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.

The newest addition to the Spinfisher V series is the SSV6500BLS Bail-less reel, new for 2014.

More Features:
  • Full Metal Body, sideplate, and rotor
  • Water Tight Design
  • Sealed HT-100 Slammer drag system
  • Superline SpoolTM - No backing needed because of the rubber gasket keeps superline from slipping
  • Friction trip ramp prevents premature bail trip when casting Heavy-duty aluminum bail wire
  • 5 Shielded stainless steel bearing system
  • Infinite Anti-Reverse (Back up ratchet on 7500-10500 sizes)
  • Line Capacity Rings
  • Live Liner Feature

Built Penn tough
May 25, 2015
Very nice reel built by penn. Glad I don't have to worry about breaking off a $20-$30 lure with the bailless feature, and doing it without spending the $700+ on the other bailless sealed reels. If your on a budget and want a good sealed reel (not completely so I wouldn't go dunking it) and the bailless feature, go with this!
sealed, bailless, built penn tough!
finish scratches easily

this is so good for trying to cast far on the surf so your bail doesnt shut and you dont lose an expensive lure

Awesome Reel!
April 2, 2015
I used this reel all last fall paired with a St. Croix Triumph 10' Surf Rod and I caught a lot of big fish with it! The drag is super smooth, and I dunked it quite a few times and it's still reels like it's brand new! If you want a bail-less reel but can't afford a Van Staal or a ZeeBass, this is the best next thing!

Great for surf fishing!
August 15, 2014
This is an excellent choice for surf fishing. I've always liked Penn. This reel does not disappoint. It's a great reel for surf casting because you don't have to worry about the bail closing on you and losing your rig if you're casting in heavy surf. I would not recommend this reel for any other type of fishing though. I used it while fishing on a dock and I didn't really like not having a bail.
Hold plenty of line Durable Decent drag
Limited to surf fishing

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.
Smooth, doesn't cost a ton of money, and fun to fish with
