The PENN International VI series is designed and manufactured in the USA of domestic and imported components. Precision machined from high-strength, lightweight, aircraft grade aluminum in our Philadelphia machining center. Our experienced crew has been designing and producing durable, high-quality reels in this facility since 1932. The VI consists of a large stainless steel gear train for strength and speed, and a Dura-Drag system which results in a smoother start up and virtually eliminates hesitation, even under extreme drag settings.


Gears: The stainless steel gear train in Penn's International VIS reels and it doesn't get much tougher. It has an exclusive Quick-Shift II 2-speed system, this lets you choose between 2 different gear ratios quickly, and it also has fast retrieve speed or low power speed which can be done with the push of a button.

Washers: Penn's Dura-Drag material contains a special Phenolic bonding agent that prevents premature breakdown of the carbon fiber material while providing a barrier to water. The Dura-Drag gears create a smoother start up and less hesitation, when it is enduring the most extreme extreme drag settings.
