Rated 1 out of 5 by BigShark Can't handle a 16 pound Barracuda!!!
I was out on my first trip with this reel and hooked a 16 pound barracuda. After pulling it half way in, the reel made a weird sound and each time the barracuda made a run, the handle coiled in reverse, as if it were not locked in. I'm sending it back to Penn to see if the warranty covers.
Good thing it wasn't the 60 pound wahoo I was looking to catch! I would have had a hard time pulling it in by hand.

My son caught a stingray with the 40 lw ( fist fish caught with it). and there was a loud "POP" . The drag was set and the reel wouldnt stop reeling in reverse, maybe we just got a bad one , caught many stingrays on my 10+ year old 320gti and never have had a problem , think we will look for a different model Penn, than the defiance

Great for a beginner like myself. Realized the difference in casting compared to a non level-wind. Still a nice reel!
