Product Description

Penn International 70VS 2-Speed Reel

Built proud in Philadelphia, the International VS are precision machined from high-strength, lightweight, aircraft grade aluminum, not weak plastic parts that may flex under heavy drags or intense heat. The two speed design allows for quick adjustment into high or low gear.


The Dura-Drag system results in a smoother start up and virtually eliminates hesitation, even under extreme drag settings. Consistent drag performance is arguably the most important feature required during long battles. In the lab, the competition’s drag force varied by almost 30% where the Dura-Drag system maintained the same level of drag pressure throughout without fluctuation.

Made in the USA
The International VS is built in our Philadelphia, Pennsylvania manufacturing center. Our experienced crew has been designing and producing durable, high-quality reels in this facility since 1932.

Quick-Shift 2-speed system shifts into high or low gear allowing you to easily adjust to any fishing situation on the fly.

The Push-to-Turn preset drag knob eliminates accidental changes to the drag and prevents lost fish due to pulled hooks or slack in your line.

Ultimate Adjustable Clicker
The ultimate adjustable clicker on the 12VS allows for the greatest range of bait clicker settings in the industry. Simply turn the dial clockwise to increase the tension for fishing bigger baits or turn it counterclockwise to lighten the tension for smaller baits or to detect lighter strikes. (Available in 12VS only)

Full Metal Body
Constructed with a full metal body and side plates to keep precise gear alignment under heavy loads
