VIDEO TECH REVIEW: Penn Clash

VIDEO TECH REVIEW: Penn Clash

RRP from $329

THE Penn Clash is a lightweight spinning reel designed for modern saltwater sportfishing. With the new CNC gear technology system, the precision aluminium/brass main gear and brass pinion are machined to exact tolerances to provide smooth operation.

Built to withstand years of use, the full-metal aluminium body and side-plate, and 8+1 sealed ball bearings add to the reel’s durability. The Techno-Balanced RR30 carbon rotor on the smaller reels, aluminium on the bigger sizes, with the heavy-duty aluminium bail is built for a long life.

The new Leveline slow oscillation system is rugged and produces tight, near-perfect line lay for improved casting and reduced occurrences of ‘wind knots’, while Penn’s sealed HT-100 drag system smoothly manages the fight from hook set to landing. The drag’s wave spring provides more drag capability when compared to conventional coil springs, delivering a consistent drag curve with every turn from a light setting right up to max drag. Up to 18kg on the 8000 size!
