Techno-balanced rotor for extra smooth retrieves. Machined and anodized aluminum handle with soft touch knob. For 50 years the Penn Spinfisher has been the toughest spinning reel in the world.
For 2013 season Penn has incorporated breakthrough advancement in materials and technology and are ready to introduce their 5th generation - the Spinfisher V aka the SSV. A favorite for years, the newest edition of the classic is an instant hit winning ICAST's 2012 Best of Show in the Saltwater Reel Category The new line of Spinfisher V reels are ultimate workhorses built to withstand saltwater conditions and ready for big fish. The Spinfisher V is a versatile spinning reel that is great for surf fishing, live bait fishing (see Live Liner models) and jigging.Its full metal body and sideplates keep the gears precisely aligned even under heavy load with trophy class fish. For long term durability the Spinfisher V features a deep anodization to provide extra corrosion resistance. Penn has also redsigned the bail, so now the Spinfisher V features an oversized thicker and stronger heavy duty aluminum bail wire. The bail has a friction trip ramp in order to prevent premature bail trip when casting. For super smooth operation Spinfisher V reels have stainless steel main shafts as well as five shielded stainless steel bearings and one infinite anti-reverse one way roller bearing.
All of the Spinfisher V reels have 6 seals (9 seals on the Live Liner models) that keep the gearbox and drag clean and smooth. Spinfisher V reels have machined and anodized aluminum spools with Penn's unique "Braid Ready" Superline Spool and Line Capacity Rings features. There's no need for backing because the spool has a rubber gasket which keeps braided line secure. The very helpful Line Capacity Rings divide the spool into thirds for quick and easy line capacity readings. This eliminates the question of how much line you have left when fighting a fish and it also provides a benchmark when re-spooling.
For the smoothest drag under heavy pressure the Spinfisher V spool is stacked with only the best drag material - Penn's legendary HT-100 "wet" (greased) carbon fiber drag provides amazing drag capabilities. Extreme drag pressure, a wide range of adjustment and a large diameter drag knob so you can easily crank down to max drag. The Spinfisher V series has a sealed drag system with three 3 HT-100 drag washers (1 on the top of the spool, 2 large diameter washers underneath the spool). All HT-100 washers are greased for smoothness and longevity. The new Penn Spinfisher V has been improved upon and modernized but still kept it's roots in long term durability, functionality and most of all affordability.
The Spinfisher V still has the classic Penn "Black and Gold" look. The smaller sizes have enhanced gear ratios. Live Liner Drag reels for anglers using live bait are now available in 3 sizes (4500LL, 6500LL and 8500LL).2 30 yds / 10 L bs. 165 yds / 20 Lbs. 365 yds / 15 L bs. 200 yds / 30 Lbs.
