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.

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.
