Penn calls its new International Torque series reels, which debut an innovative side-plate design, the "ultimate braid-capable, star-drag reel for the blue-water angler." Penn integrated the right-side bridge-plate components into one rigid assembly, enabling the reels to achieve super-high drag capabilities with fewer parts. During field testing, one of the reels held 48.99 pounds of drag with no binding or sluggishness. Torques come in 100, 200 and 300 models. The smallest reel holds 550 yards of 30-pound braid; the middle reel holds 450 yards of 50-pound braid; and the 300 holds 360 yards of 80-pound braid. All offer a single-gear ratio of 6.3:1. Retail prices range from $379.99 to $399.99. Call 215-229-9415 or visit www.pennreels.com.
