PENN-Clash-Spinning_8000_2016_alt1The Clash spinning reel, voted Best Saltwater Reel at ICAST 2015, uses a computer-controlled CNC gear technology system so that the precision aluminum/brass main gear and brass pinion are machined for exact tolerances to provide the smoothest operation. Additional features include the new Leveline™ slow oscillation system that produces tight, near-perfect line lay for improved casting and reduced occurrences of wind knots. The drag’s wave spring provides the full range of drag capability versus conventional coil springs. A full metal body and sideplate, eight-plus-one sealed ball bearings, Techno-Balanced™ RR30 carbon rotor and sealed HT-100 drag system add to the reel’s durability. Seven models are available with MSRP starting at $179.95.

The lightweight Carnage II rods are designed to be paired with the latest, more compact reels. SLS3 small composite blank construction features inner layers of carbon and glass sandwiched between graphite fiber layers. The results in a lighter, stronger rod for better balance. 29 models of boat, jigging and surf rods are offered, all built for braided lines.  MSRP starts at $179.95.

Every angler needs knives and tools to complete the job. PENN knives are made with German stainless steel and are razor sharp. Black nickel titanium keeps corrosion at bay. The tools are built with 304 and 420 stainless steel wrapped in titanium black nickel. Each knife and tool have passed PENN’s extreme 168-hour saltwater and acid test. Knives are priced from $19.99 to $24.99, MSRP for tools range from $24.99 to $49.99.
