Am wondering how the reel is holding up for users? Are the seals doing their job?

Do you have any probs getting the ideal, often quite soft, tension on the secondary drag? I know you have four settings and can also unscrew the rear cap and readjust the preset tension, but I'm wondering if you can get it very light when towing a small livebait or when wanting a very light drag that the small livie can still pull if it gets spooked?

Anything you don't like about the reel?


All my gear is Shimano but they don't have a sealed baitrunner and this Penn real has piqued my interest.

Very light baitrunner settings on them

Thanks Muppet. How long have you had yours? Have you opened it up yet and any salt water ingress?
