Penn 209 with leadcore

Recommended Posts

I have a couple 209's and I picked up one of those pre made 5 color spools with the backer, lead and leader (I was too lazy to learn to tie the knots :D) and it fit just fine. I did have to "massage" the level wind slightly so the knots would fit through it.

Good Luck

I use a 209 with a 5 color, one of those redi cores, all pre tied from fleet farm and it fit just fine. Caught alot of fish on it too. Yes, it is alot of cranking becuase the retrieve rate is fairly low. Love that loud clicker though, especially in low light, its the only penn i run, and you know right away waht pole it is.

the retrieve ratio on the 209's is real low

Paulywood is absolutely correct, however it will still work. Do yourself a favor and learn this willis knot. It is not overly complicated, and it has never failed on me.

This will allow you to tie up any sort of core that you want ie... 1 , 2, 3, 4, 5 - 10. They all have a place in my line up. And yes Magnumdeke use it for walleye. I have been doing it for 3 or 4 years now with success, even though this year was rather brutal on the bay for me personally.
