My favorite inshore fishing is for snook. I use the 4500 spooled with 30lb sufix832 on a custom 8' rod. And a 7' penn carnage rod. These reels absolutely tame snook! By far the best drag system available on a reel. Perhaps some of those $800 and up reels are better but I'll never know! And if fishing from my kayak, they seem waterproof to me because I've had a few dunks. Of course not really an issue if fishing from boat or land. If I had to choose one spinning reel to fish with, it would be the Slammer III. Thank you Penn!
And the Clash reels are excellent reels too btw. Penn has really stepped their game up over the last few years....
This is possibly one of the best Penn reels for price/performance ratio in the mid-upper range
The winner for the best new product at iCast in the category of â€œBest Saltwater Reelâ€.since 2016 !
Slammer III is the first spinning reel to offer the Dura-Drag material. Dura-Drag is a proprietary material that is even stronger than the HT-100 keyed carbon washers that you find in the Slammer Drag on the Penn Spinfisher V reels.
