Thanx guys

Thats just about half the tackle outside on the rack .. rest is in a cupboard in the next room

Yes LF im an out n out Penn fanatic ... Love the Spinfisher SS series specially the 6500 / 7500 / and 8500 and the Penn GT series in the level wind

Also a great fan of one series called the Daiwa Black Gold /// BG 60 and BG 90 are my all time favourites

The Penn series i have now for over 15 years and they still work and perform like the day i got them

if you want to get yourself a good reel for Surf I would advise the Penn 8500SS or the Daiwa BG 60 or BG 90 ( a bit heavy but bukit like a frigging tank

And Gav .... im better than Bob ... hes still not got all his pictures posted from his last trip

Fred,

I too like Penn, but they had started loosing the quality and reliability in thier products. I am an Abu fan and have only a couple of Non-Level wind conventional reels.

Try to get your Penn reels from the US ... they make them much better there

Some nice reels like 704 Z, 706 Z, X500ss series, X50ss series Slammer, Live Liner and the some conventional reels like Squidders are all stopped by Penn. Now Abu has started following Penn. I fish only conventionals form the surf and e-bay looks like a good option. Picked an Abu 7500 CT Big Game (NIB form e-bay) recently and I like it very much.

Good advice from Fred about the US, however bear in mind that ALL Penn spinning reels from now on will be made in China, whatever you find on the shelf now (Made in US) are the last ones left.

The only problem I have found with the Penn Spinn fisher and I own all of them is that some of the smaller parts have a tendency to come loose, the handle cap falls off, the Drag Knob (Hard Plastic ones) tends to crack, the silent antireverse pin under the reel behind the spool comes off loose and hangs. Having said that, Penn offers the best after sales service.

I have moved back to Daiwa (Japanese stuff), have some of the BG's and the old GS sceries and a load of the newer ones. Never had a problem with Daiwa. Also have some of the Fin-Nor but I only like the Ahab Series, the millionaire was a huge disappointment.

And Gav, about Fred being better than me, you have got to take his word for it now and he has got supporting pictures :lol:

Fred, it that all you got mate? Let's see some more..

Actually, I am not even sure of that.

It has Made in China on the box and Made By Penn Reels in U.S.A. on the left side plate.

Or is it just the box that was made in China?

I was thinking till today that Penn reels were available only in the USA market. By the way, where did you get that reel? Chances are that the guy who sold the reel might not have had the original box for the USA made reel but found a new box, which was for a Chinese made reel and he might have used it. After all, reels with box and papers cost more than reels without box/papers.

Try giving them a call. And by the way, e-bay is the only option to find some good but discontinued stuff.

If it says "Made in China" on the box with a "twisted","Made By Penn Reels in the USA" then chances are the Reel is also made in China.

THe only thing is that they will have better Quality Control than the other Chinese reels.

I have noticed that Reels made in Thailand and Korea are a lot better than the ones made in China. However I am sticking to the ones Made in Japan, sure they cost a little more, but I guess they are worth it.

And that is my biggest problem, I'd rather be a man of few words than lynched by my mates.

I will post a few more pictures in due course, just that I have to pick and choose which ones to put on.

Hi Rustam,

It probably is just that part :twisted:

All Spinning Reels are being made in China, the O/H, I am not sure.

However I was talking to a Penn dealer, who is also a very good friend, expects even the Penn International Game reels production will move to China.

That will be a sad indeed! :cry:

Rusty ,,,Dont get taken in by Bobbys pussycats .. Penns are made strong so even if it was made in China ( My guess is No it was a US made reel from the picture ) they would be reliable
