Slammer 3, been using one on my 9'6 Airwave for 2 years and it is indestructible. I had it under water , slammed off rocks , pulling in fish at the canal, It's by far my favorite reel.

Why would you choose the slammer 3? Isn't the 4 supposed to be a lot better? I thought they improved the seals somewhere?

I agree.  No reason for the SLM3 unless it gets blown out deep discounted.  With the way stock and inflation is going doubt we will be seeing those kind of deals for a long time.


The SLM4 is only tweaked/updated not a redesign.  A seal, a bearing with a nip-n-tuck on the rotor.  For the DX double up on the bearing a b d change gear alloy. Paint job.
