I have a 4600 Liveliner and would like to know if there is a part that will enable it to auto-engage? I've heard on earlier models there was a clip or something that could be removed to disable the auto-engage.

Good morning.....Penn does have a upgrade for the live liner action which would make it trip automatically. It takes a few parts and a little time and you're good to go. If you wanted to send the reel to us to have the work done you would only be charged a small labor fee for the upgrade. Please forward the reel to the address below along with your contact information and a copy of this message.
Just want to report that I got my reel back from Penn. It was a 3 week turnaround for just under $30 for the conversion, full service, new bail arm and drag discs, and shipping. They even replaced the handle because the paint was peeling off, but I couldn't resist adding a gold anodized handle to "church it up" a bit, and it looks great. (Even though it almost doubled the bill.) Just in time to chase some monster blues with it off the beach.
Glad to know that you are happy and everything looks great. In regards to a rod check out the 8' Legion or Regiment rods. There is an 8' 8-15lb and 10-17lb rod in the Legion series and there is an 8' 8-15lb rod in the Regiment series. Both are great rods and would match perfectly with your 4600LL.
Glad you're happy with your conversion. Personally I prefer the manual engage, it prevents accidental tripping and allows me to wind in a little while disengaged when live-lining. Too bad Penn has followed the others and done away with this feature. Hope my old LL keeps on going forever!
