To order from this page just make your selections and click on the "Add to Cart" button or the  "Buy" link. The shopping cart uses "cookies" so this option needs to be allowed by your browser.  If you run into difficulties please make use of our toll-free line and give us a call. Our phone numbers, fax and email addresses are posted  at the bottom of this page.  

Orders over $150 are shipped FREE!* Orders less than $150 are billed for shipping. Upon placing your order you'll receive an immediate confirmation via email. You are not billed at that time, the confirming email may not reflect oversize or overweight charges or other issues requiring direct contact. We process orders manually, preferring to have a human actually check things over and contact you should there be questions. Within 24 hours of placing your order you will receive a follow-up email confirmation and final  invoice (pdf doc) reflecting your total charges (Monday-Friday). You are not billed until we actually send you your final invoice.  Orders shipped to CA addresses will have California Sales Taxes applied, out of state orders are tax free. During the ordering process you can select expedited shipping if required. For higher value shipments FedEx will require a signature for delivery - this is for your protection, without this provision there is no recourse for a lost or stolen delivery. You can opt out via FedEx website. Your tracking number will be sent upon pickup by FedEx.  (Within the USA we usually ship via Federal Express ground. International, and oversize/weight items will be billed for shipping and you will be sent an emailed invoice reflecting total charges prior to actual billing. We will not ship without you having had a chance to review the invoice). Hawaii and Alaska shipping will be accomplished using USPS Priority service, and our standard shipping cost policy will apply unless the item ordered does not fit in their standard size boxes. If additional shipping fees are required we will contact you.)


Penn Custom Shop - 3/17/17 - We received notice from Penn that the Custom Shop will be closing. This has been a fun project, we were one of the first to test the proceedure, and we've been able to offer the customized reels since 2010.  The option is going away, Penn will stop taking orders for the Custom Shop mid-summer. So, if you have been thinking about giving yourself a special gift...the clock is ticking.


 

Penn International Custom Shop!
Here Now!

We've got something new to talk about...
Information posted below the delicious images.

 

 

I imagine I've whetted your appetite with the images above. Here's the story. We are a test retailer for Penn's Custom Shop. This is something you'll be hearing more about after January 1, 2010. We can take orders for these great reels now, with delivery within 4-6 weeks. Here are the particulars:

Penn International V Series 2 Speeds

VS Series: 12VS, 16VS, 30VSW, 50VSW, 70VS and 80VSW,
VSX Series: 12VSX, 16VSX, 30VSX, 50VSX and 130VSX
Single Speed V Series: 30VW and 50VW.

These are the only models which can be ordered, and no retro-fitting or customization of older models. This program only applies to sales of NEW reels ordered from us using this page.

You have several options for customization:

SIDEPLATE ENGRAVING - 2 LINES TOP LEVEL UP TO 25 LETTERS
AND SIDEPLATE SUB-LEVEL UP TO 20 LETTERS 

COLOR COMBINATION (maximum 2 colors) FOR FRAME, SIDEPLATES, SPOOL AND DRAG LEVER.

 

You have the choice of six different sideplate image engravings, Penn Logo, US Flag, Tuna, Dolphin/Dorado, Marlin and Sailfish. And, you have seven different possibilities of colors (up to two can be combined on a reel).

Engraving adds $100 cost to the basic price of the reel.
Custom Colors adds $100 to the price of the reel.
When both custom color and engraving are requested the cost is $150 beyond the cost of a basic International. Reel pricing below is based upon both color and engraving.

BLACK GUN SMOKE RED
AMERICAN BLUE INTERNATIONAL GOLD INTERNATIONAL SILVER
   
  TOURNAMENT PINK  

CUSTOM SHOP ORDER FORM

Please select your reel and customizations below. If ordering more than one reel produced with the same options please simply change the quantity selected below. Alternatively, if you'd like to order a few different reels, please re-submit this form for each different model.

Just added, the new International 12VS and 12VSX. Soon to be added Torque Star Drag Reels, and we're hoping the spinners too!

Penn has also added some new engraving choices which are available on all models of reels, but revised as consequence of the new models of reels that are now part of the Custom Shop program.

(Pricing below based on both custom color and engraving. If only one option is needed, save $50.)

Expect delivery to run 30-45 days from initial order and billing. Please carefully look over your confirmation to ensure that everything is EXACTLY as you wish. There are no refunds or exchanges on customized reels - can't do that, it's a custom product made just for you, by specifications you provide. So, be sure of what you want prior to ordering. And, once ordered this is a commitment that can not be changed or cancelled. Of course manufacturer's warrantee applies. We can also spool up your reel if so desired. Please send us an email or give us a call to go over specifics of the line spooling.

We do apologize for any inconvenience this policy creates. But, it's the only way we've found to post an email address on-line and not receive so many solicitations from some family member of a deceased "Nigerian" leader trying to move great sums of  $ out of the country...
