Well I got my first penn reel tonight at an auction . It is in great shape and I got it for 42.50 wasnt sure if it was to much to pay or not . I am an abu garcia fan and this thing is going to look funny next to all my abu's but if it performs as good as I here they do then I will be happy . If I dont like it I will sell the darn thing . Might try it out tomorrow . Anyone got a good idea for the kind of line I should use ? I have some 30 pound big game and some 65 pound ugly braid on hand .
