I know this. I saw my first one last Saturday at the Saltwater Seminar in New Bern. I held it in my hand, felt the balance, played with the liveliner switch, and have wanted one desperately ever since!!!....LOL!!!!

I love the song the reel sings when there is a fish on. One of my buddies even does a dance when his starts.

I have the Shimano bait-runner 4500 and the Okuma Epixer eb50 and 80 and like them. But I saw these Penn's a couple of years ago and wanted one ever since, found them on-line for 120.00 no tax and free ship, called to order but on back order till next week.

I like my Shimano live liner. I haven't tried the Slammer live liner but I had the SS version and it lasted less than a year......... Had problems with a few other "newer" Penn models too. So now the only Penn stuff I use is the Senators. I have heard they improved the quality some when they made the slammers but now that I switched to Shimanos and Quantums, I have no reason to switch back.
