Great spinning reel for bottom fishing
November 22, 2014
Used the 6500 for some grouper fishing and with the drag cranked down they were no match for this reel. Pulled 25 and 30lb fish out of cover with no problems to the reel. A great buy at twice the price.
ProsGreat smooth and strong drag system. Lots of line capacity
ConsIf used properly there are none

This is a very heavy duty spinning reel. It's got a ton of drag and a solid build, great for offshore fishing. Along with being heavy duty it is also heavy and big, so just be aware of that. Also, something I wish I had known is that if you don't put the spool on correctly, the screw on the top will lock into the spool and as a fish runs it will actually crank down on the drag. This happened to me last weekend tuna fishing east of Chatham, MA.
ProsHeavy duty Stong Drag Well Built
ConsHeavy Large size Use caution when putting the spool on...

I just bought the St. Croix Avid Surf 12' spinning rod (AVSS120HMF2) and I'm still looking for a reel to go with it. Would the Fin-Nor OFS 9500 be a good fit, as a friend of mine suggested when he visited me last week? Because my current Daiwa EMCast 5000 which I put on it from my old surf rod feels a little "light" on this rod.
We feel that the Fin-Nor 9500 is too large (heavy) for that rod. It is designed more for offshore fishing than for surf fishing. Take a look at the Penn Spinfisher V 6500 or the Quantum Boca 50. Either reel would be great on that rod.

What would be a good setup for west coast offshore fishing? Looking for a workhorse combination that could bottom fish but also throw bait and jigs.
There really isn't such an animal. Rods are designed for certain applications and are built to handle the stresses placed on the rod by those applications. For example, a jigging rod needs to be sensitive and have a lot of backbone. Yet it also needs to have a soft tip to work jigs properly. A rod built for casting lures, generally has a faster tip section to punch the lure off the tip and give better distance. Of course you can get a rod to use for various applications, it just won't be great for all of them. The best choice for an all around reel in the Offshore Fin-Nor that you asked about would be the 6500 size due to the line capacity and size. As for a rod, go with a Shakespeare, model SHA-0027. It gives you a wide wage as far as lure weights and also good lifting power with decent sensitivity.

Want to fish the OF S9500 with #65 braid. Looking to throw poppers and maybe some jigs for tuna/yellowtail on a west coast long range (10 day) What 6' to 7' spinning rod would you suggest go with this reel. Fish could be in the 60 to 80 lb range. Thanks
We would suggest going with either a medium-heavy or heavy Shimano Terez spinning rod.

Hi. What would be a good Fin-Nor rod to match up with the Fin-nor OFS8500? Looking to use this reel primarily from a boat but ocassionally from the surf for Sharks. Thanks!
The FSGS7050 (FIN-0382) would work very well for you.

Please suggest a rod to go with this reel. I am buying it for my son who will fish for snook, cobia, shark, and other big inshore species.
Fin-Nor FNS7025-7 Offshore Rod "FIN-0212". Would be perfect as a general purpose rod for all of those species.
