What I do for a living:


  1. hi everyone, looking for this Rod, PENN TRQ BOAT SERIES. i already have one but I'm looking for another one for my friend, anyone know where do i buy it? thanks in advance
  2. Hey yall I have a penn battle 5000 which was first spooled by bass pro shops a long time ago. I just decided to change the line but when I tried spooling it, the line lay was bunched mostly near the top and not very much at the bottom. However, my reel did not come with extra washers so I could change the line lay. Do yall know where I could get some?? What size/type/amount of washers do I need. Would 1 extra thin washer in addition to my current one be enough??
  3. Looking to sell some reels that I’ve collected over the years and were barely used. All are in great shape - no visible scrapes, gauges or nicks except for the Shimano that has slight marks from the rod reel seat. All payment via PayPal FF or in person in SE/Central CT. 1. Daiwa Laguna LT4000c - loaded with 20# braid (can’t remember the brand) - super light and very smooth for a budget reel - $35 shipped 2. Shimano Spheros SW 4000xg - great reel but I have a Vanford and Stradic so this one just sits. Comes with box. $70 shipped 3. Penn Pursuit 2 and 3 4k - selling as a lot. These were probably fished 2 or 3x each for porgies from a pier. $50 shipped thanks for looking!
  4. Saw one of my pals using the new Penn 704z that was re-released around 2013? Discontinued in I believe in the 2020 area. Where would I get my hands on one of these things? I’ve surfed the web extensively with no luck on retail sites, and no Tackleshops near me have them. Thanks!
  5. A few penn reels in very good condition. penn 113H $65 shipped penn jigmaster 501 $45 shipped and a penn 650SSM $50 shipped
  6. I'm having issues with the drag on my Fathom II 15SD. When I tighten it down all the way, I can still easily pull the line out, probably no more than 5 lbs of drag. I've got it set up to the heaviest drag option. Looking at the schematic, it appears that everything is there and in the correct location. I took it to a local guy yesterday who services a lot of reels (not this model specifically) but he had no luck. I've had the reel for about 6 months and I've done some casting with it, but haven't fished with it yet. To be honest I'm not sure if I ever checked the drag to see if it would tighten all the way down. What actually puts tension on the drag washers? It appears Part 9 Spacer Sleeve interlocks with Part 7H Heavy Metal Drag Washer as you spin the dial. But the Spacer Sleeve doesn't slide in and out to adjust the pressure on the drag washers, as it's locked in with pins? Does the raised section of the heavy metal drag washer face up or down onto the drag washers (I've tried both ways)? The orientation of the spring washers (Part 8) appear to be correct as well, but I've tried different ways. Here are some photos of what I have and the schematic. I'm sure it's something I'm doing/not doing or something I'm missing, but I'm lost. Any ideas or suggestions?

  9. Does anyone have a hack or go to to “time” these reels? I’m well versed in the washer under the handle, but any tinkerers here have other solutions? By timing, I mean spool out, handle back.

  12. Hello Gentlemen! (And ladies) I'm looking for some info on the old Penn Slammer 760L live liner. Back then I was still using my trusted 710's, 712's, 704's, and 706's. It would be another 15 years after the introduction of the 760L before I begrudgingly purchased my first live liners/baitrunners. I'm intimately familiar with the Fierce II 2500, 4500 and 6500, Somewhat familiar with the baitrunner D and Spinfisher V and VI but never had my hands on a 760L. I know the size/weight/feel of the 460L and 540 but here's my question. How big is the 760L? Is it roughly in the size/class with the Fierce II 6500, Spinfisher LL 6500 and 704 type real size or is it much, much larger as in comparable with an 8500 Spinfisher V/VI LL? Thanks in advance folks! -Ry
  13. I have a Penn 8500SS in very good condition that I really don't use very much, maybe once a year for the past few years . I 'inherited' it from my father-in-law who I don't think used ever if at all. If I keep the reel I would consider getting it serviced based on its age and the certainty that it has never been serviced. I think I saw that Penn no longer services this model. Does anyone know if Penn does or if they have an upgrade program? If not, how about recommendations for shops in Suffolk County, NY where I could get a servicing/tune-up done? Not sure how much I'd use the reel but even as well as it seems to be functionning, I would like to be sure lubrication, seals, drag washers, etc. are refreshed. Thanks.
  14. 120$ shipped spooled with 20# super slick, includes original plus upgraded handle
  15. Brand new unused Penn 706z. $200 to your door (FREE shipping, US ONLY).
  16. Serial number H090001 this serial number seems unique to me. if it is can some one explain
  17. I know that the spinfisher VI’s are outclassed by the Slammer III but with the new improvements in sealing and smoothness (as advertised at least) in the Spinfisher VI, was wondering if anybody has fished with both and has an opinion on how they match up. Just a week ago Slammer III’s could be had at the same price or less than the new spinfisher, still kicking myself for not picking one up. I suppose the SSVI has the advantage of bailless and long casting models being available, but just how much better are the Slammers?
  18. Up for grabs is a very nice condition Penn Slammer 260 It has some very minor cosmetic flaws from light use and being stored in a tote with other reels It has one very small scuff on the bottom of the spool The mechanical condition is awesome and operates perfectly! Full Disclosure: It is not marked USA and has a number engraved in the foot and was told it was from a series of test reels from Penn. Not sure how true that is anymore, but offering here it for sale. $85 shipped, tracked and insured Another member saw this listed in another thread and asked to start a new one! As always thanks to Tim and the SOL community EA
  19. Long story short, I used to fish a ton as a child and then work/career took me to places where there it wasn't very feasible to fish so it kind of disappeared from my life. Whenever I visited family, I'd be sure to grab my old gear but found that I had a number of my rods snap on me as it seems they just had shelf lives which made them brittle over time so I'm very hesitant about using rods that are over 20 years old now as a result. These were fairly low budget freshwater rods so that may have played a factor. I am in possession of over a dozen of my grandfather's saltwater fishing rods. They are mostly conventional Penn rods with a few spinning rods with Mitchell reels in the mix. I haven't researched them yet, but these have been around since I was a kid so they are at least as old as the 1980s & am guessing most circa the 1960s (but there could be some older ones mixed in there). Rods were mostly used with surf casting or fishing from the boats for stripers and blues in mind. There is a pretty heavy duty one with and mount for fighting belt in the butt and rollers on the eyes that he may have taken out deep for cod and/or tuna. I have no doubt that with some servicing the reels could be brought to working order but will the rods still be useful? I think they have a great aesthetic so happy to continue keeping them up on the wall as decorations but part of me really wants to get them out in the field again. I'm having PTSD from snapping 2-3 of my cheap freshwater rods but I'm thinking that these were built with a higher level of quality which means they won't become fragile and brittle with age like the cheap freshwater stuff I used as a kid. What you guys think, will the rods hold up or are they purely decorative at this point?
  20. Looking for recs for a decent boat/kayak rod, not too heavy, in the 6-7 foot range, MH to H power, fast action (though moderate might not be bad either), to pair with an old Penn Special Senator 112H. I found an old US made one in really good condition at a local fishing expo and couldn't pass it up, super smooth given the age, clicker works fine. Any rod recs below $150 would be appreciated, and any other recs for spooling it too. I'm thinking about 50-75 yards of 30-40lb mono backing with 30-40lb braid on top? Thanks everyone.
  21. FS, Penn Spinfisher VI 4500, pretty much as new. Not a mark on it, No jetty drop, no dunk. All Penn 'as greased from the factory" still present. Drag knob still suctioned on with factory grease. Includes everything when bought. Box, shims, papers. $150.00 Includes USPS Priority Mail shipping for East Coast.
  22. Hi there, yesterday I bought this new Penn Squall II Strad Drag 25N. By getting it out of the box and trying it, I am hearing this noise, probably from gears. When the spool is freely rotated there is not any noise, however when reeling the noise is there, together with a dry-hard feeling. Is it normal or should I ask for an exchange? The is never been used before. See the video here https://drive.google.com/file/d/1REzc4p3TS2z2oLbcEb71NRu5QDLAsiP3/view?usp=sharing Thanks!
  23. Does anyone have the new slammer 4 5500 bailess? There is next to nothing online about it besides a J&H tackle product vid. Seems odd there isn’t any info on it anywhere.
  24. Have a Penn slammer 3 for sale, used it for 1 season, never dunked and always rinsed. Just cleaned and re greased this winter. Mechanically 9 out of 10, aesthetically 8.5 out of 10. Asking 150$ shipped or best reasonable offer. Also can meet locally in MA,
  25. Hello, I joined the club of Kayak anglers a few months ago. I fish in Mauritius, inside and outside lagoon, where the weather allows us to fish all year round I got a UltraLight Rod and Shimano Stradic FL 3000 which quickly become my main Rod. It's a bit small, but so light that It's super confortable to fish with all day long. However it's small when I cross the reef. I also have a Spinfisher 3500 on a medium heavy rod. I find it super heavy. Especially comparing it to other reels on the same size (daiwa BG RR 4000, A Stradic FL4000 for exemple). And even the drag is less than the Daiwa and Shimano. If i was fishing standing on a boat maybe it'd be better, but sitting in this kayak I don't find it great. Do you find the weight of this reel justified? I'm considering selling it but I never caught anything huge on it. (Biggest yet was a small 9lbs tuna on the UL set up) Thanks!
