Default New Penn 706 Z

At ICAST, Penn has the new 706z reel on display. I don't know any details other than what is on the short Youtube video put out by Tackle Direct, but the 706 is bailless and they're making a 704 with a bail. The price will be around 200 dollars. Below is the link:


Tackle Direct has a lot of videos, hosted by Ed Berger, of new tackle coming out.

ICAST is the International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades, probably the largest trade show in the world for fishing tackle. It is held each summer in Las Vegas, and gives a preview of tackle that will soon show up in tackle shops.

Didn't Mitchel back in the late 60s/70s have a bail-less reel? I wished now I would have never gotten rid of my Penns over the years.

Still have both michell and pen bailess reels... My daughter works on the gulfshores pier and takes my penns to fish before or after work and says she is asked daily to sell them.. LOL love my 706's... i think the sound of the bearing is the thing i remember most as a kid on the pensacola pier.... it gives me chills just sitting here thinking about it...

For those that have a 706 from many, many years ago....this reel is the same one. All parts from the new one will fit the original 706. Great news if you have one that may need rebuilt/fixed.

Cool, the exact same reel! I cant believe how much $ these have been fetching over the last 5 years or so on the used market. I guess this will drive some of the used prices down as well.

Yes Mitchell made bail less reels back in the 50's and most spinning reels had half bails or no bail wire at all.

What is/are the advantage/s of a bail-less spinning reel? I recall a discussion of them in a thread a while back, but can't find it.
