This is not your typical kite fishing reel. This Hooker Electric Penn® International® 30 VSX-VSW Kite Reel is capable of retrieving at speeds of 800 feet per min at 40 pounds of drag, with full variable speed. Please take note: It is capable of breaking spars under hi-wind conditions while flying your kites, so set your drag before use. (No other reel manufacture can claim that.) The handle mechanism is retained and it can be used in low gear if needed. The reel is compact, light, fast, and packs all the versatility a kite reel needs.

Penn® International® 30 Two Speed Lever Drag Reel. The International V-Series Lever Drag reel raises the standard for offshore anglers. The International V reels offer the most advanced and reliable fish-fighting performance from Penn. With an ergonomically designed, contoured, one-piece machined frame built from lightweight yet strong aircraft grade aluminum, this reel may just outlast your fishing days. A fully machined, stainless steel gear system and optimal Dura-Drag system offers unbelievable cranking power and smooth starts with no hesitation. Quick Shift Automatically engages with a deliberate bump of the shift button (low-speed) or spin of the shift knob (high-speed). This is the easiest and most angler-friendly two-speed feature on the market and can be performed without letting go of the handle.  No more hesitations or jerky drags thanks to the smooth performance and more consistent drag pressure. In laboratory testing, the new Dura-Drag sustained its original drag settings after 100-hours of drag burn-time. This powerful system endures high levels of heat generated during big game battles as it is based on the same materials used in the transmission of racing cars. Finally, the Dura-Drag system contains Phenolic bonding agents to prevent premature material breakdown and block water from entering. Push-to-Turn Designed to prevent unintentional changes to a Lever-Drags drag setting.
