The Penn International 16VS 2-Speed Lever Drag Reel is designed with mid-range predatory fish in mind – Think dorado, small yellowfin and bluefin tuna, wahoo, king mackerel, and wahoo. The Penn International 16VS puts out an ample 28# of drag, and will hold 500 yards of 30# mono or 700 yards of 80# braid. You can fish the VS series with braid, but we’d recommend a mono topshot for the additional stretch. You can either troll or jig with your International 16VS, as its 5.3:1 high gear ratio is fast, but the 2:1 low gear provides endless torque. It’s a dual threat real for sure, and the Penn International VS16 is designed and assembled in Philadelphia. Featuring a full metal body and sideplates, the International VS16 can handle a huge amount of screaming run-induced stress.
