Anyone Own A Penn 115L Reel?

3 posts in this topic

I'm looking at buying either one of these or a 114H.

Likes or dislikes? Anything to look out for?

Thanks for any info.

I have two 115's on Shakespeare stand-up rods. One is spooled with 50# Ande and the other with 100# Spiderwire.

Very loud clicker and solid reel. I am very satisfied with the big Penns. My only complaint is that the 115 is not a levelwind.

It's a beast of a reel, especially combined with a heavy rod. You SHOULD use a fighting belt and a strap with it. I use a padded laptop bag strap and sling it around my lower back.

I highly recommend a 115 for heavy duty fun.

Or you could just use it as a land winch for Reds! hahahaha

I also have three 114's. They don't hold enough line for land-based charkin'.

Thanks for the reply. I believe I'll go with a Penn 950 SSm instead. I appreciate your help.
