One great and important factor that will considerably boost your confidence as you use this product is the fact that all the parts have been tested for durability and quality. The testing has then been transferred to the final product, which has also been proven to produce quality performance results with long lasting durability being guaranteed.

​The Product

All its parts feature some of the best materials that can be used in the construction of a baitcasting reel. These include the pinion gear that features a stainless steel material. The stainless steel has undergone precision machining. This is then used to construct a durable pinion gear that produces precise catching accuracy.

The hardened aluminum spool construction plays an integral role in reducing the weight of this reel. The aluminum had been machined and anodized thereby increasing the durability performance of the product even further. It is kept safe from scratch and harsh salty environments thus making it good for use even under the worst of water abuses.

And when you get to the frame, you now get to understand the main reason why the reel is such a lightweight product. Featuring a graphite frame, you will use this reel throughout the day without feeling like you were carrying and dragging a reel from one spot to the other.

It also comes with two stainless steel ball bearings that have been shielded from harsh environmental conditions. This results in a durable smooth performance being produced.

And to make it easy to use, the reel features a heavy-duty clicker and a graphite rod clamp both of which complement the performance of the convertible power handle

The unique drag washers that have been added in the design are credited for giving the anglers an easy time when it comes to dragging the heavy loads into the boat.


The construction materials and processes discussed above are obvious indications that the product is durable. The reel has been designed for versatility and will easily and comfortably be used for bottom fishing, trolling as well as for casting large baits. With this Penn 114h, which is a wide framed model, you will need to stand at the rail of your boat as you hunt your tuna. The handling is smooth and comfortable, whereas the performance is incredible.

For a smooth and better consistency in dragging, the Penn 114h has been constructed with a multi-disc star drag system. This makes the dragging to be even more “lightweight,” an aspect that doesn’t betray the lightweight reel construction.
