Hello all:

Does anyone know where I can get a Penn 350M Leveline reel that is in good working order?

Have not found any other levelwind reel with the spiral bar. Unfortunately Penn quit making them after 1997.

I have two of them I use for trolling with leaded line for large Rainbows in the big lakes of the Pacific NW and British Columbia.

They are by far the best levelwind reels that I have ever used for cranking in these big fighters who can take out a lot of line in a hurry. The spiral bar ensures that the line NEVER can catch or be slowed down by the levelwind mechanism. The levelwind takes your mind off of ensuring the line does not bunch up on the reel while fighting the fish.

Thanks,
Joe

I believe U.S. Reels is making a new levelwind using a system very similiar to the Penn 350. I have a Penn 350 and that is a nice levelwind system.

Hi Joe,

I found mine on ebay. Patience, and a new set of drag washers, usually yields a good reel for a decent price. Happy hunting.

Take a look at the Penn 320 GT2 I’m not sure how it will compare to the 350 I've never seen one before I know that the 320 will take a beating has a case hardened level wind and is capable of handling wire line.
