The new Penn 515 MAG2 takes MAG reels to new levels with greater distance,control and Power. On first sight, the 515 looks very much like the old 515 mag reel, but as soon as you get the under the hood, you find that this reel has been given a serious makeover. Pull it apart and the internal mechanism and parts barely resemble the old version. This new and improved reel is sure to take shore casting to the next level.
So much work has went into the 515 MAG2. For a start, it has a new index magnetic braking system which is precise and gives full control from zero to maximum braking. This gives longer, smoother casts. The Penn 515 MAG2 also has a narrower spool and cage, and it also weighs 408gm. The benefit means that it creates a HUGE NEW LINE CAPACITY OF 247m of 0.36 nylon, so it becomes a contender as a great distance casting reel with 12lbs mono. Couple that with the 6:1 retrieve and the famous Penn Versa Drag, and it will tackle those rough ground stretches with ease. Be it Dabs or Tope, the 515 MAG2 will handle the lot
