Silver model 70 wide 2 speed. Penn reel. This is one outstanding off shore reel. Line capacity is excellent. Drag is smooth. Excellent made reel.
ProsExcellent size and not to big for using as a stand up rod. This reel is absolutely well made and able to handle any size off shore fish.
ConsI see no cons in this reel.

Solid reel - much better for my needs
February 8, 2021
As an amateur fisherman in the Caribbean hunting tunas, marlin, and mahi I was told that starting out with a basic reel like the Penn Squall would work fine - and most of the time they do.

However, when using a planer or other device to get my baits deeper the drag on the Squall could not handle it and I ended up burning through a reel in only 3 months.

Switching over to this heavy duty reel has worked out well - no drag issues and the larger fish that attack my deeper baits have all be landed - no spooling as happened on the Squall.
ProsHeavy duty.

The Standard for Big Game Fishing
January 9, 2021
The Penn Int 50w is a great big fish reel that provides plenty of line capacity and plenty of drag but in a workable size as the 70w, 80w, and 130w become heavy and overkill for almost all BFTand YFT in NJ/NY waters. NEW VI series is great .... lighter, provides 45lb of drag, and plenty of line capacity. I really like the new “banana” handle .... it feels great. Nice loud clicker too. The adjustable strike drag is a great feature!!!!!!
ProsEverything ..... this is the standard for big game fishing!!!!

Penn internationals have been the standard for many years and these new Penn VISWS are lighter and even stronger.

Stellar Reel

This reel delivers everything you would expect from a top of the line USA made reel. First trip out this reel delivered a 52lb yellow fin, and a pair of Dog tooth tuna.

This is a beautiful piece of equipment. Holds up the the Penn reputation with fishing expectations without question. The graphics on this are so impressive they make your buddies stop and do a double take.
ProsExceeded expectations on performance and visual appearance. The display case is a great bonus
ConsIt's almost too beautiful to use!

Unlike the smaller sizes, The design on the 80s and 130s didn’t really change from previous generation. The coating is patchy and uneven in some places, color on left side plate is noticeably different. Sure they will work but kinda expected more.

The best Penn reel ever
February 10, 2020
Wow! This reel is the best Penn has ever made in my opinion. The changes to the handle and high low gear shift are very well received. Very impressed.

Heavy duty!

My hubby got this especially for pier fishing. What makes this reel great, it's made in the USA! In Philadelphia!! Can't wait to try pulling in a big red drum, or a big blue fish, or something big! It's kind of expensive, but I believe it's worth the money. It is well made and will be a great addition to our growing ocean fishing tackle!
