PENN Spinfisher VI Live Liner Spinning is rated out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Snuggy from 8500 LL everyone is jealous I first moved to Florida in May. I have the Tsunsmi Shield, Diawa BG, and this spinfisher LL 8500. This one is my favorite out of the bunch. Super Solid (look how beefy the bail is on these) and spools line perfectly. The live liner feature is a total game changer for me, and I cant reccomend it enough if you are using live bait. This reel has also survived quite a torture camp from me this year, and I couldn't be happier. Multiple monsters have been pulled in by this thing already- this reel will help you catch bigger fish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ReelLove from Smooth, powerful, great Baitrunner alternative I purchased the 8500LL because the Shimano 6500 Baitrunner was no longer in production and the new 1200D did not seem competitive with the 8500. Out of the box the 8500 felt better. It's all metal, no plastic. The drag is smoother, and the reel just feels better. Line capacity is greater (440 vs 265 yds) as is max drag (35 vs 25 lbs). I use this reel in Miami to live bait for everything from Tarpon, Mahi, to bottom fishing for Snapper. 1 complaint which I believe Penn has fixed: salt water has a way of getting into the reel affecting the LL lever/mechanism. Penn fixed for free (Hooray Penn!) and within a month I was back in service. (hence the 4 and not 5 stars) If you have not fished with a LL/Baitrunner, DO IT! All of my 15 lb spinning tackle and above have this feature. It catches more fish, and there is no issue with backlashes. Once you use a LL reel, you will not go back to conventional spinning reels. It has been a great reel and I will buy more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Walshjf3 from I own three of the 6500LL I own 3 of the 6500LL I've fished them in salt and fresh water and like everything about them. The drag is smooth and they never surprise you with bad surprises. The only negative is that the clicker could be louder. The Live Liner feature made me buy this and it adds another great way to catch fish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ricemanwm from Great for surf fishing I’m using the Spinfisher VI Live Liner 6500 with the Penn Battalion 11 foot surf pole. This works perfectly at the beach for surf fishing. Set the live liner and put the rod in the sand spike. No more worries of a ray or shark ripping the pole out of the sand spike and taking it out to sea. When you get a strike, start reeling and the live liner clicks off and you have your normal drag. No more fumbling with the drag while fighting a fish. Just don’t forget to set the live liner before leaving it in the sand spike or you might be chasing this expensive reel into the surf.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Captpetrucco from best reel on the market After 30 plus years of charter fishing in the Florida Keys, this is the best spinning reel ever. The live line feature makes this as effective as a lever drag conventional and a spinner. It’s the best of both worlds. Excellent kite reel and awesome live bait or trolling reel. The live line feature is also awesome for managing fish at boat side or in the fish box. No more accidental broken rod tips...

Rated 5 out of 5 by otto from I love to live bait fish! I got the 4500 for bass fishing and I love it. It's EZ to set up. I mainly fresh water fish and this is my favorite reel. I plan on getting 3 more of the 6500 for my catfish rods. I know I won't regret it. If you like mess with the drag this reel is a must have.
