brought a penn 430ssg brand new and on first trip after catching
5 croakers with it i felt a pop in the reel while reeling and retrieving. inspected the reel to see that the screws were starting to come out and the gears were starting to show which left the handle useless.
im in no way a penn basher because i own a penn 460 slammer and going to purchase 2 more, but far as the penn ssg with its graphite body never!!!
