    I am looking for a spinning reel for foamer fishing. I had a Saragosa 20000 with 80lb but it was a little big. I see Penn Slammer 4 is out or a Slammer 3 is what I am looking at, the smallest model with the appropriate line capacity to fill with 80 spectra and heavy top shot.

    Probably the smallest size Slammer IV to fish 80 on would be the 7500, which is 28 ounces.
    Line capacity will depend on line brand and personal preference on fill-up level, but somewhere in the neighborhood of 300-325 yards, or possibly a bit more with one of the "thin" brands.
