    a few of us have bought penn spinfisher lc''s we're happy with them so far, good casting reels and strong too.

    Far better give the extra £30 get a shimano ultegra 14000 with an extra spool glasgow angling £180 I've had the same shimano 1000 since 1998 still going strong

    Shimano ultegra 14000 gets my vote. Lays braid down evenly and a smooth cast

    I love my shimano aerlex 8000, so much so that when I ran over my old one in the car I replaced it. The main body, spool and bail arm are all fine despite the run in with the meriva :)

    The options are enormous...

    Cliffs = Fin Nor OS 95
    Heavy ground rock ledges etc = Shimano Super Ultegra 10000
    Clean ground= Penn affinity 8000 (the line lay is awesome but the reel is not up to the job of anything heavier than clean ground)
    I ve got a Penn Battle also but the line lay is shocking and the bail flies closed in the cast unless the handle is set to the back, terrible design fault.

    If u can find the penn battle 8000 u won't go wrong. Think they are not being made anymore but still some out there on the net

    They have just brought the penn battle 2 out I know they have changed a few things I wonder if they have sorted the problem out with the handle

    the penn conflict looks a nice reel
    but my vote for deffo is the ultegra or biomaster(new version)

    Think it all depends if your using braid or mono, Mono will work on anything braid u need to get a decent line lay, slow osc and a long coned spool. Penn affinity, surfblaster same reels diff specs. No good for the rough stuff, great casting reels for braid. Minimum wind knots if u load them tight. :) :p

    Is there much difference in the shimano 10000 and 14000,anyone know,cheers

    The difference is the spool capacity. The bodies are the same and the spools can be used interchangeably.

    The 14000 s have a massive capacity Bill, probably too much for for what we need, you would probably have to use a lot of backing which isnt ideal

    The 10000 size spools take about 300 yards of 60lb power pro :)

    The 6000 size spools are not deep enough for rock work though and hold around 300 yards of 30lb power pro so ideal for beach work :)

    They are all interchangeable though :)

    Thanks boys,I think 300 yards may just be enough for me lol
