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

Great reel but...
I ordered this reel a few days before a fishing trip. It’s a a very nice reel. Smooth casting and retrieving. My only problem with it is the weight. I didn’t realize how heavy it actually was until I spent a day using it. That’s not really something against the reel just shows I should have shopped smarter.
ProsLive liner feature. Smooth cast and retrieve. Holds a lot of line.
ConsWeight

Great reel
I got the 8500. I could pass up the deal I got on this. Very big. Alittle heavier than expected but will be fine. Great drag system. I spoiled it with about 500 yards of 50# power pro. I haven’t used it yet but can’t wait to get out there.
ProsSlammer drag system
ConsBigger and heavier than I expected

ok
Reel feels very durable but its a very heavy reel the live liner works well but on the lowest setting it is still hard for a fish to pull line not good for spooked fish

Love this Reel
Just got back from a trip to the Outer Banks in NC and this reel was perfect for some great Pier and Surf Fishing. Didnt need to bring multiple reels with me ( i did bring them) but only used the 6500... It was perfect for landing a few blues from the beach as well as every species from the pier. Reel performed well and I was glad i made this purchase for my trip!

Hi,I would like to know what reel to get I mainly fish from shore in the north east.I am thinking about the FIN-NOR offshore 7500 or PENN SPINFHISHER 8500 witch reel would be a better choice ?
1 Answers
hi, I would suggest the spinfisher over the fin nor. the Fin nor is going to be a little bit heavier then the penn. The fin nor is more of a boat offshore reel.

wht lb mono test woud you put on this reel for sharks from the beach. shark size is 2-6ft. average size would be 4-5ft. would you let me know.
1 Answers
We suggest 50-65# BRAID. You will need a lot of line capacity for beach sharking. You might not be able to hold enough mono on that reel. 40# mono would be the lightest mono we suggest.
