International V

Built proud in Philadelphia, the International V reels are precision machined from high-strength, lightweight, aircraft grade aluminum, not weak plastic parts that may flex under heavy drags or intense heat. The two speed design allows for quick adjustment into high or low gear.

Made in the USA

The International VS is built in our Philadelphia, Pennsylvania manufacturing center. Our experienced crew has been designing and producing durable, high-quality reels in this facility since 1932.


The Dura-Drag system results in a smoother start up and virtually eliminates hesitation, even under extreme drag settings. Consistent drag performance is arguably the most important feature required during long battles. In the lab, the competition’s drag force varied by almost 30% where the Dura-Drag system maintained the same level of drag pressure throughout without fluctuation.

Full Metal Body

Constructed with a full metal body and side plates to keep precise gear alignment under heavy loads


The Push-to-Turn preset drag knob eliminates accidental changes to the drag and prevents lost fish due to pulled hooks or slack in your line.

Braid Ready

Braid ready to handle the strain that braided lines put on a reel.

Ultimate Adjustable Clicker

The ultimate adjustable clicker on the 12V allows for the greatest range of bait clicker settings in the industry. Simply turn the dial clockwise to increase the tension for fishing bigger baits or turn it counterclockwise to lighten the tension for smaller baits or to detect lighter strikes. (Available in 12V size only)
