Durability , Smoothness, and Precision is what CNCGear™ Technology
delivers. By using state of the art software and CNC machinery the drive, pinion, and
oscillation gears are cut to exact tolerances using premium metals.
CNC machinery cuts gears directly out of a solid piece of metal, giving it more precision and resilience than other manufacturing processes that utilize molds to shape gears. This provides precision and therefore exact alignment, which means smooth performance. Smooth performance directly correlates to durability and allows you to stay on the water longer and catch more fish.
HT-100 carbon fiber drag washers provide smooth drag under heavy loads.
All HT-100 washers are greased with our proprietary PENN® grease for longevity.
‘HT’ stands for High Tech, with the ‘100’ indicating that 100 miles of line can be pulled off of the reel with no wear on the drag washers.
On most spinning reels the line roller bearing is a crucial point that can become weak due to saltwater exposure. The Clash II features a specialized line roller bearing with hydrophobic properties which prevents saltwater from penetrating the bearing and causing harm or deterioration.
This proprietary system includes seals around the rotor and the pinion gear that protect the pinion assembly, including the clutch. This is the most critical area on a reel to protect.
