It is a very durable reel
May 20, 2015
My Penn 706Z Series reel is a very durable fishing reel, I have drilled it to make sand flush out and I have been using it for 15 years and it is still going strong. If I ever need new parts, they are available now that there is a new release of the 706z. I love mine and you will love yours!

I had this reel twenty years ago, and now I have one again and it's still my favorite reel. I have it paired with an 11 foot lamiglas and I have caught a lot of big bass and blues!

Ultimate dependable reel!
April 2, 2015
This reel is the most dependable reel under $500. If I ever have a problem, it is so easy to take apart and repair! Packed with grease, I can fish it totally submerged for hours.

Simple and great

Very straight forward design. The Z series of reels has a long standing reputation. Although it doesn't have all the bells and whistles of newer reels on the market, the Z series will provide years or service with little maintenance. Parts are cheap and easy to find. Straight forward design means anyone with low mechanical knowledge can breakdown, repair, and assemble these reels. Even while out on a trip.

In the photograph of the spool I noticed that there is no black rubber gasket but rather that the spool is smooth. How does this affect the use of braid line. Will the braid slip? Does the spool require a backing of some sort and if so what should be used and how much?
Hello Jim. It is indeed smooth. To make it work with braid, all you would need to do is add a small amount of mono line to give it grip. You could also use a layer of electrical tape which would also make the braid go on perfectly.

hi, dose the bail less will effect my casting distance?specially that i never use to it but i really want. please advise.Tanks
The bail less will not affect your casting distance. It may take a few hours to get used to though. You will need to "educate" your finger to catch the line at the end of your cast and place it on the line roller.

Why go ball-less?
Fewer parts that get in the way and can break. Very easy to get used to. Once you go bailless, you will never go back.

which one is better?? 704Z or 706Z .... and why??
The 706Z is a bail-less model. The 706Z is also a little larger in size to hold more line. The 704Z is the bailed model and is a little lighter in weight. Both reels have the same drag rating.

Any lefty options available for either model?
From the information we have been given so far pertaining to the new release of the Penn Z series there is no left hand model available as of now. So far, we have not been given further information from Penn as to whether or not there are going to be left handed models.

Whats a good pole for the 706Z reel I fish from a pier
The Penn Prevail 9' is a good rod to match with the 706z. It's a light rod and has the length to give you good casting distance but it isn't too long to lose its functionality while fishing from a pier.
