For those who choose to pit their wits against the elusive and the enormous, you must have equipment that you can depend on. In carp fishing, that means a big pit-style reel that’s made from the strongest and lightest materials, with a level of smooth and powerful performance that keeps you firmly in control at all times. Enter the PENN® Vantage XT… PENN® has gone back to the drawing board with this superior reel, utilising an impressively rigid yet improbably lightweight XRC carbon infused body and rotor, a durable CNC Gear machined from premium metals for a long lasting life, and a Quick Drag system that allows for lightning fast switches between free spool and drag in the heat of battle. It’s the perfect package for the discerning carp angler, whether you choose the 7000 or 8000 size. But the real party piece of this workhorse is its accurate and effortless long-distance casting. PENN®’s innovative X-Slow Leveline technology means the reel can achieve more than 50 wraps of line per single spool oscillation, resulting in near-perfection when it comes to line lay and extremely accurate and far casts. There’s a reason the PENN® calls it Rocket Spool Design. No less that 9+1 sealed ball bearings contribute to the silky-smooth operation when winding in or playing a fish, while the sealed drag is practically impervious to water or dirt interference. Meanwhile, two included line reducers can be attached to the spool meaning you’ll never use more line than you need. This is a reel designed to deliver time and time again – made for those who pursue perfection and improvement in their carp fishing.
