Top quality saltwater reels, that is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the brand name Penn. Not without good reason of course, because Penn Fishing has been the manufacturer of reels for saltwater fishing for decades. The brand is almost unbeatable in this product category. Besides producing sea fishing reels, Penn has a wide range of fishing rods that are geared towards all kinds of fishing. Penn’s range of clothing is also worthy of note.
The brand was founded in 1932 by Otto Henze, a German who emigrated to the United States in 1922 to work in the angling world. Otto Henze had a dream: one day he wanted to manufacture his own reels. By gaining a lot of experience in other companies, he acquired the knowledge and in 1932 he produced his own reels. After this great history, Henze's brand, Penn, has grown into a very big player in the angling world. Series such as the Penn Affinity, Penn Battle and for example the Penn Slammer are world famous and many anglers proudly stand on the waterfront with these reels.
As mentioned before, Penn mainly produces reels. This is really their core business. The range of fishing rods, however, has grown tremendously in recent years. Penn clearly focuses on this market and the rods that are released are all of great class. The rods are often intended for a specific discipline, which means that a Penn rod is exactly what you need. In particular, the Penn catfish rods and the rods used on saltwater are mega popular. Are you looking for the ideal rod? Then take a look at the new Penn rods.
