International Baitcasters REEL SPECS
International Baitcaster Series - When a powerful lever drag is overkill for your light tackle challenges, the International Baitcast family of reels fills the void. These reels are designed for some serious fishing, with machined, stainless main and pinion gears.
The narrow spool 955 is engineered for light tackle saltwater fishing.
The international 965 is designed and built expresly for saltwater fishing and to withstand the raw power of saltwater fish. It's ideal for a wide range of inshore game fish such as snook, redfish, bluefish, stripers, salmon, as well for heavy-duty freshwater applications.
The 975 has the power and line capacity to beat the baddest fish from the backcountry to the blue water. This reel is tough enough to handle heavy duty inshore to medium offshore fishing for school tuna, yellowtail, dolphin and more.
The 975CS is a true casting version of the 975. Designed with no level-wind mechanism, the 975CS provides optimum casting distance and control. This reel gives the power to do battle with inshore predators like snook and stripers, or offshore fish like school tuna, dolphin or yellowtail.
The 975LD is the first baitcasting reel to feature Penn's renownoed International pre-set lever drag system. A 104-degree drag quadrant provides full free spool, full strike and full drag positions.
