Product Reviews

PENN® Slammer® III Spinning is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Penn is great company I bought a 3500 Penn Slammer 3. I used it a couple times but it began to seize up while reeling. I returned it to Penn and they sent me out a new Slammer 3. This one works great with no problems. I have a couple of 3500 Spinfisher Vs which are excellent reels but the Slammer 3 has an even more excellent line lay. I am looking forward to really putting it through it's paces this season and I am expecting it to be a super asset in my arsenal. BTW: I am a surf fishing "dood" and strictly fish artificials (read "lures") which tells you that these reels are constantly in use while fishing (no bait-n-wait for this dood).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite reel out of the 10 Penn Reels i own !! I have had this reel for about three months now. I have zero complaints about this reel. For starters the Slammer 3 is a sexy looking reel. The line lay is absolutely perfect on it. A very heavy duty solid reel! The drag is amazing and the smoothest out of all the Penn Reels i own. Even under heavy drags on 6500 the drag is smooth. There is no hesitation or stickyness. I have caught many big snook and have stopped 100lb Tarpon around bridges with this setup. For being a well sealed reel the smoothess is still there. Thank you Penn for producing another dynamite product !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slammer III strong & smooth Luckey enough to test out a new slammer reel offshore recently and was suprised at the power, drag capability and smoothness of this reel.Hooked up to a 40 lb gag grouper in 260 ft of water and this reel beat it down! no problem horsing it up from 260' . I believe it was on a Carnage rod, just a great combo. P.S., I own several 1200.00 spinning reels for yellowfin tuna and this reel made me wish I saved the cash and bought a few of these instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best so far!! I own a reputable reel repair shop in Florida. I am always buying reels to check out. I bought the new 6500 and it is a beast. The main reason for this excellent rating is the way that Penn has sealed the pinion and anti reverse clutch bearing. There are at least 3 seals above these parts. The reel is super smooth and very easy to reel. Its very well balanced and a joy to use all day long. Its a keeper for me and will be buying another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10500 is a beast Paired the 10500 with a 12' Penn carnage surf rod. Pulled in a well over 7' and over 200lbssand tiger shark with ease. Couldn't believe how well they both performed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable Reel This reel might be a little expensive but it was so worth it, I bought the 7500 size an it absolutely gets the fish to the boat. My first fish on it was a 150 tarpon it only took about 15 minutes to get it too the boat. Afterwards I looked it over just to check it, and nothing was wrong with it. I definitely recommend this reel to anybody who likes to catch monster fish!!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from honest i had this reel for almost a year. i have used this reel for everything from small tabies( small trevally under 1lb) up to dolphin (mahi mahi up too 25-30lb). i have a 4500 it had 20lb power pro for spining but i currently have 30lb spider wire. the only complaint i have is the drag is very hard for a 4500 reel although for me its not a big deal because i also use it to live bait the same tabbies for fun for barricuda when somtimes we hook wahoo. the reel is tuff and strong and can handle abuse. its defently worth the money, unless you are fishing for small fish where i think a fierce II is perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not for the weak or weary. I bought the 3500 model without even handling one first. Im a ultralight to medium avid fisherman, from perch to strippers. I live right by the Chesapeake Bay and fishing is a cast away from my house. So after receiving the reel i decided to purchase a new rod for this beast. I opted for a Berkley Lightning Shock rod 7'6" med light. Well i quickly learned that was a bad choice. I should of got a medium to medium heavy rod to handle the monster drag system. Even with the drag loose there is enough tention to hook and catch panfish. So anyone wanting to buy one of these sweet reels i recommend not to go light on your blank choice with this reel especially when using spectra pe braided lines.
