel to the rod and does not rotate as you cast. This design reduces line tangling for a simple fishing experience.
Baitcasting and conventional reels work with the bait of the lure as it pulls on the line and turns the spool to release more line. This brand of reels is typically preferred by more experienced anglers, and better stands up to bigger game fish—an asset during your saltwater fishing expedition.
Keep in mind that construction and durability are particularly important for saltwater anglers. PENN® fishing reels are designed to stand up to saltwater corrosion.
Line capacity is a central factor in the selection of your new PENN® fishing reel. Saltwater fishers generally need added line capacity for fishing in deep waters.
The more ball bearings used, the smoother your reel works.
Lower gear rations on your PENN® fishing reel give you more fighting power for large fish.
