With its legendary construction and quality, the Special Senator® is a perfectly matched combo meeting the demands of serious anglers.
The Senator® has been guiding anglers while bottom fishing and trolling for over 80 years. Standing the test of time thanks to its universal, respected star drag and rugged design, this reel is an offshore workhorse. Since 1936, the Senator® has amassed more International Game Fish Association (IGFA) big game world records than any other reel in the industry.
Power, speed, and superior balance define this combo thanks to the high gear ratio and high speed retrieve of the Special Senator® matched with the Penn Slammer® rod. With soft, oversized grips and a fast tapered, angler-friendly blank, the Slammer rod improves leverage and fish fighting power. Stainless steel frame rings enhance rigidity to prevent flex while the HT-100 drag washers and marine-grade bronze-alloy main gears provide a smooth drag under heavy loads. The renowned Senator gets the job done with its superb mix of brute strength and subtle sensitivity for a great feel and superior backbone.
