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® Star Drag Reel is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dont Let the Price Deter You I've used the defiance for two summers on fresh and saltwater in heavy use. With more than 170 hours on backwater piers in Beaufort or the long crowded piers at Myrtle Beach even to the catfish filled waters of inland lakes, the defiance has shown exceptional preformance with no major problems to mention

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Happy! Had the Penn combo for a while and decided to try it out on saltwater. Hooked a 25" gafftopsail catsfish that put up a decent fight and was happy with it, that was the first and only fish caught on this reel. It broke simply reeling it in without a fish on it after. It now reels both directions. I have a fairly flimsy pflueger spinner reel combo that has brought in bigger fish without giving me a problem! Since it was purchased over a year ago it's not under warranty and breaks down on its virgin voyage. Not impressed!
