PENN Spinfisher V Reels

The new Spinfisher V includes several significant upgrades, making this the most advanced addition to your arsenal.

Water Tight Design - A total of 6 seals (9 seals on the live liner models) are used to create the new Water Tight Design used in the Spinfisher V. Whether you dunk the reel in the surf, or let it ride in the spray all the way home, you don’t have to worry about saltwater getting into the gearbox or drag system.

Slammer® Drag System - A truly sealed drag system with a total of 3 HT-100 drag washers (1 on the top of the spool, 2 underneath the spool). All HT-100 washers are greased for smoothness and longevity. Extreme range, endless adjustment, and a large diameter drag knob so you can easily crank down to max drag.

A full metal body and sideplate keep precise gear alignment under heavy loads.

Superline Spool™ - No backing needed because the rubber gasket keeps superline from slipping.

Line Capacity Rings -Eliminates the question of how much line you have left when fighting a fish. The three lines on the spool flange let you know when you have 1/3rd, 2/3rd or a full spool of line. Also if you respool often these lines five you a benchmark for backing your superlines with monofilament which will help eliminate wasted time and line.

Live Liner® Drag - Are you a serious live bait fisherman? The Live Liner drag was built for fishing live bait. Simply pull the switch back and the front drag disengages and runs off the Live Liner drag. The Live Liner drag is a much lighter drag that lets your live bait swim free. When you get bit, simply start cranking the handle and the Live Liner drag disengages, the front drag engages, and your tight on your fish.

  • New thicker heavy duty aluminum bail wire adds strength and durability
  • 5 Shielded stainless steel bearing system
  • Infinite anti-reverse (back up ratchet on 7500-10500 sizes
  • Friction trip ramp prevents premature bail trip when casting

      Great reel. Doesn't feel cheap like most reels I've used. Its was between this and the Shimano Baitrunner 8000D and this was definitely the right selection so far. Great quality, cant go wrong with a Penn. (Unless you're the kind of person who gets upset that everything is made in China. News flash; for anything under $699 its all made in China or Malaysia.)

              This is a fantastic spin reel. It's light weight, well constructed and smooth as silk. I love the free-spool feature since I fish by myself a lot and have to set my rod and reel down. This feature has already saved my rod/reel leaving the boat once. I combined this reel with a 7' Crowder medium action rod and 12lb test Trilene. Nice combination and has alredeady boated several descent fish.

                    Comments about Spinfisher V Reels:

                    Just got the Spinnfisher 6500. It is awesome! Obviously haven't fished it yet, but it feels rock-solid and balances nicely on my 8 ft. I plan on fishing this in the surf, submerged about 20% of the time. The seals in this feel like they'll keep out the saltwater. I'll let you know otherwise.
