Penn Affinty ll Series
Penn Affinity 2 Series
I have been using the Penn Affinity series for a few years now, still going strong, and they are always my reel of choice for Pike dead-baiting and Carp fishing (see link below). They come in a 7000 and an 8000 size, plus a Live Liner version, rrp starts at £139.99
Penn have brought out the Affinity Series 2 for 2017 and they look just as good as their predecessors. Available in all good tackle shops.

What Penn say…
The all new Penn Affinity Black features a strong but light-weight graphite frame with graphite side plates, a forged and machined Long-stroke aluminium spool with line capacity rings, 6+1 stainless steel shielded ball bearings for smoothness under heavy retrieve pressure, a powerful but smooth HT-carbon fibre drag system, rotor brake, and a manual bale arm.
Built-in slow oscillation gives incredible line-lay over the spool for ultra long-range casting performance with both braid and mono lines, plus the reel offers two line clips, and is salt-water resistant to minimise long term corrosion. Ideal for all long distance Carp angling.
