The Penn Pursuit III is designed to deliver big fish fighting capabilities at an entry level price point. Most lower priced spinning reels use oiled felt drag washers which simply cannot stand up to the abuse taken from large saltwater fish. Penn has solved this problem by implementing their HT-100 drag material into their opening price point spinning reel. This means that the Pursuit III features the same durable carbon drag found on significantly more expensive reels. This key addition, along with a corrosion resistant graphite body and 5 shielded stainless steel ball bearings, make the Pursuit III the strongest reel in its class.
Penn Pursuit III Features:
HT-100 carbon fiber drag system
