Just bought this Penn rod/reel combo from Tackle Direct. Great customer service and fast shipping. I bought this combo to surf fish the beach here in Destin Florida. I rigged the reel with 300 yards of 50# Power Pro moss green braided line and a 5' 50# fluorocarbon leader casting a 3oz pyramid lead sinker and live shrimp. I was more than satisfied with the smooth powerful casting ability of the rod and the the reel retrieve is outstanding, you can immediately feel the power of the SSV6500 gear box in action. Smooth micro adjustable sealed drag and sealed bearings makes for easy clean up when the fishing done.
