Spinning A New Revolution

Redesigning the entire high-end spinning lineup was more than a challenge. Rather than just adding ball bearings and changing appearance, the ultimate goal was to introduce groundbreaking innovations that would change the way spinning reels functioned. The end result, developed over a three-year period, was a myriad of new features designed to enhance your overall fishing experience.

First, a complete analysis of fishing with spinning tackle was undertaken. Interviews of guides, dealers and everyday fishermen were conducted, as well as hour upon hour of field testing to determine what areas of current spinning reel designs needed the most improvement. The result of these studies gave 3 critical targets:
  • Gear Durability

  • Casting Performance
  • Line Management

These critical targets evolved using the SR-Concept. The SR-Concept combines the new concept of Reliance with all the aspects of the original S-Concept: Smooth, Silent and Strong.

From these critical targets evolved several new features that will drastically enhance the fishing experience for anyone who uses these new spinning reels. On any of the new Stella FD, Sustain FE, Stradic MgFB, Stradic FI and Saros F reels you will find some, or all of the following new features:

Van Staal Spinning Reel - VS SERIES

You won't find weak die-cast aluminum or plastic in these reels. Van Staal premium spinning reels are expertly crafted from high-grade titanium and steel, the same materials used to build today's advanced aircraft. And this means unyielding strength and consistent peak performance each and every time you tackle the mighty ocean.

The patented maintenance-free drag system features stainless steel ball bearings and an impenetrable gear case. The reel is sealed and water-tight to keep salt, sand and problems out, letting you fight the biggest fish in the harshest elements with no worries. Translation: "the one that got away" will be some other guy's story.

Experienced anglers know the challenge isn't hooking big fish, it's landing them. Enter the hardened stainless steel Main Gear, oversized so it will never slip or strip under pressure, providing you more fish-fighting torque per crank of the handle.

Penn Big Game Reel - International® Torque™

After a long day of fishing off the Florida Coast testing products, a Penn Engineer and Penn’s CEO were engaged in conversation. For years, reel companies mimicked Otto Henze’s original patent of using a bridgeplate to mount the gear stud and main gear. At the time this was innovation and creativity at its finest. However, with the great advances in materials and machining capabilities, the question was posed, why were companies using decade old technology when a better, stronger, and more reliable design could be used? A new, revolutionary concept was quickly sketched on the back of a napkin and a new Patent was born. From this innovative and revolutionary patent, Penn is proud to introduce a truly unique reel design, an Integrated Side Plate. This integrated Side Plate (ISP) serves as the basis for a new series of reels which is introduced over the next few pages. But before its introduction, a bit more discussion of the Integrated Side Plate design is warranted.
  • Lightweight and Strong Aluminum Alloy; Forged & machined Frame, Spool, and Side plates
  • Infinite anti-reverse Roller Bearing PLUS Double Dog system Backup
  • Precision Machined Stainless Steel Main Gear (6.3:1 Gear Ratio)
  • Heat-treated Stainless Steel Pinion Gear for strength
  • Versa-drag, Multiple Drag-stack Arrangement
  • Disengaging Pinion for superior Free Spool
  • Oversized Soft-Grip Power Handle
  • Four Stainless Steel Ball Bearings
  • Stainless Steel Reel Stand
  • One-Piece, Open-Top Frame

Abu Garcia® Ambassadeur® EXT

Proven Swedish design in one of the finest baitcast reels ever built. The EXT features a 1-piece extruded aluminum frame, stainless steel ball bearings and a Carbon Matrix Drag system for extremely smooth casts and flawless retrieves - no matter how long or how hard you fish.

Abu Garcia® REVO™

Abu Garcia® is starting a revolution with the new REVO™ series of low-profile baitcast reels, the fastest low-profile reel Abu Garcia has ever designed. The tough REVO is packed with innovative features, including a Duragear™ oversized brass main gear for maximum cranking power and the innovative Carbon Matrix™ Drag System for incredible smoothness across all drag settings. The reel also is designed with aluminum components for light-weight performance and lasting durability.
The Linear Magnetic Brake™ system found on the SX and STX models allow anglers a wide range of adjustments to fine tune the reel for any application. In addition, the STX model features an Everslik™ coated pinion shaft and pawl, which dramatically reduces friction for enhanced casting while improving the durability of these components. The STX also features the innovative Infini Spool II™ system, which is separated from the drive train, minimizes friction for optimal performance – even with the lightest tackle. Built tough with Abu Garcia’s traditional Swedish engineering, the REVO is ideal for nearly all freshwater applications, from casting crankbaits or spinnerbaits to pitching and flipping softbaits.
