Penn Slammer 3 III 6500 $175 shipped amazon or $140 with AMEX
Get it now for $175, or $140 if you have 20% AMEX. This should be the upgraded version with 7+1 bearings even though the link says otherwise. A lot of reel for the money! It is on the heavier side, perfect if you wade fishing or jigging, but not too good if you put it aside on a sand spike etc. I have one and love it!
