Toy or Tank?

3 posts in this topic

I was maintaining my Penn spinning reels (4400's) on Saturday and I couldn't believe how well made they are. The things are built to last. The construction is fabulous. They don't need much maintenance. I've had them both over 10 years.

I've had other brands of reel that were built like toys by comparison.

Do you have any particularly good and durable equipment?

I've got a few vintage Penn 209's, absolutely bulletproof. also, I use on occasion a Lowrance Green Box - with the correct technique it can be almost as effective in depth sounding and locating schools of fish as the new units.
