REEL INFO: 
International Tournament Single Speed - No other reel has done more to shape the world of big game angling than the Penn single-speed International.

HISTORY: 


The first International Tournament series was introduced in 1967, the Penn 80 being one of them. In the late 80's this model was replaced by the much less weighing 80T. However the Penn 80W wasn't added to the series until the 1970's. This spool had a greater line capacity than it's brother, the Penn 80. In the late 80's the 80W was replaced by the 80TW, which weighed much less than the massive, 114 oz. weighing 80W.
