Penn International Reel VI Series Buyers Guide
Many ask us the question what is the difference between the Penn International VIS Reel and The VISX Reel and which one should I buy? Well to answer that simply without making it too complicated the VIS/VISW Series are designed to be wider and are ideal for anglers that are using monofilament IGFA Lines whereas the Penn International VISX reel are a somewhat narrower in comparison and are designed for the anglers that use higher test class mono where line capacity isn’t as important but more so, The VISX is geared up for the braid angler, and has placed emphasis on those anglers that push huge amounts of drag into the fight. To do this, Penn have included Machine-Cut, Heat-Treated Stainless Steel Main and Pinion Gears, and Drag Cam. The Frame and side plate are forged aircraft grade aluminium, keeping things light will providing incredible strength and rigidity. The bearings are Aircraft-Grade, Sealed, Stainless Steel, working in perfect synchronicity with the hugely powerful gears. The result is smooth, consistent and reliable cranking, especially under load.
