PENN INTERNTAIONAL 16VSX


SKU: PEN16VSX     (Add to wish list)
Penn International V-Series 16VSX 2-Speed Lever Drag Reel

Penn International VSX models are constructed to achieve the extreme drag ranges expected by anglers fishing with super-braids. Unlike other products that advertise their high-potential drag settings but fail to inform you that these drag settings result in drag curves that are anything but angler friendly, and have a high potential to pop lines, pull hooks, and result in lost fish, Penn VSX models have been engineered to achieve these extreme drag settings while maintaining an appropriate and smooth drag curve throughout the entire range of the drag-lever. Simply put, Penn Engineering at its finest.
 
The Penn International 16VSX packs a huge punch for such a small reel. Penn has designed this Fishing Reel with Braided Spectra Line in mind. For one to truely understand the nature of this reel you must think of it basically as a 50lb Class Reel. To maximize the performance of the 16VSX we suggest spooling with 500yds of 80lb Hollow-Core Spectra and a 50yd Topshot of 80lb Diamond Monofilament for stretch. For an incredibly light and powerful combo match the Penn International 16VSX with the Fisherman's Outfitter 50-130lb Custom Stand-Up Rod.
