Penn 525 Mag

Penn 525 Mag


Also available in the mag extra and super mag version.

The Penn 525 Mag changed the face of the multiplier reel on the beach when it was launched. There was something about it that caught the anglers attention, and held it.

A powerful 6 to 1 retrieve, huge main and pinion gears, drags that really worked and the grunt to wind in smoothly, even with a fish kicking and screaming on the other end. Both pinion gear and spindle are supported by bearings so when the pressure is on the drive train remains in perfect alignment. Plus of course the extra capacity. All in all just about what everybody was waiting for.

    I have several of these reels ranging from the early 525 gs mag right up to the recent release the 525 supermag. They are excellent reels and certainly cast and retrieve well. You never have to worry about getting your fish out of the water as the 525 has enough cranking power to pull big fish through kelp

    On the down side the are a little expensive, the line capacity is quite low and there does appear to be a design flaw in the cage. I have several and the majority have cracked around the small screw that attaches the frame to the sideplate. Still a great reel and it seems to operate well depsite the crack.
