High-tech reels use aerospace technology
Penn GLD (Graph-Lite Lever Drag) series reels offer tough construction. From their lightweight, high-strength, corrosion-resistant matte graphite frame and side plates with satin-finished brushed metal components, machined stainless steel gears, four aircraft-grade shielded stainless ball bearings and stainless reel stand to their machined black anodized aluminum spool the same performance as in Penn's Formula Series can be found in these Graph-Lite reels. Drag: HT100 has been Penn's drag material of choice.
- Designed originally as the brake material for supersonic aircraft, Penn''s HT100 provides smooth, consistent and dependable drag performance.
