The PENN Slammer III is back by popular demand. Built for heavy duty fishing from either boat or shore, and trusted by charter captains all over the world. The Slammer III reels feature our new IP67 Sealed System which keeps water out of the gear box and drag system. We're also using our updated Slammer Drag System which now utilizes our proprietary Dura Drag material.
I'm a shark fisherman from St Simons Island Ga. I bought the 10500 both to float off the pier and use in the surf for black tips. I hooked up to and landed a 125lb 52in ray and let me tell you.... this reel slayed this ray. I have it paired with an 11' star rod and 600yards of 80lb braid. The fight lasted all of 8 min. The amount of drag this reel produces is unbelievable.... it's so smooth. If you're looking for a reasonably priced reel that will handle big fish I recommend the Slammer III.
Great for fighting big fish a bit tight when you first use it but fight 1 or two that use the drag and its smooth as butter
The drag on this reel seems smooth and durable but doesn't work well for how I fish. I like to set my drag light and wait to lock them down after the first run when I get the rod in my hands. Wide open the drag is still close to 10lbs I'd guess.
Super smooth drag system. Performs as well or better than my other reels that cost twice as much. The slammer 3 is a little heavier though.
I am ready to try out this reel off the coast of Washington.
Smooth as silk with all the power and more you would expect
Smooth and quite a heavy duty
Havent put it to heavy use yet but feels buttery smooth!
Encore un bon moulinet penn, juste un peu lourd mais au moins on sait qu'on peut aller au charbon avec !
