No better reel for the money. That's our guarantee to you! Built like a tank, with a solid, one-piece machined-aluminum frame for absolute strength without added weight!

In the realm of 50 lb. class reels, toughness is the first absolute requirement. Our Captain's Choice 6/0 Class Reel tackles that challenge with a rigid one-piece machined-aluminum frame. Many higher-priced reels attempt to get away with using a plastic frame or multiple parts secured by as many as 10 screws -- we refuse to compromise our product for the sake of a few extra dollars. Rest assured, no other reel in this price range can touch this one. The gears and guts are no-nonsense brass and steel, and the heavy-gauge machined-aluminum spool rides the massive chassis easily on industrial-grade bearings. Rugged chrome-plated brass finishes out a performance package unequaled by other class reels. Put this reel to the test, and we guarantee you won't be disappointed! Weight: 41 oz. Line capacity: 50 lbs./475 yards. Gear ratio: 2.8:1.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Decent for the money We go to destin 4 days every year to do nothing but fish, being I have no other use for a grouper set up I didn't want to have alot of money in it. So I put this reel on a 6' Cpt. Choice rod and spooled it with 80lb mono. Caught afew Mingos and white snapper on it before grouper fishing. Caught a 10ft bull shark in 225ft of water and after a 15min battle get to the boat. The reel was too hot to touch the drag and fighting the shark torqued the handle pretty good. Other than the flimsy reel handle and small knob on it, it did its job. September 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great buy! Nice big reel that handles big fish ! One of my best reel purchases September 11, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by 6/0 reel,,Fair Got this reel, used it one time caught 2 fish and had to return it. The brass gear inside had gotten jacked up, very hard to crank and it would skip. guess it would be ok for other types of fish ,like snapper or something, but a 46 lb and a 60 lb amberjack the reel just didn't like. bass pro offered the penn senator as a replacement being they didn't have another " captains choice in stock and I gladly took it. Bass Pro is the way to go March 19, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by good reel for the price I have used it for shark fishing,reef fishing,and trolling inshore. I have caught cobia ,shark, black sea bass,and large jacks. But a big barracuda smoked the bait clicker while trolling. I will see if the local Bass Pro will repair or replace, Other than the clicker , it's still a great reel for the price. March 15, 2012

Are the gears, spool and frame sturdy enough to hold up to the pressure of constant 37# of pressure. It seems very similar to the penn 6/0 that only rates at 22#.

It is much stronger and flat out better than the old Senators, however, if you need something with that much pressure on a regular basis than take a look at the Penn Torques. They are more expensive but are truly built to reel in sea monsters without tiring the fisherman. If your target fish is under 40 lbs then it isn't going to make much difference. Neither reel is going to break for a long time.
