Have the insides corroded or seized up? My buddy at work has 4 penns, 3 made in the usa(8 years old) and 1 in china(not even a year old). The usa ones looked good in the inside and the one made in china looked bad. Drag washers were melted, metal washers were pitting and were almost impossible to get out of the main gear. We had to order $50 worth of parts. I know shimano is nothing like penn, but are the reels not made in Japan have parts that not worth a damn. I quess that is my question.

That's unfortunate.............Penn = Junk.

Years ago a Penn reel was the best on the market and everyone owned one.

They were great reels............what happened ?

I couldnot agree anymore. I have 450ssg, 550ssg, slammer460 and 2 slammer560. but after I bought a stradic 5000, I never touched Penn again.

Maybe I will only use them for bait fishing someday.redface.gif
