Anyone have experience with the Penn International 975 reel. Looking at getting one for the upcoming season.

The calcuttas are good I second that. but if you are fishing salmon deep or trolling a levelwind they get jammed with jellyfish snot and will cost you a fish. if you are mooching or trolling downriggers an avet sx is a good lever drag open face reel for around 160.00 - 175.00 if you are fishing partyboats a lamiglass norwest or kenai special 8'6" 12-20 is a good rod choice 125.00-150.00 if you are on a private boat a shorter rod is better makes netting the fish much easier a 7'15-30 rod will do nicely seeker, calstar, shimano trevala , daiwa vip all good for this
