Ready to set a big game fishing record? This reel is for you!

Since 1932, Penn Reels have cranked in over 1,400 IGFA world records. The reason for this outstanding success is that every Penn Reel embodies a tradition of quality and innovation that has made Penn Reels the go-to choice of anglers around the world.

If you are a blue water angler looking to land some of the largest fish in the seven seas—yes, we're talking big, like black marlin, monster tuna or maybe a scale-busting mako shark, the Penn International 130 VIS won't let you down. Capable of holding nearly three miles of 100 pound test braid and with a maximum 100 pounds of drag, this reel gives anglers the ability to fight large fish out past the horizon and back. Construction features a rugged frame machined from high-strength, lightweight, aircraft grade aluminum, brawny stainless steel gear train and smooth Dura-Drag system. Provided you're up to the task, you can count on this reel to bring the big brutes to heel and maybe even set a record yourself.
