Amazon.com

Long considered the gold standard of big game fishing reels, Gold Label International V-Series Lever Drag Reels offer some of the most advanced and reliable fish-fighting performances worldwide. V-Series Reels feature full metal bodies with ergonomically designed and contoured one-piece, aluminum machined frames and oversized power handles for exceptional cranking power and strength. Capable of landing any fish in the deep, the V-Series Reels have been designed and constructed with real-life input and feedback from countless anglers, captains, and professional mates worldwide--leading to reels that feature state-of-the-art technologies for deep water fishing, and making them the some of the most reliable and angler-friendly reels on the market.

Key performance features on the Gold Label International V-Series VSW Reels include the ratcheted lever drag system that eliminates 'drag creep' caused by hours of trolling and diesel engine vibration. The ratcheted lever ensures that the amount of drag being used when a fish is hooked is consistent with the amount that you have preset. In addition, the reels are equipped with Dura-Drag, one of the most reliable and durable drags available that make snapped lines, jerky drags, pulled hooks, and hesitations a distant memory. The 2-speed reels feature an easy to use Quick Shift system that engages automatically with a deliberate bump of the shift button for low-speed or a spin of the shift knob for high-speed and can be performed without letting go of the handle. A favorite among skippers, the Push-to-Turn preset drag system prevents 'unknowing anglers' from accidentally adjusting the drag when backs are turned. Additional features that distinguish the VSW reels from the competition include four stainless steel ball bearings, a loud ratchet alarm, and a Braid Ready design that can handle the additional strain that braided lines can put on a reel.

Ranging from the brawny 80VSW Model with a 950-yard, 80-pound mono capacity to the 50 VSW with an 850-yard, 50-pound mono capacity to the lighter tackle 30VSW with a 900-yard, 30-pound mono capacity, the Gold Label International V-Series will deliver the power you need to reel them in. Backed by a 1-year warranty, the V-Series reels are worth their weight in gold, delivering reliability, durability, and performance you can count on for years of trolling.

Dura-Drag:

    Setting a new standard for performance, reliability, and durability, Dura-Drag is designed to endure frequent and heavy use without breaking down, to withstand the high levels of heat generated during big game battles, and to provide smoother start-ups and more consistent drag pressures. Dura-Drag contains a Phenolic bonding agent to prevent breakdown of the material and to provide a barrier to water damage. The Dura Drag is then treated with a special formula that improves drag performance, prevents water damage, and provides the drag with a silky, smooth feel from the initial start-up through the entire drag run. Dura-Drag delivers smoother start-ups and more consistent drag pressures thanks to the lack of an initial drag-pressure surge common in other drag materials. The Dura-Drag performance translates into fewer pulled hooks, broken lines, hesitations, and jerky drags, and eliminates the need for anglers to change their International drag washers after long fights with big game fish.

Quick Shift:

    Penn's Quick Shift is one of the easiest and most angler-friendly two-speed features on the market. Quick Shift engages automatically with a deliberate bump of the shift button for low-speed or a spin of the shift knob for high-speed and can be performed without letting go of the handle.

I own many Penn international reels. They are rugged, dependable and last a life time. There is a lot of talk out there about the "better" big game reel; the fact is these are the best compared to any similar reel in the same price range. People say the drags are smoother on the Shimano, I can tell you there is not enough of a difference to make it worth buying a reel made in Japan with plastic parts. Penn internationals are American made, they will last forever even in the commercial fishing industry, the parts are easy to get (if you ever need them) and if you happen to run one over with your truck on your way to the dock...chances are you can still fish it.

I put it on the rod and 5 hours later I brought in a 92 lb Yellow Fin. Smooth drag and I put the heat to him when I needed to without any problems.Plus it looks good on the boat.

Shipping was super fast and the reel meets all expectations. We've already caught a few large fish on it and I have to say that the drag on this reel is so smooth. It's worth every penny - we'll be ordering another one.
