I bought a Penn 209 Levelwind and no matter what I seem to do it always backlashes to some degree. I'm usually casting at least 8 oz. Anyone have anything to offer?
Only the new ones. Try finding a vintage Penn 209. eBay has some quality vendors who clean, repair and rebuild the USA made gems. I have several. Only the newer reels are junk.three words to the secret to casting a Penn.
PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE
when you learn to cast a Penn, you will be good even if you get stuck with one of those foreign reels! :big_smile:
of course the new Penns are foreign junk too!:embarassed:
