Always had senators and these and they are great!
had one for over 20 years and it is still going as good as the first day.

Time tested and truly legendary reel.
Great reel for catching small tuna and smaller sharks. My father and his father grew up using Penn reels and had a bunch of the Senators. My grandfathers old Penn is still going to this day and the reel is older than me (33), with little to no maintenance other than a little bit of oil here and there and a good freshwater spray down after saltwater use.
ProsCant beat this thing. You abuse it and it laughs at it.
Conswish they made it in different colors, but I get it's the iconic Penn maroon

ProsLast you'll have to buy. Parts are easy to get.

Penn 113H2LW
Great reel for the price. Did not get to use it yet but I know that it will do just fine.
ProsCan't beat the price. Bought it on sale
ConsI stripped down reel and it was just caked on with blue grease. I took most of it off and put grease at the important spots. Now reel free spools way better

Nice Conventional reel
Great reel for the price. The reel is strong and durable to withstand inshore and light offshore conditions for bottom fishing. This was my first conventional reel without a level wind. Had no issues so far.

Classic wire line jigging reel
This has proven to be a great reel over the years. Perhaps I am biased since I grew up wire-line jigging off Sow and Pigs/rest of the Elizabethan Islands but I love this reel. If you are looking to troll monel/stainless/lead core then this is a true workhorse of a reel that will last you years. If you are lucky enough to find an old stainless spool grab and replace 8O)
ProsRuggedness, longevity
ConsThey no longer come with a stainless spool (hard to find now).

Old Reliable
My father grew up using penn senators and he taught me to always use them. They are strong, reliable, and meant to take a beating. At this point I've accumulated so many that if something breaks I have parts for it and they are simple reels to care for. On my boat all you will see on my conventional rods is senators for the most part in various sizes for different purposes.
Prosstrong, durable, reliable, simple
Consno infinite anti-reverse

Classic Wench
What a nice reel, great drag, built like a tank, easy to repair....fantastic. Great for big trolling spreads and heavy weight. I'm gonna try shark fishing off the beach with this one next...should be fun. I have no worries it can handle it, just if I can.
ProsSuper tough

Penn reliability
Been using senators since the early 70's as a boy. Was a great dependable reel then and still is today. Impossible to beat the bang for your buck you get with these special senator reels.
ProsGreat drag, line capacity and low cost

hi when replacing drag washers non metallic ones do you grease them
1 Answers
Certain non-metallic washers contain a solid lubricant, making them ideal in installations where external lubrication is difficult or undesirable. I would still recommend using a lubricant when installing non metallic washers.

Are these good reels for land base shark fishing blacktips ????
1 Answers
The Senators are a very popular option for land based shark fishing. So long as you choose a larger model with sufficient line capacity for you application this reel will preform well for you.

hi, Is this reel HT-100? and doing bottom fishing with 4/0 size isit the right choice with that gear ratio? thanks,
1 Answers
The Senator H2 does not use the HT-100 drag washers. It can be used for bottom fishing but, depending on the depth, you may want a slightly faster reel.

Can I use nylon on the bottom and wire on the top with the 114H2 6/0 reel?
1 Answers
You could use this for wire but Penn makes a reel with a spool that is designed for wire. The 113H2SP http://www.tackledirect.com/penn-113h2sp-special-senator-reel.html
