Penn TRQS9-B TORQUE Spinning Reel Black
|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.

No Complaints, Great Reel

I bought this TRQS9 to go with a St. Croix Avid Surf Rod and 65 lb. braid. Great addition to the setup. Holds a ton of line, the bail stays where you put it, smooth action, and best of all it's sealed. About a month ago I hooked up with a stingray somewhere north of 60 pounds. At first it's peeling off line so I cranked the drag down almost all the way and put the breaks on it. I can barely hold the rod now 50 pounds of drag! A couple times the sting ray laid on the bottom and wouldn't move the Penn Torque winched this thing in no problem.
Pros:This thing is a high speed winch. Tons of drag, fast line pick up, sealed- no sand or salt water.
Cons:It's a little heavy but, I use Penn reels that were my Grandfathers so heavy should be read: durable.
