Inshore and offshore anglers who need a powerful, dependable spinning reel should take a close look at Penn’s new Torque Series. Available in three sizes (5, 7 and 9), these reels have you covered for tangling with tough customers, whether they’re stripers, yellowfin tuna or anything in between. Torques are completely sealed against the elements so salt water and sand simply can’t get inside to affect the drag, bearings and gears. The oversize HT-100 Versa-Drag system allows anglers to choose from multiple drag settings to match any fishing situation, and under the rotor, there’s a switch to engage a manual or automatic trip for the bail. The high-capacity spool is braid-ready, meaning it’s been built to withstand the heavy strains braid can put on a reel. It’s available in classic Penn gold or a new black version with gold accents. Starting at $659.99; www.pennreels.com.
