i have the penn spinfisher v 10500 .. its a beast of a spinner reel with 40lbs of drag. just got to find a better pole to run it off of now. but i think its a great reel if you are trying to decide between spinner and level-wind ..

Yup got 2 of them for the season with 65 lb power pro slick and matched with 2 heavy Penn Blue Water Carnage rods, havent gotten to use them yet but they feel as sturdy as my other conventional set ups. I plan on doing a review at the end of this season.

The drag system and gear housing on the PENN  Spinfisher V are sealed with gaskets, should work well for kayak fishing as long as the gaskets no fail.  Roy's got them on sale right now!  The 10500 is a beast of a reel, how we'll do the reel seats on the blue carnage rods accommodate the 10500 reel?  I picked up a 8500 at Roy's and paired it with a ugly stik one piece 7 foot heavy big water spinning pole from sports authority!  Those carnage rods look solid!

The reel seats I have are strong. It should hold up fine. they are all metal all the way around one piece, check out the specs on it here:

Where did you get your rods from?  Does POP sell them?

The reel seat on my blue water Carnage handles 100 plus pound ahi's like a champ with no problems!!! Compared to my Penn Internaitional stand-up V rod and Penn Mariner rod, The blue water Carnage rod was the best rod to battle 100# ahi's on! Super strong to boost and turn heads but flexible enough to absorb the strong pulses from an ahi. Both ahi's caught with the Carnage rod felt alot easier to boost and battle fish on!

Do you run spinners with your carnage rods or conventionals?  Looks like they make carnage rods for spinners and conventional reels.  Seems like most run conventional reels.  Roy said that rocket and the rest of the penn team use/have the new penn spinfisher V reels, so far he said none of the reels have come back to him since they started selling em.

My 8500 should be waiting for me at the post office today.  Pairing it with an Ugly Stik Tiger Lite 80-130# jigging rod and 65# braid.

Any updated reviews on the 10500 reel?  Was really looking to buy one and pair it with the carnage rod. What is a good size braided line to use? Cheapest place on Oahu to buyem?

1st season report: Not sure? ::)   lol   Only got out on the water a hand full of times last season and was not able to get into any fish that could really test the reel. The reels are very strong and smooth so far. Pulled in a 2-3# papio like a 1000# winch pulling an rc car. They feel extremely sturdy like the older spinfisher models and the blue carnage rods are beast. I promise to get into some good ones this season and get a more thorough review for you guys.

I've had the penn 10500 for several months now.  Haven't used it on the kayak but I have fished it weekly from shore.  Its sealed but not 100% water proof.  It'll lock down and pull up fish up cliffs with no problem.  I'm running it with straight 50# mono, holds about 250 yards.

Biggest ulua I've caught on it so far has been 20#, pulled up a 30' cliff, reel was smooth and felt solid cranking it.  The retrieve is around 40" per crank, drag is pretty smooth and uses the ht100's, no complaints on it. 
The reel is built like a tank, my goal is to land a 50+ ulua on it. The black paint on mine came off pretty easy near the reel seat, no corrosion so far but I rinse after every use and spray it with an anti corrosion spray.   
Prices are pretty reasonable now, I got one off of Amazon for $156 shipped and recently another locally for $160.  I think on the kayak this reel could replace most of my level winds.
HOW much is that to ship to Hawaii!!!???

I don't think you'll be disappointed by them, other than the paint issue these are worth it.
