  • Stainless steel reinforced side plates.
  • Multi-disc star drag system for smooth and consistent drag.

Great reel for the price. Did not get to use it yet but I know that it will do just fine.
ProsCan't beat the price. Bought it on sale
ConsI stripped down reel and it was just caked on with blue grease. I took most of it off and put grease at the important spots. Now reel free spools way better

Nice Conventional reel

Great reel for the price. The reel is strong and durable to withstand inshore and light offshore conditions for bottom fishing. This was my first conventional reel without a level wind. Had no issues so far.

Classic wire line jigging reel
April 24, 2015
This has proven to be a great reel over the years. Perhaps I am biased since I grew up wire-line jigging off Sow and Pigs/rest of the Elizabethan Islands but I love this reel. If you are looking to troll monel/stainless/lead core then this is a true workhorse of a reel that will last you years. If you are lucky enough to find an old stainless spool grab and replace 8O)
ProsRuggedness, longevity
ConsThey no longer come with a stainless spool (hard to find now).

Old Reliable
February 16, 2015
My father grew up using penn senators and he taught me to always use them. They are strong, reliable, and meant to take a beating. At this point I've accumulated so many that if something breaks I have parts for it and they are simple reels to care for. On my boat all you will see on my conventional rods is senators for the most part in various sizes for different purposes.
Prosstrong, durable, reliable, simple
Consno infinite anti-reverse

What a nice reel, great drag, built like a tank, easy to repair....fantastic. Great for big trolling spreads and heavy weight. I'm gonna try shark fishing off the beach with this one next...should be fun. I have no worries it can handle it, just if I can.
ProsSuper tough

Been using senators since the early 70's as a boy. Was a great dependable reel then and still is today. Impossible to beat the bang for your buck you get with these special senator reels.

this was my first offshore fishing reel. it is a super simple designed reel. with very little practice you can take it completely apart and fix anything that ever goes wrong with it making it last forever. I still carry mine in my tackle bag in case one of my new reels were to mess up.
Prosprice, indestructible, super simple design, easy to work on.

Clasic reels, the best value for money
August 3, 2012
I would not review a classic reel, but it happened to catch a bluefin approximately 80 pounds using a Penn113H, with 500 yds Powerpro 50 lb, and I was impressed one more time from the capabilities of the reel. I use it since 2004, and I have catched more than 50 big fish since then
ProsThe drag system The reliability of the reel The line capacity the weight the durability
Consthe handle knob, but it can be improved

I have a pair of these on some bunker spoon rods, hate the wire and would like to switch over to dacron or braid. Is that feasible with this reel? Thanks
Yes, you can use either a dacron or braided line with this reel. It is not specific to wire line only.
