Good Enough for me
April 6, 2014
All i hear and read about are how great bail-less reels are for surf fishing, all i see using them are guys in wetsuits diving under waves and guys getting thrown off of rocks, Well i'm not one of those guys. i fish on a nice beach with waves breaking at my knees. So why did i buy one of these reels? well after snapping off two or three $20 lures because the bail came down with the lure still flying threw the air, i had enough of that. I'm not a rich guy so buying a 7,8,$900 dollar reels were out of the question Then i saw the Penn SSV6500BLS Spinnfisher V Bail-less reel. I matched it up with a St.Croix MOJO 10' ( I wrote a review on the MOJO as well). I was a little nerves about casting with it at first but it really only took a few casts to get the hang of it. Over all it's a really nice reel for guys who want a bail-less reel but dont want to spend a ton of money.
Pros:Smooth, doesn't cost a ton of money, and fun to fish with
