PENN® GT Level Wind Star Drag
MACHINED ALUMINIUM POWER KNOB
With spare EVA knob also included across the range (excluding 2500 size which features an EVA knob only).
8+1 SEALED STAINLESS STEEL BEARING SYSTEM
Additional bearing in the spool which helps to support the spool when placed under heavy drag loads.
HYDROPHOBIC LINE ROLLER BEARING
High grade sealed stainless bearing with a special coating that helps to bead water away from this highly exposed and crucial part of any spin reel for dependable long-term performance.
To eliminate slippage and the need to use monofilament backing before spooling, the Slammer IV features a textured rubber gasket at the base of the spool to tie your braid directly onto.
HT-100™ CARBON FIBRE DRAG WASHERS (2500 ONLY)
The new small but tough 2500 size features HT-100™ carbon fibre drag washers with PENN’s proprietary heat-dispersing grease, the ‘100’ indicating that 100 miles of line can be pulled of the reel with no wear on the washers.
SEALED SLAMMER® DRAG SYSTEM WITH DURA-DRAG™ (3500-10500)
Silky smooth Dura-Drag™ carbon fibre washers eliminate hesitation even under extreme drag settings, and are impregnated with a Phenolic bonding agent to reduce wear and water intrusion.
CNC GEAR TECHNOLOGY
State of the art Computer Numerical Control technology machines gears out of a solid piece of metal, ensuring exact alignment, smooth long-term performance and cranking torque rigidity when trying to get that last wind on a hard fighting fish.
ADDITIONAL SEALS TO IMPROVE IPX6 RATED BODY AND SPOOL DESIGN
Independently verified by the International Ingress Protection Rating, the Slammer’s renowned IPX6 sealing is improved further by an additional seal under the rotor before the labyrinth seal, and a change in the way the drag is sealed to offer a reduced minimum drag for improved low-end smoothness.
FULL METAL BODY, SIDEPLATE & ROTOR (SIZES 3500 – 10500)
Keeps gears protected and in alignment by eliminating any flex in the reel’s frame. The 2500 size features a full metal body and sideplate, but differentiates from the rest of the range with a graphite rotor still capable of withstanding maximum drag loads, but saving weight in this compact size addition to the Slammer family.
The perfect oscillation for an extremely even line lay.
Line capacities on spool are marked at 1/3rd, 2/3rd and full capacity.
Techno-Balanced™ rotor gives smooth retrieves.
Eliminates rotor backplay for instant hook sets.
Braid Ready to handle the strain that braided lines put on a reel.
No backing needed because the rubber gasket keeps superline from slipping.
Tip section of the rod is solid and not hollow to virtually eliminate breakage.
A graphite inner core for sensitivity and an e glass outer layer for durability.
A manufacturer of premium rod components.
The CNC Gear™ is machined from premium metals which provide a durable yet smooth gear train created by the precision of CNC technology.
Our Dura-Drag material contains a special Phenolic bonding agent that prevents premature breakdown of the carbon fibre material while providing a barrier to water.
Full Metal Body and sideplate keep precise gear alignment under heavy loads.
SLS3 construction uses inner and outer spiral wrap layers of carbon fibre to sandwich middle layers of alternating longitudinal carbon and glass. The spiral wraps maintain a round cross section in the blank when under load which helps the blank handle higher loads. The middle layers of unidirectional carbon and glass create the backbone of the rod by utilising the strength of glass combined with the lightweight of the carbon fibre to deliver a strong, balanced, and thin rod blank.
Sealed from heavy seas and spray, protecting key internal parts.
