    I remember that JPB used to rave about the one he had. I've never had the opportunity to try one myself. Would like to someday.

    You might check through the past posts on here. I've read several of them that weren't good at all! They seem to be cheap copies from what I've seen of them. Penn doesn't even list them on thier website. I did read somewhere that they are not made by penn, just manufactured by someone else, then they put their name on them. Just like alot of the new cars today.:confused2:

    If its the one that has a thumb bar release,the one I had was pure junk.It could have been a bad one,not sure.Couple small flatties and it messed up.Ended up giving it away,guy fixed it,tore up again real soon so he threw it away.I hope it was an isolated case and its the same one you're talking about.
