Penn Slammer 760
The Penn Slammer has become the spinning reel of choice for saltwater fishings most critical anglers, Professional Guides and Charter Captains. If Professional Guides and Charter Captains fish with the Slammer as their Spinning Reel of choice, so should you. It is, after all, an incredibly performing reel.
Penn Power Drag. A single, large HT100 drag washer, located under the spool, protects the drag from the elements, providing the utmost in smooth stopping power for the Slammers drag system. The proven HT100 drag material lasts long, but when it finally does wear, the reversible drag washer can be flipped over, for double the life.
Taking into account all the requirements of durability and power expected from such a product, Penn Engineers designed a frame from a special high-strength alum-alloy that would provide the housing for the powerful gearing system of the Penn Slammer. Realizing that anglers would be exerting greater and greater drag pressures due to the growing popularity of super-braids, it was decided that the main support shaft for the spool would need to be drastically oversized and triple supported throughout the frame so that alignment and balance would not be compromised under the most intense pressure.
Capitalizing on their breakthrough in spinning reel drag design, Penn Engineers took advantage of the large and under-utilized area beneath the spool, allowing an oversized drag-washer to be utilized. This drag surface allowed for increased drag ranges, smoothness, and drastically increased fish-stopping power. Advanced computer modeling allowed further fine-tuning and balancing, and has resulted in the most durable and long-lasting spinning reel on the market.
