Live Liner system for hassle-free live bait fishing
Oversized, shielded HT-100 drag washers
5 shielded stainless steel ball bearings (760L has six bearings)
Inshore anglers who love to use live bait will certainly want to get their hands on the latest addition to Penn's popular Slammer series reels, the Slammer Live Liner. In addition to having the same top-quality features as the original Slammer series reels, the Slammer Live Liner Reels feature a secondary rear drag and automatic engaging live-lining trip. This allows anglers to rapidly move from the live bait rear drag to the oversized and powerful front fighting drag with a simple spin of the handle. Plus, the Slammer Live Liner Reels are complete with oversized, shielded HT-100 drag washers for smooth, consistent and dependable drag performance; five shielded stainless steel ball bearings (760L has six bearings); infinite anti-reverse; Techno-balanced™ rotor eliminates rotor wobble and improves performance; Penn Leveline® wrap system provides consistent line lay regardless of retrieve speed or type of line; machined, anodized aluminum handle with soft touch knob.

Of the three live liner style reels I've tried, I only kept the Penn. Awesome reel (560L). Definitely tops for baitfishing, and I love that you can easily yank out one part to eliminate the auto-trip feature (I'd rather trip the drag manually). My only complaint is that the live liner knob in the back easily crusts after being dunked (if you forget to hose it down), and you can't adjust it until you clean it out well. That, and the reel is more of a pain to tear down in general than a regular Slammer due to the additional parts.

i have had a shimano bait runner for over seven years and is in great working condition and have owned a penn live liner for about 6 and purchased the new one recently the bait runner still works fine and same with the Penn. For fishing of a boat i would buy a Penn slammer live liner but off the surf i would buy a Bait runner because it has water proof drag. They compare similar but the Penn live liner has more fighting power than the bait runner.
to be honest i would stick with the shimano cuz you have a better drag system on the shimano but i think the penn will last longer it just matters on what your fishing for if it is a fish that will some the penn i would deff go with the shimano
