After tons of research, this is the best live liner for the money. Went with the 4000LL and could not be happier. On my 3rd year now and still feels great. Not new, but great. The price range allows you to purchase another if necessary. This reel has handled multiple 20-30" red drum.
ProsLive Line. Gears. Size
ConsDrag could be heavier

First time using a Live Liner
This is part of my first serious surf fishing rig. I couldn't be happier. Great casts & smooth retrieve. The coolest thing is the live liner feature. It's easy to set, and gives you a great way to give the fish a little time to run before realizing he's being followed.
ProsLive liner feature. High quality construction.

Penn is Fierce
I have been using this reel for about a year it on the ocean or back up in the river. Cats or sharks this reel is killing it. I mainly use it on my kayak with a short 6 ft rod. This thing is absolutely great!!! and the live liner feature is great if I am playing on the bottom and waiting lol
ProsLive Liner Very smooth built for Braid
ConsI do not have more!

Penn FRCll 4000LL
The reel is just what we were look for to replace some older competitor bait feeder reels
ProsI like the rubberized stripe so you can tie braid direct to reel

Fierce works well
Fierce works well but I like Spinfisher better. Fierce seems to jam the bail every now and then. It's still a good reel and the bail nuances happen with every reel but just prefer my Spinfisher. However, for the price, Fierce is a great deal and I'd buy it again.

Strong product
This item works well for me as a mahi and tuna reel for the weed lines. Whether winding in a circle hook and bait or a casting lure it is very versatile.

Best Baitrunner Available
This Penn real is awesome. I've been using bait runner reels for Walleye and Bass fishing for many years. When the Walleye are hitting light, the baitrunner feature is perfect. And, this is the only decent baitrunner left on the market that's sized right for this fresh-water fishing. The quality of Penn Reels is outstanding. I have three of these in my arsenal! If you buy one, you won't be disappointed!
ProsBaitrunner or as they call it "Live Line" feature really helps catch fish when properly used. The size is perfect for fresh water fishing. Very smooth working reel! Great Price!!!!!!
ConsNone that I'm aware of

Penn fierce II 6000 LL. Great reel!
Bought FRCII6000LL after reading reviews for all the Penn spinning reels. People comparing it to clash but heavier. I paired it with It with Shakespeare Ugly Stik Tiger Rods 7' 20-50lbs medium. Perfect combo!! Took out this past week in the keys. I balloon drift fished a live ballyhoo with the live line switch on. Took line on waves action on boat. Good news was it worked perfectly allowing the ballyhoo to take line freely. Bad news was I caught 5 barracudas. The reel owned them really good. I then switched to yellowtailing on this rod and it was perfect. This reel and rod combo allowed me to rip the yellowtail in before losing it to the man in the grey suit.
ProsHandle size is perfect Handles everything your throw at it Got soaked in salt water from rough seas but still smooth

Lighter Live Line drag
I bought this item after great reviews on other tackle distributor websites. Tackle Direct had the best price of any body including the manufacture's. So i thought I'd buy it. Great shipping and customer service. The reel has a smooth retrieve and they bail closes nicely with the turn of the handle. The only thing that I wish would have been better was the lightness of the live line drag. I turned it to the lightest setting and found hat it was still not as light as I thought it should be in the 2500 series model. I have two 4000 series in the Baitrunner and they both have lighter live line drags. Thats the only reason I didn't give the reel 5 stars.

Looks like Penn quality is back!
Vey smooth with little wobble. Live liner feature will save rods used by "dead pole" guests. That is if I let them use it.

I started fishing a long time ago with an old baitcaster, no magnets, no anti-reverse, but it had a bait clicker. Zebco 202 was very new, mono line and cast forever with no backlash, and a bait clicker.Finally a spinning reel that casts great and has an adjustable line release to let live bait roam, and biting fish run so you can pick up the rod and slam home the hook! Might be an old thing, but it's sure new in this part of Arizona, and very welcome.
