Penn TRQS5-G TORQUE Spinning Reel Gold
|Mono Line Capacity|
|Braid Line Capacity|
Anglers needing a rugged spinning reel for heavy saltwater angling can rely on the new Penn Torque spinning reel in three sizes for any briny situation. With this USA-made reel, shark and striper chasers can take to the Montauk surf with size 5 bucktails and spoons while Miami anglers can handle the tackle testing sailfish and tarpon. In the Gulf, yellowfins and cobia will be no match. Fully sealed, saltwater and sand simply canít get into the fully machined aluminum body, the 7+1 stainless steel bearings and the patented Versa-drag. The oversized HT-100 Versa-Drag system allows for multiple drag settings to match everchanging fishing situations. Available in classic Penn gold or the new black with gold accents, the Torque features an integral clutch sleeve to eliminate any back play of the rotor, one-piece aluminum frame with forged aluminum spool and sideplates, and a rugged one-piece handle arm. The 100% stainless steel bail features a unique system under the rotor where the angler can choose between automatic or manual trip at the touch of a switch. The high capacity spool is braid ready, which means the reel is built to withstand the strains that braided lines put on a reel.

VERY VERSATILE FOR BIG FISH

ALL I CAN SAY IS THIS IS PROBABLY MY FAVORITE SPINNING REEL. IVE DUNKED IT , DROPPED IT AND IT STILL DOESN'T MISS A BEAT. I THINK ITS A MUST FOR EVERY GUY WHO FISHES JETTIES FOR SNOOK REDS AND STRIPERS.
ProsIT DOES EXACTLY WHAT ITS ADVERTISED TO DO. AND THE PRICE IS MORE APPEALING THAN THE OTHERS OF ITS CLASS

I have a Saltiga, old Penns, Zeebaas, and this reel is up there. I'll say this though, I feel the bail wire is a bit flimsy. I sent my Torque 5 to Penn, and had it converted to bailess. In no way, does the bail feel as solid as the Saltiga. I also hated the handle, and installed a power knob. Now it looks better. I like this reel so much, I'm already saving up for a Torque 5 bailess black.
ConsNot as smooth as my Saltiga
Best reel I've ever used

I've been fishing for 30+ years and never spent the money on a quality reel. I've never had the money to buy much more than your average proced real at a sporting good store but love fishing so I figured I'd treat myself seeing that I'm really getting into this surf fishing since moving to long island this year. As soon as I felt this rell I knew it would be love at first cast.You can see and feel the quality. I am partial to PENN having grown up in Philly. Casts great, feels good in your hands and handles fish no problem although most of the big fish moved out by the time I got it.
