Spinning reels get a bit of a bad rap in a lot of offshore circles – mainly due to false assumptions about their drag and strength capabilities and real-life concerns about line capacity. Penn’s Torque line of heavy spinners blows away any trepidation about strength, drag levels and line capacity (when using the new braided lines), so there’s no reason not to give them a try offshore. Oh, and the fact that even the most novice angler can make perfect drop backs without fear of a backlash should carry some weight as well!
Torque spinners feature a metal body construction that is fully sealed – water will not enter the case – making it perfect for the surf too. The reel lets you choose between automatic and manual bail trip and features a stainless-steel bail assembly.
