PENN Spinfisher VI Long Cast Spinning is rated out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pompano Brownie from Bulletproof and no Backlash like Conventional’s When I’m Pompano fishing I can’t afford to miss fish due to a backlash on a conventional reel. My Penn 7500LC gets the job done!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sleepster from Rugged, durable, an absolute workhorse! I own both the SSVI6500 and the SSVI6500LC and I've been very impressed. It's well built and extremely durable. The HT-100 carbon drag system is smooth under heavy loads. The rotor spins smoothly with little resistance for a reel that has plenty of seals to keep water out. It's water-resistant rated IPX5 which means it can take dunks and splashes like a champ. The SSVI6500LC its a bit larger than the SSVI6500 to make room for the taller long cast spool and is slightly heavier. I don't why Penn designed the SSVI6500LC with a plastic clicker gear. Everyone knows plastic clickers will eventually get shredded when big game fish goes on prolonged runs. The standard SSVI6500 has a metal clicker and has a loud metallic "Ting-ting-ting" sound which its very audible and helpful when targeting trophy fish during windy conditions or on a boat while the motor is running.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CESAR NAVY from BATTLE READY I bought my 6500LC in early spring 2019 and paired it with 12 foot tsunami II, Well, its really a LONG CAST, I caught a lot of big blue fish and stripe bass. Love it!!. The only thing that I do not like was the design of the spool drag very difficult to removed the spool, the handle knob was too shallow to hold on to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Budman64 from Awesome cast distance Picked up a 7500 for surf fishing. Loaded it with 30lbs braid. Will cast a bait a country mile. Way further than my regular 8500.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Andy Martin from LC spool makes a noticeable difference I've got the 5500 paired up to an Okuma Nomad 10 ft travel surf rod and spooled with 20 lb braid. Casting distance is impressive: I can get to the big perch, croakers, rays, and leopards 80 to 100 yards out with a 4 oz sinker. Drag and retrieval power are good. This is one of my two favorite surf rigs - the other is the Fathom 25N on an 11 ft rod.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rich50 from Outstanding saltwater reels! I own 8 Penn reels and do all my fishing out of Corpus Christi, Tx. I purchased this reel, as I wanted to try the long cast spool. The reel is a solid build and has a smooth wind and it took under a week to receive it from the day I ordered. This reel will be my primary lure casting reel, as I use my Penn Torque 2 for bait. The only thing that could make this reel better, is if it had and auto bail, instead of manual. As for fishing line, I strictly use Power Pro Maxquatro.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TraceTidwell from Why no combo? My only complaint is that I had to buy the reel separate because there was no combo. I wanted to get a good surf combo and all I could find was the Penn 6500 on a 10ft rod. The should be the reel included on the surf combo not the standard 6500, I would think that should be very obvious.
