Two new reels that feature in PENN’s line up, and ready to hit the shelves of tackle stores soon, are the new Conflict threadline, and the Squall 2 Speed Lever Drag light game reel.
PENN’S NEW CONFLICT SPINNING REEL Designed for the technical inshore angler who is looking for top-line performance, PENN’s new Conflict reel is a light weight, smooth casting reel capable of applying high drag pressures to quell inshore game fish. With a stealthy, low key cosmetic black on black finish and smoky gray markings, the Conflict may look quiet, but one cast and it demonstrates the best of PENN craftsmanship and engineering. The new Conflict features a full metal body, machine-cut marine grade bronze main gear, and hardened stainless steel pinion gear. The 2500- 4000 models use a high strength graphite rotor, while the 5000-8000 models feature an aluminium rotor. The rotor designs are Techno-Balanced for a long lasting smooth retrieve. Internally, each Conflict reel has seven sealed stainless steel ball bearings, and an infinite anti reverse bearing. The HT-100™ Versa-Drag™, carbon fibre drag washers allow for a wide range of drag settings applicable to various fishing conditions. PENN proprietary grease is applied to the drag washers to ensure longevity. The heavy-duty aluminium bail wire resists bending, dents and nicks that may potentially happen when fishing for large saltwater gamefish. The braid ready Superline Spool™ is engraved with line capacity rings, giving the angler instant awareness of the amount of line remaining on the spool while fighting fast running fish. Available in six sizes. Line capacity shown in yards/pound line.
