Penn SSV6500 10ft surf combo
Bought this combo for the cape cod canal and the rhode island beaches and breachways. It was by far the best fishing investment I've ever made. It casts effortlessly as far as you have the skills to throw it, and the retrieve is so smooth. Have caught a few stripers in the high 40 pound range and you could definitely catch fish much larger with no problems. Highly recommended.
ProsCasting Ability, Smooth Retrieve, looks like a rolex

Penn Spin
I've been using Penn products for 30 years and they still have the workmanship. The rods tube wrapped handles are easy to grip and the light weight composite loads and casts well. And nothing else on the market I've used, cranks in line like a Penn reel.
ProsQuality, modern materials and light weight. Nice aesthetics and strong combo for all surf, fish size ranges.

Can’t wait for Spring
Just bought this combo - the Spinfisher 6500 just feels like powerful, but effortless. Went with 150 yards 20# mono topped off with 140 yards of 50# power pro moss green. The rod is heavy power, good for bait and heavy lures. I may look at an 8 or 9 ft. Medium power for some of my lighter plugs.
Prosone of the best overall reels for surf rod well suited for fishing bait and heavier lures in strong currents
Consrod might not be best choice for lighter plugs like SPs/Bombers

Excellent combo
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.

David, Thank you for answering my last question so promptly and clearly. Of course, since you brought it up, now I have to ask which 9' surf rod you recommend for the SSV4500 based on your previous answer (hopefully, something around the same price if possible)? Thanks again, -Dave
If you want to keep it around the same price range, I would recommend the St Croix Triumph series. When I first started using lures, I was using the SSV 4500 with that rod and I liked it. I think that it balances perfectly and I caught a good amount of fish on it before I upgraded to a different 9 foot rod. Here is a link to the rod:

Hello, What is the approximate weight of this combo? I am looking for something to cast and retrieve lures in the surf all day. Thanks!
The approximate weight of the combo is just over two pounds. Personally, I feel like it would be a bit heavy if you were going to be throwing lures all day. I use a Spinfisher V 4500 on a 9 foot rod for throwing lures on the beach and jetty.
