New Penn Slammer 4 is here. The Penn Slammer 3 was released back in 2016 and was an immediate hit and winner of the iCast 2016 best saltwater reel. Since then it has gone on to be an extremely popular saltwater fishing reel. A rugged workhorse built tough in a good range of sizes for our inshore and offshore species.
July 2021 welcomes the Penn Slammer 4 which takes this reliable workhorse to another level. Building off a proven platform of an IPX6 sealed body and spool from the Slammer III, PENN has redesigned the Dura-Drag system in the Slammer IV to not only be better sealed but also offer a wider range of usable drag, all while being bearing supported for extra smoothness. HT-100 drag technology is packed into the small, but tough, 2500 size, a new and highly sought-after addition to the Slammer family. For dependability, the Slammer IV features PENN’s renowned all-brass CNC gear technology, a new 8+1 stainless steel bearing system and a new hydrophobic line roller bearing across the range.

The new Slammer 4 has several technical improvements including a lighter minimum drag setting, hydrophobic bearing line roller and an additional seal under the rotor. A high-speed version, as well as 2500 size, will be added to the line-up.
