The PENN Jigmaster Casting Reel 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jigmaster Use this reel on the surf,pier and jetty. Its reel in many fish with its smooth drag. A good 15 years and still running strong. Only reel in its size that is affortable, durable and reliable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Legendary Reel I still have my first Jig Master that has boated hundreds of big blues and stripers. This is the only reel the regulars on the Jersey head boats would ever think of using. And still goin strong to this day.
