Rated 5 out of 5 Very good all rounder
I have been using these reels for years. With good maintenance, & proper cleaning after use. These reels will last you a life time.
We have had fish that have gone for hours & days, hooked up. This reel stood up to the test ever time.
A good tradesman never blames his tools.
This is a tool, I would recommend, always.

Rated 5 out of 5 Best reel for big game fisherman
These reels are by far the best performing and longest lasting reels on the market today. I have four 30 vsw's two 50 vsw's and one 80 vsw and i have caught everything from Bull sharks to blue marlin these reels outperform the competition in every way. I use to have a lot of shimano tritons but i was tired of getting them repaired so i upgraded. So if your looking for a reel that could handle a blue marlin or dolphin or maybe a reel that you could rip a grouper out of a wreck these reels are your best bet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by saltdog great reel
The international series reels are built very heavy and will handle any big game fish, I have a couple that are 10 years old and look and work like new. They are heavy and sometimes not ideal for medium size fish which you are holding your reel for extended periods of time, the gold finish requires careful handling as it scratches easily. But as far as a work horse that holds a lot of line with a great drag mechanism there is none better.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CaptDoug What's the big deal????
I have used these reels on several occasions and I don't see the big deal. Penn makes great reels, but for my dollar, the Senators are much better.
