Looks like the new PENN Slow-Pitch reels are starting to hit the stores now, and the rods should be there by the end of next month. This nice lingcod was caught onboard one of Alan's favorite boats, the "California Dawn" out of Berkeley, using the new Battalion 250gr. rod and Fathom FTH10XNLD reel, on a Williamson 200gr. Koika jig along the Marin County coastline.

Sweet Ling. It took a while for slow pitch to get to the USA.  Friends in Asia have been using this technique for years.  Glad it's finally here.

The key Slow-Pitch becoming popular on the west coast, will be the ability to get beautiful reds like this in 300 feet of water, using light "sporting" tackle.

Here is a side by side size comparison.
The well-known 25N on the lower right, and the 15XN next to it.
Top row is the 8XN on the left, and 10XN on the right.
