I quickly realized that few had any saltwater experience, let alone any equipment, so I went about assembling several "loaner" combos to supplement my old arsenal of tackle that I'd hauled down from NJ when I relocated to VA years ago.
I should note that I typically buy upper-end fishing tackle. If not the best, as close as I can get to it, within the bounds of my financial reality.
Were these reels for my use, I would have purchased a more expensive model, but as "loaners" for a bunch of college kids, they're perfect. Good enough to last for many years, but not so expensive that I would suffer a heart attack should one accidentally get lost over the side.
My 4-star rating reflects my overall assessment of the reels when compared to the rest of the Penn line and is not intended as criticism. If you're looking for high-end equipment, move on up scale, but if you want a nice quality, affordable reel for occasional saltwater fishing trips, or to equip younger family members, it's hard to beat the Penn Warfare Series.
