    Authority 8500HS

    What is the actual stopping power of this spool? The data sheet says 50lb / 22,6 kg. On the spool drum and in all the photos it is 40lb / 18,1 kg. I bought one and the drum actually says 40lb / 18,1 kg. I have two 4500s and a 7500 with the correct specs.

    Putting the Authority to the test

    Exceptional reel! I fish approximately 200 days a year with customers exclusively in salt water. From casting lures to live bait Penn Authority is built to take a beating. Bull Redfish will test the limits of any reel especially if you do it day in day out. The drag on the Authority is super smooth and my customers speak highly of them.

    Tuna fishing

    Light and strong reel, thanks to the high speed it is very versatile, fish for Tuna with it, sometimes you need a quick retrieve and sometimes a slow one. excellent reel.

    Love This Reel

    This is an exceptionally smooth reel with awesome drag capability. Was hesitant at first due to cost and some questionable reviews. I purchased an Authority 5500 for my surf rod. Loved it so much I purchased a second one a few weeks later. Outperforms my 6500/5500 Spinfisher reels, which was a tall order to accomplish.
