Looking to pick up a pair of new Penn Fierce series model 6000's. Anybody have any experience with these?

For spinning I like the Cabela's Salt Striker:

However....I really don't like spinning reels because they take up so much space in the boat.

No experience with that model, but I have the Penn Liveliner (2 of them) and it's been solid for 10+ years.

I don't own a boat, so that won't be an issue; strictly a bank fisher. Max cast is 30-50ft on 30lb braid with live bait and a 1.25-1.5oz sinker. No biggie.

Water Judge, Penn Fierce are the only spinning reels I sell because I like them so much. Very well built, most of my customers are down here in South Texas, they like to fish the lakes and the coast. They want a reel that can do both.
I am slowing replacing my personal spinning rigs with Penn Fierce as well.

I've used the 6000 for over a year now,hauled in several big blues with no problems.
