OK, I emailed Scott's Bait & Tackle (scottsbt.com) in Little Egg Harbor New Jersey about the pound rating on the drag of the Penn Long Beach 65. They are Penn reel experts. Mo from Scott's emailed me back this morning that there wasn't any official rating from Penn on the old reels but independant testers had done this and the Long Beach 60 and 65 reels are tested at 20 pounds drag.
