The Penn Jigmaster Reel is a conventional saltwater star drag reel designed for saltwater fishing applications. The Jigmaster Reel, from Penn, has been a longtime favorite among anglers fishing the Albacore Day Boats on the West Coast, as well as Kingfish anglers in the Southeast. One of our earliest designs, the Jigmaster features a quick take-apart feature that allows anglers to change spools (and line classes) while on the water when the fish become line and leader shy and the scaling down of tackle is required. The Jigmaster Reel features durable and lightweight composite side plates as well as a lightweight black anodized aluminum spool. Internally, the Jigmaster possesses a manganese-bronze main gear and a stainless steel pinion. Penn's HT-100 powered drag system ensures smooth reel function even when under heavy stress. The reel's counter balanced handle with an oversized paddle fighting knob offers a high level of power to the user. Penn uses corrosion-resistant chrome plated external parts which keep the reel in tip top shape for many years of use. The Penn Jigmaster Reel is offered in a single 500 size right hand model.
