The PENN Affinity III is a fantastic longcast reel equipped with the best features to make this reel as durable as possible. The Quick and smooth HT-100 drag system, which is fully sealed, will give you the best experience of fighting a big carp you can imagine, over and over again. Due to the 7 sealed stainless steel ball bearings including an instant anti-reverse bearing, the Affinity III runs very smooth, even under pressure. Because of the extra slow oscillation system in combination with the Long Stroke spool, a perfect line lay is created with both mono and braided lines, resulting in extreme casting distance. As well, the reel is saltwater resistant to minimize long term corrosion. Ideal for all long distance carp angling.
