View Full Version : Penn Slammer 560 Help

I bought a 560 Slammer this winter and so far it has been a great reel. Last weekend though I noticed a wobble and vibration so I took it apart and greased it up. Fished this morning the wobble is still there. Can anyone give me some advice as to what the problem might be?

Did you check the nut that holds the rotor and shaft to the reel body? Sometimes they can work loose.

Yes it is nice and tight.

Don't have the answer, wish I did... one of mine did something similar after I cleaned it and lubed it. took it back apart, found nothing... put back together... no wobble, figgered it was some kind of alignment issue, as I had hauled it apart :huh:
I'll be interested if anyone comes up with this.. I'd like to know too!
I have no gripes with the slammer, love it.
Hope you get rid of the wobble.

Does the 560 match up to a 9' St Croix Avid? I'm using a Stradic which is OK in the Sound or Shinny Canal. But it doesn't take kindly to splashes on south shore beaches. And my 704 is a little too heavy for it.

probably wanna go with a 460 on the 9
