Penn Pursuit II Spinning Reels are built for durability like all Penn reels. The body is made of lightweight, yet tough and corrosion-resistant graphite. Durable metal sideplates and a machined and anodized braid ready aluminum spool provide the strength to withstand the strain that braided lines put on a reel. Heavy-duty bail wire stays strong after getting knocked around on the jetties all night and Line Capacity Rings let the angler know at a glance when the spool is full, at 2/3rds capacity and 1/3rd capacity. Four shielded stainless steel bearings plus Instant Anti Reverse provide smooth cranking performance. The handle with new and improved knobs, can be configured for right or left hand retrieve.
