Bought this Penn at sales person recommendation. Was looking at both the 309 and the Bass Pro Snaggin' Special. Sales guy said 309 was built more heavy duty, and that he has experienced some problems with the Snaggin' Special, and no problems with the Penn 209 or 309. I got home and within minutes noticed the levelwind catching on one side, which dissapointed me, but after spoolong it with 40lb mono, mounting it to a boat rod and using 2oz lead I took to yard. It casts well, and after few cast levelwind seems to be working - Maybe needed to be broken in and ran a little - but it is working fine. Is not high end, but functional. Will be using on big river few times year hopefully catching big catfish. Sales guy mentioned it would be great for 70lb + cats. We will see. Is a heavy reel, and on a silid glass Sturdy Stik it is a heavy combo, but for casting and setting should be ok. I'd say is decent reel for the money, but be prepared to have possible 'bugs' to work out.

I have used Penn 309 reels for over 30 years for trolling. My latest Penn purchase brings my total of Penn reels to 10. They are well built, reasonably priced and get the job done. I have caught a lot of fish over the years with these reels and would be reluctant to switch to something else.

I purchased a Penn 309 about twenty years ago and I am still using it. I used for several years on fishing trips to Fla. and for catfish at home. I think that for the price these reels are great. I have mine on a 7' OffShore Angler rod and it does a great job for big cats. Even 30 plus pound cats are no problem with this setup. What more can I say.
