I am more incline to go with Shimano after all the bail problems I had with the Penn reels. The only reel that was reliable was my old Z reels that I always found too heavy. Anyway I got two Shimano baitrunners to fish with this coming season :smile:

i use my 4500 on an afaw 11' estuary...and i love it. ive also built a 9' lami mb108 3m that fished well with the 4500b and the 3500b.

Really sounds like you have a nice setup with that 11 and 9 footer. I have heard so many positive things about that AFAW rod and you must be grinning as an owner. Right now I am looking at the Lami Triflex stick or maybe try a Tsunami Airwave rod for fishing. I just want to get something not too expensive, because I am not all too sure if I will fish with those reels.
