Penn International VSX models are constructed to achieve the extreme drag ranges expected by anglers fishing with super-braids. Unlike other products that advertise their high-potential drag settings but fail to inform you that these drag settings result in drag curves that are anything but angler friendly, and have a high potential to pop lines, pull hooks, and result in lost fish, Penn VSX models have been engineered to achieve these extreme drag settings while maintaining an appropriate and smooth drag curve throughout the entire range of the drag-lever. Simply put, Penn Engineering at its finest.

  • Machine-Cut, Heat-Treated Stainless Steel Main and Pinion Gears, and Drag Cam
  • Powerful Double-Disc Drag with 150-Degree Drag Quadrant
  • Graduated Push-to-Turn Preset
  • One-Touch Shifting

A very good reel
August 7, 2012
One of the two top saltwater reels. Yes you guessed right, the other one is Japanese. I own a 30VSX, equipped with 400 yards, 100 lb Powerpro, plus 60 yards monofilament. I have caught, several Bluefins and a lot of Greater Amberjacks. Great reel, no problem, after 8 years of heavy use.
ProsSmooth retrieve The drag never fails Durable clicker with beautiful sound satisfactory capacity, for braid line
ConsIt could hold more line

Hi there, I am from South Africa and Unfortunatly dont get the vsx 12 here, so it is hard to determine the actual size of the reel.. Is it about the same size as the torque 40 star drag? Or a lot bigger? Could you perhapse give the dimensions or even photos for comparison purposes? I am really interested in buying a set and shipping them here. In addition to the above what penn rod combination would you suggest for this reel if you were trolling and drifting with live baits for tuna, wahoo, dorado etc? Many thanks.
Sorry that we could not provide pictures. The Penn VSX 12 is noticeably bigger (11 ounces) and the Penn Ally Boat Rods would pair well with Penn VSX 12.

What would be the best rod match with the vsx12 for Florida Gulf bottom fishing for mainly grouper and snapper?
There are many rods that will work well with that reel. We suggest you check out the Penn Blue Water Carnage (PEN-0986). It is light, powerful, and designed exactly for the kind of fishing you want to do.
