Penn Jigmaster - preferred by live bait anglers because of its high-speed retrieve and quick-take apart frame, useful for changing spools when fishing conditions dictate.
The Penn Jigmaster was one of the earliest designed casting reels from Penn and is still going strong as a favorite casting reel for anglers fishing the Albacore Day Boats on the West Coast, as well as Kingfish anglers in the Southeast. The Jigmaster features a quick take-apart feature that allows anglers to change spools (and line classes) while on the water. This little trick has saved more than one or two fishing trips for anglers, when the fish become line and leader shy, and scaling down of tackle is required. Needless to say, keeping a spare spool or two on the boat or in the tackle box is a great idea, and allows anglers to move up or down a line class in a matter of seconds.
  • Quick take-apart frame makes it easy to change spools with different line weights.
  • Black-anodized aluminum spool.
  • Durable and lightweight composite side plates.
  • Manganese-bronze main gear.
  • Stainless steel pinion.
  • Ht-100 powered Drag System.
  • Counter-balanced handle with oversized fighting knob.
  • Corrosion-resistant chrome-plated external parts.

A classic that will always have a place with my gear.

It's hard to give a star rating on this reel. In a market with reels like the tld, avet, and so on, it is big, heavy, outdated, and nowhere near as smooth. That said, I still love the classic look and feel, and you will not find a tougher more versatile reel for the money. Penn's drag material is incredible! There is a tremendous amount of aftermarket support for this reel making it one that can be truly customized to your liking. The quick take apart feature is awesome. Turn one screw by hand, then lift and twist and the reel comes apart into 3 main pieces which makes rinsing with freshwater a snap. Another great thing about that, is that if you have multiple spools and your thumb slips on a cast, instead of spending the next hour untangling it, just reel it in, cut the line, and swap in a fresh spool! I own a saltist, an avet, and an accurate...and I still keep 2 of these ready to fish.

I surf fish often catching fish weighing up to 45lbs. What type of fishing line and type of rod would you suggest using with this Pen Jigmaster reel? Do you ship outside of theU.S.A.?
We ship outside the USA all the time. Shipping costs are calculated in our shopping cart. We would recommend using braided line on that reel, paired up with a Penn Torque surf rod. http://www.tackledirect.com/penn-torque-surf-rods.html

With the drag range on this reel, I wouldn't use more than about 30lb line. In the surf, especially if its rocky, I would run 30lbs power pro with about 100 yards of 30lb mono on top. The mono can handle the scrapes against the rocks a lot better than braid. Penn's surf rods are very good. One note on whatever rod you use, I wrap electrical tape around the joint a few times. I've had the tip section of my surf rods twist in the joint when slinging 8 & bait. I've caught 100lbs sharks with this reel loaded with 30, you just have to work the drag and let him run some.
