While the Penn International is the most recognizable reel on the big game tournament circuit, the Penn GTi Family of reels is perhaps the most recognizable reel in the inshore market. Penn GTi Level Wind Reels cover everything from light-duty inshore bottom fishing to two heavy-duty models, and are capable of handling barn-door sized halibut.
Penn GTi Family of reels is the standard reel of choice on charter and private boats throughout the country. Penn competitors have tried desperately to mimic the look of these reels. Unfortunately for them, the reliability and durability of Penn’s GTi reels is unmatched. When shopping for your GTi reel, don’t be fooled by the “wannabees.” Penn GTi Family of level wind reels are still the preferred reel of choice by any charter boat worth its salt, and it should be yours as well.
