Default Penn Captiva Reel

Is any body using the Penn captiva reel or the Penn captiva live liner reel?

If you are what do you have to say about them good and bad? I am thinking of buying one.
the rod I want to match up the captiva to is a M action ugly stick tiger 7' 2 pice.


thanks
Matt

Got the Penn 9500ss, the Penn 8500ss, the Penn Slammer 560....and various ancient Penn Conventional surfcasting reels , but no Captiva, kind of interested in the response now.

I'm a Penn dude but, and my wife is gonna kill me, but, gonna get me a Vanstal for next season.

I dont think Matt wants spend the loot for one of those Penn's. I'd suggest a Z series Penn, but I think the Captiva will be good to start out with. Once you start gettin good at findin the fish and really get into it, a better reel will be needed :)

lol. I have a Penn Captiva live liner I use as a "utility" reel. Its smooth with all those bearings, but for some reason, I just do not like the way the drag feels.

But if someone is just starting out, I would say it is a good reel. It wont fall apart in your hand like some of the stuff out there lol.
