The Penn Senator 114L2 Star Drag Reel practically wrote the book on super-sized bottom fishing. Used here in the Northeast for decades, the 114L2 has probably caught more market sized cod than all other reels combined. That may be a slight exaggeration, but to give you more perspective, it may not be. Thanks to a graphite body and sideplates, the 114L2 is lighter than previous models, and the steel rings that encase the graphite only add to the toughness and inflexibility of the reel. Putting out a staunch 21# drag, the 114L2 has the ability to target large inshore and near shore species like cod, pollock, haddock, tilefish, grouper, snapper, and halibut. In the capacity department, the 114L2 boasts an impressive 450 yards of 50# monofilament, or a staggering 1,075 yards of 80# braid. We recommend monofilament, as even though the machined and anodized spool is braid ready, the reel performs better with mono.
