Penn Torque

Any of y'all using the old penn torque 100, 200, or 300? I am thinking about buying one and wanted to hear from other folks who fish the gulf.

    I've got Avet and Okuma's and like them.

    Good Luck,

    The Avets seem to reel stiff when you lock the drag down. Plus I am looking for star drags. I have never owned any okumas. The penn is the only one in its size that has the double dogged anti reverese.

    I need to go play with some okumas. Any particular model?

    I've never noticed that. Very nice reels and made in the US.

    I have the Penn Torque 200 and use it all the time for jigging and Grouper digging. It does indeed have the antireverse dawg and that makes it sturdier. Several of my friends liked mine so much they ran out and bought one too.

    How do you like the 6.3:1 for grouper digging? My only hold back is the if that high of a speed will have a negative affect.

    Sounds like you need a 2 speed. Love my Avet!

    thank Bonephish for turning me on to them.

    bottom line is the pros out weigh the cons. Wish I had nothing but a boat load of them. :)
