  1. I have the 11' version. It's a 50/50, I believe all the 2 piece models are 50/50. Penn always seems to recommend reels on the larger size. Their reels seem to be hit or miss with wind knots. I have an SSV 6500 that I have to keep slightly under spooled to prevent them. The SSV 4500 and Slammer III 6500 are filled properly and haven't had one knot yet.
  2. J+H has them listed on their web site. Says they're due in in November.
  3. This is what I learned to do as well. But after a while I said the heck with that and went back to the bail. It was too much to do on every cast, especially at night in the dark.
  4. Although I have no problems with my bailless VS, that is why I went back to a bail on my SSV. I have yet to lose a lure due to the bail closing but lost a few with the bailless.
  5. Thanks but I'm going to pass.
  6. OK, let me know.
  7. OK, thanks. What about $425?......
  8. Would you let it go for $400?
  9. Thanks Tony
  10. I'd like to know this also.
  11. Either one will be fine. They're not quite an ounce different in weight. The deciding factor would be the line you're going to use. 30# or less, go with the 5500. #40 or more, go with the 6500.
  12. I'm not sure the 9 will work for me. Once I get them l can back to you, if you're interested.
  13. Thanks Marty. I'll take them both.
