Still a "classic!"
November 16, 2013
I gave the reel a "test run" the other night in the Florida keyes Caught a large Mangrove snapper,good sized margate,7yellowtails(several "flags"), and the biggest ladyfish I have ever seen Weighed in at 51/2 pounds The reel feels slightly smoother than my old 706Z New reel has an added ball-bearing on drive gear Kudos for the folks at Penn to bring back this classic,loved reel
Pros:Simple design with high quality parts Strong alloy frame and spool drag is excellent:smooth and consistent Ht-100 washer have good stopping power
Cons:Can,t think of any Oh,it needs at least 10ball-bearings!!( Intended as humor!!)
