The Penn 209 LC is designed to allow you to fish in both salt and freshwater, with a focus on trolling. The spool is black anodized aluminum for easy casting, while the drag is Penn's exclusive HT-100 Multi-disc star drag system, which gives you extreme smoothness and stopping power. It features composite side plates and a warning clicker, plus a stainless steel Level Wind which evenly lays the line on the reel every time. The handle is counterbalanced with an oversized hand grip to make long retrieves super comfortable. The line counter lets you know exactly where your bait was when it was in the strike zone, and gives you the ability to duplicate your next drift and put it right back where it was.
