Fished out of Hatteras this past weekend and good friend JC (asian FHB) was using a Penn 750ss and she held up fine. I'm thinking about getting a Slammer 760 based on my experience with my Penn Live Liner 460. I find those reels are awesome and should out perform the ss. What do you think. Additionally it seemed as if one could get a better/faster rhythm with the spinning reel.
