The Penn Slammer range of spinning reels remain true to Penn's commitment to provide anglers the world over with tough, reliable yet smooth fishing reels. Popular amongst professional fishing charters and fishing guides as a rugged simple to use fishing reel that works day in day out and can handle the hard fishing environments subjected to it by hard fighting fish and all levels of anglers.
The range of Penn Slammer spinning reels covers nearly every aspect of freshwater and saltwater fishing. There are 5 models across the range, from the 260, which is ideal for freshwater and estuary work, all the way up to the 760, suited to tackling even the toughest of saltwater fish species.
The features of the Penn Slammer series are very impressive. The gearing system is comprised of a machine cut alloy main and bronze pinion. The stainless steel shaft is supported in 3 places. All this is contained in a full metal body. Five stainless steel shielded bearings and an infinite anti reverse bearing add up to make the Slammer spinning reels great value for money.
Another feature that stands the Slammer fishing reels apart from other spinning reels is the Penn Power Drag System. Basically the Power Drag has 2 complete systems. One conventional system recessed in the spool and another extra large system under the spool. This creates a sandwich effect, which disperses the drag pressure over a much larger surface area. This offers superior smoothness, increased drag range and fish stopping power.
Anglers want two things from a fishing reel, power and durability. Penn Engineers have taken this into account and have designed a frame that is made from a special high-strength alum-alloy to produce a housing that encases rugged gearing system of the Penn Slammer spinning reels.
This is the finest and smoothest spinning reel ever manufactured by Penn.
