Nice to see Penn make it right
The Senators are now made in the U.S.A. again. Know a bunch of old salty dogs that swore by Penn's name as their only go to reel, but were rightfully ticked off and boycotted buying the brand when they learned the Senators among other models were outsourced to China.

Awesome reel
I purchased this reel for a up and coming deep drop trip here in the north east haven’t used it but feels like a power house of a reel this is a 4/0 reel so you would have no problem reel in real deep monsters

The do it all reel!
Cant beat this new 113 for line capacity, drag, simplicity, durability and price!! I use this for big BFT to 150 pounds on an extra heavy rod. I fly line big sardines on 80 lb braid and leader. Its real beefy and 27 lbs of drag and about 30 at sunset! I think this reael smokes all others in the price range!!
ProsPrice, durability, drag and line capacity
ConsIf your a poser don't get this reel. Its a plain looking.

Heavy and solid USA made reel with stainless steel gear
Bought it in the summer and finally got to use it now in Nov. Felt like the great old USA made Penn reel. A little heavey for me but felt solid and has great cranking power! Hope they will make one in 3/0 or 2/0 size, that will be perfect.

Perfect reel for panga fishing in Baja
These are my "go-to" reels when I travel down to Baja to chase yellowtail, grouper, and snapper. Traveling to Mexico to fish is tough on your gear. These reels are built like tanks and can take a beating!

113hn US Senator is SOlid
This Penn Senator US model is one of my prized reels that I own. This riddle is primarily used for jigging that it is the narrow model . It's casting ability is phenomenal . It's like capacity is pretty great holding a pretty good amount of Spectra with a mono top shot.The handle is a nice size to match The meaty the reel.The live free spindle really is a great feature on this 113hn I have is really great. This reel castsjust as well as the Penn jigmaster that used to made in the US. Nice loud clicker that all Penn reels are known for . This reel is going to last a life time like all Penn reels made in the US with a little bit of maintenance every now and then ,which is a breeze to do by th way .To much to say about this reel. I love this
Pros-Live free spindle -super drag -nice handle meaty handle -aluminum anodized spool -loud bait alarm -nice anti reverse feature -great casting -perfect for jigging -easy maintenance
ConsWish their was more options for side plates like anmercan flag maybe
