Penn Gold Label Series International VSX Extreme Two Speed Reel

Constructed and engineered to achieve the extreme drag ranges expected by anglers fishing with super-braids, the Penn International VSX two-speed models deliver an appropriate and smooth drag curve throughout the entire range of the drag-lever--allowing anglers to catch the fish--without popped lines and pulled hooks. The International VSX two-speed models provide an 'extreme' performance in that it far surpasses reasonable expectations thanks to top-notch and performance tested engineering.

Equipped with Dura-Drag, one of the most reliable and durable drags available, snapped lines, jerky drags, pulled hooks, and hesitations become distant memory when using a VSX two-speed reel. The VSX 2-speed reel features an easy to use Quick Shift system that engages automatically with a deliberate bump of the shift button for low-speed or a spin of the shift knob for high-speed and can be performed without letting go of the handle. A favorite among skippers, the Push-to-Turn preset drag system prevents 'unknowing anglers' from accidentally adjusting the drag when backs are turned. Additional features that distinguish the VSX 2-speed from the competition include the super-strong durability of its full metal body--one-piece machined aluminum frame and side-plates--and its Braid Ready design that can handle the additional strain that braided lines can put on a reel.

Ranging from the brawny 130VSX Model with a 1000-yard, 130-pound mono capacity to the 50 VSX with an 550-yard, 50-pound mono capacity to the lighter tackle 30VSX with a 400-yard, 30-pound mono capacity and the 16VSX with a 100-yard, 16-pound mono capacity, the International VSX Reels will deliver the smooth reliable force you need to reel them in. Backed by a 1-year warranty, the VSX Reels are worth their weight in gold, delivering reliability, durability, and performance you can count on for years of use.

    Setting a new standard for performance, reliability, and durability, Dura-Drag is designed to endure frequent and heavy use without breaking down, to withstand the high levels of heat generated during big game battles, and to provide smoother start-ups and more consistent drag pressures. Dura-Drag contains a Phenolic bonding agent to prevent breakdown of the material and to provide a barrier to water damage. The Dura Drag is then treated with a special formula that improves drag performance, prevents water damage, and provides the drag with a silky, smooth feel from the initial start-up through the entire drag run. Dura-Drag delivers smoother start-ups and more consistent drag pressures thanks to the lack of an initial drag-pressure surge common in other drag materials. The Dura-Drag performance translates into fewer pulled hooks, broken lines, hesitations, and jerky drags, and eliminates the need for anglers to change their International drag washers after long fights with big game fish.

Quick Shift:

    Penn's Quick Shift is one of the easiest and most angler-friendly two-speed features on the market. Quick Shift engages automatically with a deliberate bump of the shift button for low-speed or a spin of the shift knob for high-speed and can be performed without letting go of the handle.
