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.

Ideal for any offshore challenge, Penn International V ARA Stand-up Rods feature all AFTCO Rollers for minimal line wear, tubular P450 Glass, and a machined, Aluminum Butt, gimbal, and reel seat for maximum lifting power and durability. Foregrip material is EVA foam for the ultimate in durability and comfort.
Designed for the extreme angler, Penn International VSX Reels are intended for Big-Game Anglers fishing super-braid lines with heavier drag settings.

Good working but had failure after 6 months
January 25, 2014
I used this when sailing from Guatemala to Hisponala worked fine. Put away until we went to BVI and pulled out gears quit working,
Had to carry home and contacted PENN who were great. They paid shipping both ways, fixed the problem, and turn around time was great.
ProsGreat item
Consthink all products might have an issue but having a company stand behind the product is huge.
