A more advanced edition of the Spinfisher series reels. The Spinfisher V Series spinning reels are made with Penn's new Water Tight Design which protects the reel from saltwater making its way into the gearbox or drag system. The Spinfisher V Series reels have many improved features such as the rubber gasket that keeps superline from slipping. Another great feature is the line capacity rings, so you will always know how much line is left during a tough angling fight.

More Features:
  • 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
  • Stainless steel mainshaft and alloy main gear
  • Triple-supported and oversized stainless steel mainshaft on 9500 and 10500 models
  • Enhanced gear ratios on smaller sizes

penn spinfisher V 5500
August 5, 2015
Just purchased this item from TackleDirect and to date this reel is smooth and very powerful! Retrieve speed is great too for pulling in jigs for fast moving fish. So far there has been no water intrusion and I use it from shoreline to boat fishing. All in all a very impressive reel!
fast retrieve, very strong drag and , so far, watertight!

Smooth and Powerful

I matched this reel with a St. Croix TSRS100M2 Triumph Surf Rod. It is a perfect match both weight and balance. The Spinfisher V has a nice way of spoiling your line so it comes off smooth. The retrieve is very smooth and not that it is that important but the reel looks great.

Another good product. My review is more about TeckleDirect. After hitting stores in Columbus, Greenwood and Indi in Indiana just couldn't find what I needed. This company has a very good selection and quick turn around getting product to me. Have ordered several products and also visited the store (3 hours away) and very pleased with service. This is my 1st stop in locating fishing product...thanks

Fished hard in 2013 - no issues

I picked up the 5500 to use for a boat rod for inshore and light offshore fishing. I love the drag and the way the line lays braid perfectly. This is a great boat reel for striped bass and mahi.
price, drag system, solidly built, braid friendly

great looking reel
October 15, 2012
I didnt get to try the. new Penn Spinfisher V 5500 because it was a bit too big for my St. Croix mojo surf rod. I wanted to keep it and get the 4500 but could not swing it financially. TD took it back with no problems and my 4500 is on its way. Stay tuned. P.S. I have been a. Penn Spinfisher user since the little green 710 I had as a young man. I am now 62 and still using Penns. .
Great looking and built likea a tank
Nothing so far.
