The new Penn 525 MAG 2 takes MAG reels to new levels with greater distance, control, and power. On first sight, the 525 looks very much like the old 525 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 gone into the 525 MAG 2. 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 525 MAG 2 also has a narrower spool and cage, and it also weighs 414gm. The benefit means that it creates a huge new line capacity, 256m of 0.38 nylon, so it becomes a contender as a great distance casting reel with 15lbs 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 525 MAG 2 will handle the lot. A forged and machined aluminium spool sits on a 'live' spindle which allows it to 'free float' for reduced drag and increased performance. The spool is controlled by the all-new patented adjustable magnetic brake which is adjusted by a dial on the left-hand side plate.
