The Penn Slammer IV DX Spinning Reel takes the new standard Slammer IV up a notch, making them the ultimate Penn spin reel available! It has a few key features that really boost the performance and durability of the reels even further, along with a very nice change in cosmetics too.
The biggest feature to be added to the upgraded Slammer IV DX reels is the upgraded CNC Gears (main and pinion gear), which are made of ultra-strong stainless steel rather than brass for extra strength and durability. For a heavy-duty workhorse reel, strength is really what you're looking for and durability is a welcomed add-on, this upgrade covers both.
On top of this, the Penn Slammer IV DX reels also have an extra ball bearing compared to the standard Slammer IV reels that sits under the spool, which gives the Dura-Drag additional support and increases overall reeling smoothness as well.
The other very obvious change to the upgraded Slammer IV DX range is the sleek black and silver cosmetic, a bit nicer on the eyes and certainly matches up nicely on a wider range of rods if that's what you're into.
The Penn Slammer IV DX reels are still built off the proven IPX6 sealed body and spool for fantastic water resistance, and also feature the new hydrophobic line roller that repels water better than previous models.
Penn have also redesigned the Dura-Drag system in the Penn Slammer IV DX reels to not only be better sealed, but also offer a wider range of usable drag. All models feature the Dura-Drag system with carbon fibre washers, other than the smallest 2500 sized reel which has HT-100 drag technology with carbon fibre washers within them.
There's a reel for all types of fishing in the Penn Slammer IV DX spinning reel range, so if you're looking for the ultimate in a heavy-duty Penn reel, this one's for you!

IPX6 Sealed - the Slammer’s renowned IPX6 sealing is improved further by an additional seal under the rotor before the labyrinth seal, and a change in the way the drag is sealed to offer a reduced minimum drag for improved low-end smoothness.
Hydrophobic Line Roller - repels saltwater better than previous models.
Dura-Drag System - Silky smooth Dura-Drag carbon fibre washers eliminate hesitation even under extreme drag settings, and are impregnated with a Phenolic bonding agent to reduce wear and water intrusion.
HT-100 Drag System - The new small but tough 2500 size features HT-100™ carbon fibre drag washers with PENN’s proprietary heat-dispersing grease, the ‘100’ indicating that 100 miles of line can be pulled of the reel with no wear on the washers.
Full Metal body, sideplate and rotor - to minimise body flex in sizes 3500-8500.
Full Metal body and sideplate, graphite rotor - to reduce weight in the smaller 2500 sizes
Reduced Rotor Weight - for smoother operation
Machined aluminium power knob and spare Hypalon knob across the range
Automatic Bail Trip - on 2500-5500 sizes
Manual Bail Trip - on 6500-8500 sizes
Braid Ready - To eliminate slippage and the need to use monofilament backing before spooling, the Slammer IV DX features a textured rubber gasket at the base of the spool to tie your braid directly onto.
Superline Spool - No backing needed because the rubber gasket keeps superline from slipping.
Instant Anti-Reverse - Eliminates rotor backplay for instant hook sets.
Techno Balanced - gives smooth retrieves.
Line Capacity Rings - Line capacities on spool are marked at 1/3rd, 2/3rd and full capacity.
Leveline - The perfect oscillation for an extremely even line lay.
