The FRC8000 is built for one thing .....horespower. Matched with a Penn Rampage jigging rod and you have an inexpensive Grouper slayer. Not once, while fighting a fat bellied grouper with the 8000/Rampage setup, will you say...I wish I had a stronger reel. It simply does the job.
Easily operational. Smooth, great ratio for a large reel.
Housing needs heavier paint. Scratches easily.

Plenty of Backbone

This reel has the right stuff for the price. It hold adequate line and handles weight really well. Paired for jigging with a 6.6 Penn Medium Heavy jigging rods is plenty for grouper and snapper. The price you can not beach. The performance is PENN.

I bought this to put on an old rod as a back up while taking 3 kids out on an open party boat. Worked great.
Nice large reel handle, holds plenty of line.

I use this reel surf casting for sharks. I personally have 2 loaded with 500yds of 65lb braid. Yes 500yds will fit if you pack it tight.

Good Value

I own both Penn Battle and Fierce. Previously owned Daiwa and Shimano. I would comfortably tell anyone that you are getting about the same reel for less money. I consistently use these reels for kingfish, cobia and grouper for the last 4 years, and I've never had a failure. The finish has worn a little due to extreme abuse, but the reels still work like a charm. It's hard to justify spending more, even for a battle when you get such high line capacity and 25 pounds of drag with these Fierce 8000s for only $80.00. Killer deal and Good value.

Awesome Reel!
January 24, 2015
Bought this item to pair up with a Daiwa Beefstick 11'. Its primary duty is to be loaded with 30lb mono and used for crab snaring here in the Bay Area… Works like a charm. No flex under heavy load compared to my okuma reel…
-All steel body -Massive line capacity -smooth retrieve -color matches my daiwa beefstick perfectly! (not really a pro or con, but definitely a pro for someone with OCD like me, lol)
-Due to the folding handle design, i had a small paint chip on the the bail arms from shipping. Not in any way a fault of tackle direct as they have awesome packaging. Box was sealed from factory so its just one of those things that happen during shipping from factory. Definitely not enough for me to have to exchange the item

Money well spent
March 18, 2014
I bought this when I first moved to Florida because I have had only good luck with my other Penn reel. I have it rigged on a Penn rampage rod ( which I could only find from here at tackle direct) its the 80 to 130 lb rated rod. I have 80 lb braid spooled on it. I can cast any bait or rig weighing up to 10 oz. No problem. I have used it on piers and docks many times and have never had any trouble with it. Caught many fish with it.
Price, availabilty
Mabe the weight of it if you are small.

Great Reel
February 27, 2014
This is a great reel for the money. One of the best price values on the market. It has a very smooth consistent drag and loads of line capacity. I currently have one of these Fierce 8000 reels on a Okuma 12ft surf rod loaded with 500 yards of power pro braid and a 20ft mono 80lb shock leader. This combination will sling 6oz of bait a football field. Great reel it has seen two seasons of fishing and is still like new.
Strong reel Smooth consistent drag Lots of line capacity Price is great for a reel of this quality
