If you are going to use the reel to even moderately the spinfisher is worth the money.

I would buy the Fierce 3.

I don’t know the gear composition on the new Penn live liners but I suspect it is std  Penn chinesium.

 I put major hours on a ssv6500 ll, it never failed me .

But,under load it was cranky,not pleasant.

Still,it was a reliable fishing reel and the live liner never failed me.

 

I don’t care about seals,imx6 etc in a live liner because By it’s design it is not going in the wash.

 

 I switched to Shimano Baitrunners a couple years ago,own 3.

Much smoother under load  and cast better. Not without issues though.

 

The Fierce 3 ,I suspect,uses the proven,original  ssv live liner system,in a very nice,streamlined package. Feels good in the hand. And,less than a C note.

Worth looking at imho.....

what size?  i bought the fierce2LL in 4000 and 6000 this year.  the 6000 uses the 5000 gears, and crank, so it's only a line capacity (and drag) increase, but not a gear size increase

 

I've not used the LL for actual fishing yet - just for feeding line for tying etc.

Seals also help to keep sand out. If it's going to be used in a boat, may be worth saving a few bucks. From shore, whether wading or not, I'd get the SSV. Much better reel.

 

I do have a few fierces as back ups for friends to use. They're good reels for their price, but if you fish often I'd upgrade a bit.

The Spinfisher has IPX5 sealing, and it has the CNC cut gears. The Fierce has no seals and uses a cheap zinc gear. Ya get what you pay for.
