PENN Continues Dominance at ICAST

PENN Slammer III a crowd favorite

The Slammer III is the most recent PENN reel to win the title of Best Saltwater Reel at the annual ICAST show held in Orlando, Fla. PENN spinning reels have claimed four of the past five years honors for Best Saltwater Reel. Their dominance is attributed to the brands continued dedication to its loyal following and never ending drive to provide products that can withstand the toughest conditions.

“PENN listens to what our anglers demand from our reels,” said Mike Rice, PENN Brand Director. “The entire team goes to great lengths to find the best materials and innovative designs to keep our anglers on the water and in the fight.”

Recent winners have included the PENN Spinfisher V (2012), PENN Battle II (2014), PENN Clash (2015) and now the PENN Slammer III (2016). These reels are a reflection of the hard work the PENN team has done in creating a reel for every angler.

“Each reel that has won the Best Saltwater Reel award for PENN is a direct result of the entire team’s dedication to provide saltwater anglers with the absolute best,” added Rice. “The Slammer III continues the PENN tradition. If anglers are excited to see the PENN Slammer III in the lineup, just wait till they see what is coming down the pipe.”

The Slammer III features the new IPX6 Sealed System to keep water out of the gear box and drag system in heavy spray and sea conditions.

The Slammer III incorporates the PENN proprietary sealed Dura-Drag system along with the computer-controlled CNC gear technology. Eight models of the Slammer III are offered to cover a wide range of inshore, near shore and offshore angling opportunities from the pier, beach or boat.
