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 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
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!
