When it comes to fishing tackle, lefty anglers often get the short end of the stick. Most lever drag reels don’t have left-handed models and aren’t adjustable. So Penn introduced the 246LD, a lefties-only lever drag reel that can take on gamefish. The 246LD has a one-piece graphite frame, anodized aluminum spool, four stainless-steel ball bearings, and machined stainless-steel gears. It holds 475 yards of 30-pound test line and has a 3.9:1 gear ratio, for a good balance of speed and cranking power. It comes with a graphite rod clamp and fits Formula, Tuna Stick, Sabre, Slammer, and Power Stick rods. Price: $170. Contact Penn Fishing Tackle at 215/229-9415, www.pennreels.com.
