Penn Torque Heavy Duty Spinning Reels – T&G Show [part 4]

Posted by Editor On November - 22 - 2009

One of the highlights of the T&G show was the Pure Fishing stand featuring such giants as ABU Garcia, Berkley, Mitchell, Shakespeare, JRC and Penn - the list goes on - all featured a number of great products for 2010. Of particular interest to me, was that Penn had added two new ranges of top-end fixed-spool spinning reels, both suited to sea or any heavy duty angling. Announcing the imminent arrival of the new Conquer and the range we'll look at now, the impressive Torque!

Top of the tree is the new Penn Torque Spinning Reel - a reel squarely aimed at the Shimano Stellas and Daiwa  Saltigas of this world. I was lucky enough to handle the Torque at the show and it is exciting in that it's very different to both those aforementioned reels. The Torque has an almost industrial feel, Read the rest of this entry »

Kingpin Reels – T&G Show [part 3]

Posted by Editor On November - 1 - 2009

The Kingpin stand was definitely one of the most attractive at the show. The quality of the merchandise (and the anodising) were second to none.

Centre stage was the limited edition Sterling available in Blood Red/Pearl Black (pictured) or Pearl Black/Blood Red, both of which are equally seductive in appearance. These 4 1/2 inch reels were created to commemorate the company's 25th anniversary and boy have they made something to be proud of. The new reel features the machined spoke design found on their Sovereign range of centrepins. We think it looks fantastic! Read the rest of this entry »
