One of the key points raised by charter skippers and anglers while Penn's engineers were researching this range was the lever drag system. A ratcheted lever was introduced to eliminate the problem of 'drag-creep' caused by hours of trolling and diesel engine vibration. This means that if a huge fish is hooked, you can be sure that the amount of drag being used is the amount that you have preset
The VSX range is one of Penn's most impressive engineering achievements.
This range has been designed to cope with the extreme drag settings required when fishing with braided main lines. Unlike other reels, the smooth drag curve created with this range gives you total confidence.
The main problem with using braided main lines is the speed at which a hooked fish can take line from the spool. If the drag can't cope then the result is often a pulled hook, or even a snapped line! Penn's engineers realised the potential problem and quickly set to work on a space-age drag system that eliminates the threat of lost fish.
Extreme engineering coupled with the most modern materials and manufacturing processes has created one of the finest, most reliable reels ever produced.
