Fifty years ago Penn introduced the toughest spinning reel the world has ever known.
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.
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.
