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

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.

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!

Entering a tournament? The international will never let you down on the water. You can have the best boat and the best crew but between the crew and the fish is the rod and reel.

Lighter than previous penn 80 series reels. I like that they are sticking with the silver. Excellent machining, smooth operation , smooth drag , nice loud clicker.

The Penn International is my go to reel when it comes to offshore trolling. These are by far the best reels I own and have been around for a long time. It was great to add their new series to my arsenal.

Beautiful style, very light weight

Very surprised to feel how light weight this reel is in comparison to competition. Despite that it's very strong. Looks beautiful too.
