Peer, Peerless Reel Specs
 

REEL INFO: Levelwind Series - from bottom fishing for flounder to trolling for stripers on the Chesapeake, the Penn Level Wind is perhaps the most popular and well-known inshore conventional reel. As for the guts of the Level Wind series of reels, a precision machined stainless steel pinion and high strength bronze alloy main gear provides some serious cranking power, while the soft-grip counter balanced handle makes it a pleasure to do so.(2004 Penn Catalog)

HISTORY: Called the "New! MONOFIL" in 1958 catalog. Early models had plastic spools. "M" Designates chrome over bronze metal. spool. Modern spools are black aluminum, but rather than changing the model from 9M to 9L etc, Penn just left the model numbers as is.
