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.
Pros:strong, durable, reliable, simple
Cons:no infinite anti-reverse
