The Penn International 70VS 2-Speed Lever Drag Reel is something of a niche reel – designed to have a small profile for big game standup fishing, but with a massive monofilament capacity (650 of 80# or 525 of 100#). Putting out 45# of drag, you don’t have to worry about a surprise boatside run of a giant pelagic dislocating your shoulders, but it easily has enough drag to stop even giant tuna, billfish, and shark. The Penn International 70VS is made in Philadelphia, and is used almost exclusively for standup fishing, as its narrow profile is easier to work with when hooked in. Featuring a Push-to-turn drag pre-set knob to prevent accidental changes to your preset as well as a Quick-Shift 2 speed lever, the Penn International 70VS is truly a standup fishing legend.
