I was directed here by another tht user. I have just bought my first offshore boat and am trying to find some good rod/reel combos. I will be fishing the gulf and doing some trolling and bottom fishing. I have been looking at the Penn Internationals and can't figure out the suffix codes. The Ie; T, TW, VSW ETC. Also I have noticed some 114 6/0 or 113 4/0 how does that number system work. I have also looked at the shimanos and wondered the same thing. any suggestions would be well received.

Sorry for the delay. December was a blur!
T,TW are discontinued. VSW is a 2 speed international, VW is a single speed international. 4/0 and 6/0 are just penn sizes...6/0 being bigger than 4/0.
Depending on your price range we can set you up to what you want to spend. The 113H Penn senator combos would work, or internationals...penn,shimano,avets there are differences for all.
Let me know your thoughts and welcome to the board.
