just bought my first new reel in years a penn sg4000 from outcast and it has a feature that i did not know about until i did the old tire kick. WOW i am super jazzed about this feature! has it just been too long since i bought a new reel? is this a recent development in reel technology? is this a standard? is it on your reel(s)? what do you think about INFINITE ANTI REVERSE (what a cool name too huh?)

The OLE Confused.

Infinite anti-reverse? I think I get it now. So your saying that the spool on the reel doesn't go backwards at all once you stop reeling? Like my 8500ss that goes backwards a bit then clunk when it stops , allowing an inch or so of line to come off before it goes clunk. In other words no slack in the reel.

I Swim I've replaced them with acouple QuantumCatalyst40's inshore a Shimano Shara 2500 Fd and going to pick upa couple of the Qunt---30 in the morning.The 2500 and the 30's will work on the boat and the yak.

Look at thedifference between the bearing's, finish,price of the Cat- Boca-Cabo's. You can get2 Cat's for about half the price; if one go's tit's up aftera few years you're still money a head. The old PTI's can't stand up to the salt without extra care,the inshoremodel does fine with aGOODwash down.

The older model Pennshad alever on the rear of the reel for the reverseon/off and that's what broke on most of my older Penns. Glad to see they don't have that lever on the rear any more.
