Smoothest Reel in my arsenal

Reels are monsters! PS3 7500 paired with Penn Carnage 2 loaded with 60# depth hunter for cobia, blackfin, dolphin, yellowfin, sails and the occasional white marlin to cast at. This thing gives them the business! Would never need the 50# of drag it offers but good to know if I hooked a huge yellow or even a small bft I would have a chance to stop em.

I've taken this reel out a few times, No fish but it casts well and handles like a dream!
ProsGreat cast-ability and a very comfortable cranking handle.
ConsSlightly heavier than expected but that is not a big issue.

Looking forward to spring striper fishing with Slammer III
November 30, 2016
The reel will not see action until this spring. My hope is it will stand up to a few dunks in the surf and lots of wave spray.

The Shimano Terez Spinning rods H or XH power would pair well with the Penn Slammer 3 10500.

I have a St. Croix Triumph Surf 7 ft rod medium power. Which penn slammer 3 reel will be a good fit for it.
Either the 3500 or 4500 size reel would be suitable for the St Croix Triumph 7ft. I would advise not going bigger than those reels. Thank you for considering TackleDirect for your fishing needs.

from Maryland asked:
December 31, 2016
In the description it lists the bearings and drives as sealed - I fish a lot off of jetties, and am constantly getting dunked. On several occasions I've had to break a reel down and re-grease it after it stopped working after it was submerged. Is this reel waterproof? In other words, can I crank it underwater like I can a Van Staal 150VM?
The Penn Slammer 3 is not meant to be cranked consistently under water. I would advise not cranking this reel under water like the VM's.
