PENN Defiance Conventional Combos

These new combinations pair the Defiance reel with one piece, tubular glass rods with graphite seats, chrome-plated stainless steel guides and solid tips. Built for the budget-conscious angler who won’t settle for anything less than the best, the reels feature corrosion-proof, lightweight graphite frame and side plates, fully encircled by stainless steel rings, to prevent frame flex and distortion. A marine-grade bronze main gear and hardened stainless steel pinion gear smoothly transmit power to the anodized aluminum spool. Multi-disc HT-100 carbon-fiber drag washers provides consistent drag under the heaviest loads while three easy-to-see line capacity rings help you keep track of your remaining line.
  • 4.3:1 or 6.0:1 gear ratio reels; 6', 6 1/2' or 7' length one-piece rods
