    Never personally used the GTO series,but they,ve gotten quite a few bad reviews on here.I have used the Penn 320GT2 reels before and they,re a real workhorse.I think for the $20 extra,I,d try and stick with the GT2 series if ya can swing it.

    I agree with both posts I own the 320GT2 and 309, I like the 320GT2 better but thats only because its a little more versatile and casts further, but the 309 is a winch

    Haven't used the later model Penn's but like the old 209-309 Penn's for fishing bait in both fresh and salt water.They can be a bear to cast until one gets used to them.If your thumb is not tough they will burn you bad throwing heavy weights.If you have a big fish hooked,they can't be beat.
