The PENN® International® Auto-stop reel includes all of the speed and power of the Standard reels, but with an added level-wind and digital line counter. What sets this reel apart from the rest is its Bluetooth connectivity. In place of the RF remote, the addition of Bluetooth connectivity means that now you can see your line counter, RPMs and control the speed from your iPhone or iPad. Function requires Hooker Electric’s "ReelTime" app available at the Apple App Store. Desktop requires iTunes to download app. Built from Aircraft-grade Aluminum construction right here in the USA, these reels are built tough to last a lifetime.
