    Hey to all, I bought a Penn 8000 Fierce 2 LL about 18 months ago, a few days later a friend of mine did the same thing. In the last couple of months both reels seized up (on different outings) when we both had large snapper hooked. Lucky both times, we were able to handline the fish in. Has anyone had the same problem?

    G'day Glen, welcome to the funny farm.

    I've never had anything to do with the Fierce Live Liners, but my experience with other Penn reels like Spinfishers and Slammers has been trouble free. Penn have always had a good reputation as being solid reels with outstanding drag and reading the specs on the 8000 would indicate that the Fierce is no different. When you say that the reels seized, did you strip them down to find out what actually locked up? Was it the gearing or the drag?
