Authority is the new PENN standard – and anglers love it!

Focusing on best-in-class smoothness and sealing, the PENN Authority has been recognised as the best saltwater product launched onto the European market in 2022.

That’s because it has been voted top of its category in the first-ever Angler’s Choice awards, launched at the end of the year by EFTTEX, the No.1 tackle trade show in Europe. EFTTEX gathered together the winners from its trade awards and presented the short-list online for anglers to choose their favourites. There was no match for the PENN Authority in the Saltwater section.

Its power lies in technology, says PENN. Utilising CNC Gear technology™, the precision-cut stainless steel gear train, paired with the Dura-Drag™ system, will give you the power to tame anything from within the deep blue. The IPX8 sealed body and spool are top of the line, ensuring that no water will reach the internals, even if submerged.

Whether fishing in creeks or in the blue water, the PENN® Authority™ sets a new standard for durability and performance.

PENN says: “An EFTTEX Angler’s Choice Award is great recognition for the hard work our category and R&D teams have put into the development of meaningful innovation. We are passionate anglers who take pride in making great products for fellow anglers, so it is extremely important to the team that the award is given by anglers themselves. We are humbled, proud and very happy.”
