And the 9M, the smallest Penn Level Wind, is perhaps the most popular reel of choice for Sockeye trolling. As for the guts of the Level Wind series of reels, a precision machined stainless steel pinion and high strength bronze alloy main gear provides some serious cranking power, while the soft-grip counter balanced handle makes it a pleasure to do so.
