Really Really Good
December 13, 2020
This is a solid entry level setup. Ive got mine spooled with 50lb power pro and a top shot of 65lb power pro. Ive caught anything from little whiting all the way up to a 7ft 150lb lemon shark off the beach. All around good setup.
ProsPrice, and smooth drag from the spinfisher.
ConsRod is not very durable, some of the eyelet inserts started to break and fall out. Rod still performs great though.

Great rod and reel for surf fishing
October 17, 2018
I have the 10' rod and it's perfect for casting beyond the surf. Also works great for getting the line above the waves while in a rod holder. The reel is great and strong enough for pretty much anything you will catch. I have 80lb braid on it.

Penn SSV6500 10ft surf combo
July 27, 2016
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

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
November 29, 2014
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.

If this rod can only work for tuna fishing 10-20lbs tuna, can the reel still be used with different rod for tuna fishing? if yes, what rod can be used? another question, is jigging rod = offshore rod (boat rod)? or that's another type of rod? are there jigging rods for tuna?
1 Answers
The Spinfisher 6500 is a tad small for the bigger tuna fish that most people target. To answer your second question. Jigging rods can also be used inshore.
