Product Reviews

PENN® International® VISX is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly strong reel! Usually, I fish 30VISX and 50VISX on long range tuna trips out of San Diego. I always take a 16VISX loaded with 80 lb. braid "just in case" we need "stealth" tackle. January, 2019 on the Excel, was just such a trip. The bite was really touchy but there were big yellowfin around. The Captain said that we could drop down to 80 lb. gear if we wanted, to try to get a bite. Out came my 16VISX with 80, drifting a sardine back. BIG swirl and line was peeling off the reel. The fish stopped just before the line was all gone and the fight began. Several times around the boat and two hours later a 277 lb. yellowfin was on the deck. The 16VISX was ready for more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't be beat Built to perfection. Love the new adjustable strike stop, incredibly smooth and super comfortable in hand. Bought this for my Father's Christmas present... May have to keep it for myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply what we need more drag in a smaller package I now have 2 x 30w. And 2 x 20 wides. They shift well the gearing is good for both quick retrieving whin needed on marlin and if you want to say hi to that big Jew fish that has been eating all your bait or even drag up a shark or to they don’t back down. I truly expected to wreck the drag in one of my 30 w. I fish the Florida Keys and the Bahamas. This last season I hauled in more fish than you can count. Still every reel is still in grate shape and I am ordering more right now that’s y I’m on here. I don’t do a lot of reviews but in this case I’ll make an exception. Flat out grate I’ve wrecked a lot of good reels in my days and know far to well how rough the way I fish is on them. For me to not brake one is amazing. Take your favorite rod hook a 300 + new fish hammer to Yamaha 300 burn the drag and drag the sucker away from his structure thin bring him up for a photo day after day fish after fish if it holds up you will right a review to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I purchased a VISX20 and couldn’t be happier with it. I’ve fished Penn reals my whole life and this one didn’t disappoint. Landed a 275 Bluefin, a 202 bluefin and can’t wait to take it long range for some big big yellowfin. I also purchased a 50 for fishing them in the dark praying to hook and land a 300lb bluefin. Wish me luck and thank you Penn designers for such a great reel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Got what I wanted Last year I used a very similar reel that I had borrowed. The amount and smoothness of drag that can be produced from this reel is amazing. I can't wait to try it out on my own reel!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great r od for the money. First 30 lb Mahi. I have Penns for many years. They are timeless American Reels. Made in Philadelphia. Any other real in this class can't even compare.
