The PENN Defiance was engineered to be an extremely versatile all- around reel at an affordable price. It features a lightweight graphite frame and sideplates with stainless steel frame rings for improved rigidity to prevent frame-flex.  HT-100 drag washers provide smooth drag under heavy loads. Line Capacity Rings eliminate the question of how much line you have left when fighting a fish.
PENN® Defiance® Level Wind and Star Drag is rated 2.8333 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Anti-Reverse (Dog) issues I purchased this reel last year but didn't use it for a while. However, the first time I did, the anti-reverse broke. The handle spins backwards if you are not holding the handle. Makes for a pretty useless reel. I've done some research and I believe they have addressed this issue with a v2.0 of this reel. Basically the dog was a poor design. Unfortunately, I must have purchased older stock and it's past the return/warranty period so I'm stuck with it. I'll look elsewhere when buying new reels. It's hard to say if this was a quality issue or not but I think it was just a bad design.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy!!! I bought this reel as a back up reel when I went offshore. Well when I decided to u use it the reel had locked up and then it finally loosened up so I put some bait on it and dropped it down. Well I had probably a 5 lb mutton snapper and it would reel backwards like the anti reverse stopped working. I Ended up replacing it with a penn senator

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Some Problems I have had two of these come back already. One with a defective worm gear and one with a broken dog. They had been used only a few times. So I hope this is not an indication

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Breaks right away I bought this reel and landed two fish with it. The second fish though was to much for the reel, a 40lbs flathead catfish and the anitreverse mechanisim broke in.
