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

best live line spinning reel
January 14, 2015
Just as the regular 6500, this reel is very durable and versatile. Silky smooth drag and great live line mode. This is definitely the best live line spinning reel and blows away the shimano baitrunner series

I am using this reel with a 2201 Ugly Stick. This combination is a win, win pair. I use this combination in off shore salt water for nearly all species. The Live Liner mode is mission essential for using live bait and then just turning the handle and you have your pre-set drag to fight the fish. I rinse off the combination and use a lube on the reel where the manual calls for.
The sealed drag and gearbox system is a winner in the salt water environment.
Suggest making sure the screws are tight every now and then.

Smooth As Silk
July 25, 2014
First off, one of the smoothest reels I have ever used. One thing I can't stand is when the handle wobbles around due to cheap bearings. There is zero wobble on this real. The line lay is even and smooth as well. It actually held a little more line then advertised. I spooled it with Diamond Braid 30lb and got just shy of 500 yards on it. I paired it with an 11' Penn Torque Surf Rod and getting a cast out past the breakers is a piece of cake. 100 yard easy as pie with 4 oz. Don't hesitate if you are considering this real, buy it. To me the live liner is a must have as well if you're slinging live bait.
Very even and tight line lay, very smooth action, great drag system
Would be nice to have a louder clicker when live lining.

Great reel! Very smooth drag. I paired this reel up with a blue water carnage 30-50 line class rod. I initially purchased the outfit for my Costa Rican trip but I wanted to test it out before then. I took it on an Alligator Gar fishing trip and it did great. I spooled it with 50lb Power Pro and it winched in several gar in the 50-90 lb range. The fish peeled off line but I was able to retrieve it just as fast. The reel did great! Can't wait to see what it can do against roosterfish and cubera snapper!
Smooth Drag, comfortable handle
A little pricey

Excellent reel all the features are what is claimed by Penn to land the big ones... Sturdy body construction and designed to do the toughest fish in the sea. I recommend this reel with high honors! CML
