Default Penn Senator Made in China

Just bought an Senator 3/0 Special at Academy and when I got home, I noticed it said made in china on the box and reel . What the heck! I guess Penn picks which models are made In the States and what models are not.

Only the top of their line is now made in America, all others are made in China.

If it's less than a certain dollar amount, it will be made in China. Their more expensive reels are made in USA.

Do Penn Reel Suck or What ? ? ? ? ? ?

We just bought 4 new ones in July.. 4/0... all were chow mein. We'll see how they hold up against the ones I've had for 5-6 years.

The Penn Baja is a beast and is bulletproof and made in the USA. Other than that I would go with a Daiwa Sealine.
