Penn is known for its higher capacity reels. I wanted a compact spinning reel that was lightweight, held a lot of braid/mono for salmon and steelhead, and was affordable. This reel is cheaper than any of my Shimano spinning reels, has a tremendous line capacity for power-pro braid, and is smooth and quiet. I am definitely happy with this purchase and this spinning reel with be used for big smallies in the spring, largemouth in the summer, and of course salmon and steelhead in the fall. There is a reason why PENN has been in business so long, and this reel is a prime example of quality, performance, and affordability.
