PENN® Expands its Spinning Product Line Up, Providing Quality and Value to Anglers

COLUMBIA, S.C. (August 8, 2019) – Iconic fishing and tackle brand, PENN® will debut eight new spinning products for 2019, making saltwater fishing more accessible than ever. The PENN spinning expansion ensures that anglers of all levels can count on quality PENN rods and reels.

At any price point, PENN provides best-in-class durability and a superior fishing experience. Several PENN favorites receive thoughtful upgrades for 2019, including Machined EVA handle knobs, and Winn® grips for added comfort and color.

“We are excited to offer anglers wider offerings of PENN spinning products at a wider price point,” said Mike Rice, director of brand development at PENN. “The new PENN offerings make saltwater fishing more accessible to anglers of all skill levels. We’re adding an entry level series, as well as filling gaps in the lineup, while making sure anglers of all levels enjoy the durability and quality of PENN products.”

The new Wrath series offers reels and combos at an entry level price point, so anglers can experience the durability PENN has to offer. The Wrath reels feature a graphite body and rotor, 2+1 stainless steel bearing system and an oiled felt drag system. The Wrath combos are all two-piece designs for easy travel, have graphite composite blanks and reel seats, as well as stainless steel guides. The combos come in six-foot six-inch, seven foot, eight foot, nine foot and 10-foot options. The Wrath reels range in retail from $29.99 to $49.99, and combos will range in retail from $49.99 to $69.99. The Wrath reels and combos will be available at retail in July 2019.

The Passion and Pursuit III LE expansions are new for 2019 and provide anglers with additional actions in the Passion and Pursuit families. The Passion will offer three new models and the Pursuit LE offers two new models. Both the Passion and Pursuit will offer a seven-foot two-piece combo for inshore, boat or pier applications and an eight-foot two-piece combo designed for all around surf, pier and bank applications. The Passion will also offer a six-foot six-inch two-piece combo designed for lightweight pond hopping. The Passion and Pursuit III LE new models will retail for $89.99 to $159.99 and be available in July 2019.

The newly updated Fierce III reels and combos and the Fierce III LE combos come with a number of upgrades while still providing a great value to anglers.

The Prevail II inshore and surf rods are a top selling rod series for PENN, and 2019 updates for the series include PENN Dura-Guides and Winn® camo grips with a rubber shrink tube handle for a firm grip.

Everything is like that now. Media, Telco, Manufacturing, even TV stations.

I have a couple of Penn battle 2's and a couple of Shimano Sedonas. The shimano's have a smoother retrieve the penns are crisper when closing the bail. Drags seem equal, bnoth will do until I pick up a Stradic :D
