Tarpon and bull shark tested

I'm a charter Capt, lifelong guide now semi-retired. I've used every major brand of reel in a long career. The FFP reels I use are my favorite and I'm eventually replacing everything I own with them. This summer I got to try out the 6000 Resolute on our Winyah Bay Tarpon and oversized bull sharks. I personally caught tarpon over 100 lbs. Super smooth drag. Bull sharks unintentionally hooked fishing for tarpon up to several hundred lbs. Clients were blown away a reel so light didn't fade on 200 yd runs. One big bull even gave us a rare complete out of the water jump. I estimated it at 250 lbs. It takes a lot to impress me with fishing equipment. I am impressed with the FFP line of reels I use from speckled trout size to big tarpon reels.

Another great reel from FFP

Nice heavy duty reel for my saltwater adventures

Brad Foxwell

Affordable and Stout. More drag than others in its class. Smooth and reliable are an understatement

CAPT. Michael Merritt
Awesome reels!

I received the new Resolute reels and absolutely love them. I am also excited to try the new Salos Spinning Reels. Thanks for a great product.

Best reel I’ve owned

Capt Scott Flesch
Resolute 3K,4K,6K & 8K hard at work at FCWIS

Fishing Clearwater Inshore has made the switch over to the FFP Resolute reels for our inshore charters. The 3K's & 4K's have been great for Snook, Trout & Redfish (Inshore Slam) and the 6K & 8K have been great for inshore dock grouper, Tarpon and Shark. Durability and Performance is what we were looking for and so far...they have been GREAT!

Great reel smooth drag whipped a 40 lb black drum with ease

Bill Tollett
Resolute 5000

I decided to purchase my reel because I wanted to continue to support local businesses along with a desire have a quality product. I have had several Stradic 3000 and 4000 reels over the years and was very pleased with the quality and workmanship, however I have had issues with durability and longevity. Although my purchase is fairly recent, I can’t be more impressed with the workmanship and how smooth this reel is when battling the inshore species I target such as snook and redfish with live bait.I find that my casting has improved and the reel is extremely smooth when applying pressure during the battle. Go get yours and you will not be disappointed.

6000 Resolute

Have 3 of these and can not be happier. I went through a ton of penn reels and was tired of returning them and changing the line. I have used these offshore for big amberjack, tuna, grouper, snapper and inshore for tarpon and big snook. I haven’t had one issue. I love the weight and the size compared to others. I live in swfl and the order was correct and at my house within a couple days. Very impressed with company and product.

Great reel from a great company

I run a charter business in St. Augustine, FL. I use FFP for all my spinning reel needs. My clients fish them hard and they have never let me down. Also the best customer service anywhere! I highly recommend.
