I'm sure the bigger reels are even more durable then the smaller series....I have a 260 slammer and it is by far the most solid spinner I own. Most of the shimanos or daiwas even come close. I've owned the stadics, whiskers and BG's for years. The BG's are the only ones, IMHO, that even come close.:huh: Just wanted to get some input on the new slammer reels the 560l and the 760l particularly. Are they relible, durable, braid friendly?Thanks
New? Have they been redesigned? Am I missing something?:huh: ... new slammer reels the 560l and the 760l particularly...
I was thinking the same thing but thought maybe I missed something.New? Have they been redesigned? Am I missing something?
The only "new" one is the 760L, which was released about a year ago, if I remember correctly.New? Have they been redesigned? Am I missing something?
I have a 460L made in USA- am I missing something here?:huh:The only "new" one is the 760L, which was released about a year ago, if I remember correctly.
There are actually two different models of Slammer spinning reels. The regular version (260, 360, 460, 560 and 760) is what you want for plugging. The Slammer Live Liners (there are two modeels, 560L and 760L) have, as you might have guessed, a freespool / baitrunner feature that the regular series does not have. The Live Liners are good bait reels, but if the type of fishing that you doesn't need freespool, then get the regular version: it's cheaper, and it's also lighter.
Both the regular and live liners are good reels, though. I have three regulars and one live liner, and they're all solid.
Oops, looks like I left something out: Penn stlil makes, and sells, the 460L liveliner. I thought it had been discontinued.I have a 460L made in USA- am I missing something here?:huh:
