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

Super solid reel!

I just love this reel bought one right when it came out to use for tarpon and sharks from the beach. I got to say I doubt there is a reel more worth the money that this one. The drag is really smooth and the gear ratio is perfect for fighting larger species!
Sealed! No corrosion after fishing it almost every week for over a year. Huge line capacity great when soaking baits from the beach!
It's quite heavy and I wouldn't recommend it in this size if you are planning throwing artificials. Smaller size and it will be great for soaking smaller baits and even casting some artificials.

Penn Spinfisher V a great reel for Surf & Boat!
November 8, 2013
Ordered my Penn Spinfisher V and received it in the mail just a few days later. Couldn't be happier with the quality and durability of this reel. It is truly built to last a lifetime.
The construction of the reel is solid, no plastic side plates. Smooth action and a strong drag system.
None, if I Had to be picky I would say the color. Hard to wrap your own unique guides with Gold being a matching color.
