The Authority is the new PENN standard. Focusing on best-in-class gear feel and sealing, these reels will have a size and gear ratio for every scenario. The Authority will elevate PENN to a new premium category where it has not played. Featuring an IPX8 sealed body and spool, with a best-in-class stainless steel gear train, these reels far surpass the durability and performance required.

With an IPX8 sealed body AND spool, this reel takes long runs in heavy seas or the pounding of big surf in its stride. Beefed up by ultra-durable CNC machined stainless steel main and pinion gears, the patented Dura-Drag™ technology enforces obedience, eliminating hesitation even under the most extreme settings. A 12+1 premium stainless steel bearing system combines with Leveline slow oscillation to ensure enduring smoothness and precision, behind all that trademark PENN® power. The lasting AUTHORITY™ in saltwater spinning reels is here.
