Sturdy and dependable
July 29, 2021
I bought the 5500 Long Cast version about a year ago and have used it for soaking bait and throwing .75oz + lures in the surf and from the jetties in the gulf. Been consistently using 30lb. braid on 10' and 11' surf rods. After each trip I gently rinse with warm water and shake dry. I have had no mechanical issues and no wind knotts. I have not dunked it yet but I can not argue with my experience so far. The distance is great and the reel is smooth and feel powerful. Compared to other similar reels it might feel weighty but not enough for me to complain about. I'm not sure I would want to repeatedly cast with the larger versions but the 5500 is perfect for my application. If you wish to try a long cast and like the Spin Fisher line this is a no brainer.
Pros
  • Mechanically sound and sturdy as with most Penn offerings
Cons
  • The larger sizes might be heavier than wanted if using for long lure casting sessions.

Best Saltwater Reel I Have
April 13, 2021
The Spinfisher does it all, I have used it in so many applications, this is the most versatile saltwater reel out there. Is IPX5 sealed and has the HT-100 drag system, I have 4500 size paired with 30lb Power Pro braid.

Accidentally dunked it in saltwater months ago and I have no issues. Holds a ton of line, is super strong, and casts a mile, and isn't the smoothest but it's still pretty darn smooth, and most of all IT LASTS.

The Spinfisher has caught me fish surf fishing for surfperch, bottom fishing for rockfish and lingcod, plugging the shores of SF Bay for stripers and halibut, and has caught me some huge sharks and rays including a 90lb stingray.
Pros
  • Versatile
  • Strong
  • Casting

  • IPX5 Sealed
  • HT-100 Drag System

Good spinning reel for surf fishing
February 20, 2021
Used it for light tackle surf fishing in Southeastern Florida. Had enough drag to handle small/medium jacks. The seals kept water and fine grain sand out of the drag and body. Splashed by a couple of waves on the jetty. Only negative aspect is that you can't fill the spool up to maximum capacity or else it is prone to wind knots (at least in my experience). Once it is filled 2/3rd of the way, no more wind knots have formed.

Great reel, very smooth retrieve. I have a variety of Penn reels that I have bought over the years, this one being the latest is quickly becoming one of my favorites. I have the 2500 on a med heavy St. Croix mojo yak rod. I primarily use it for crank baits and spinner baits. I will definitely buy a few more of them in deferent sizes.
Pros
  • Very well made, smooth retrieve.
Cons
  • None..

Will the egg handle that comes on the 5500 fit the 4500 as well? The paddle handle is tough when trying to apply max power on bigger fish..If so, what is the part number to order to replace
1 Answer
According to Penn, The handle for the PENN Spinfisher VI 5500 (SSVI5500) will NOT fit the SSVI4500 size reel. Penn does have an alternative handle that will fit reel (SSVI4500). The Slammer III 3500 (SLAIII3500) Spinning reel handle, part number 1418975 will fit your reel. This handle is currently on backorder/ out of stock with Penn. If you would like to place an order for this part once it becomes available, please feel free to contact PENN Customer Service at 1-800-892-5444.

1 Answer
Steve,

The 3500 & 4500 Spinfisher are the same reel with the 4500 having the slightly larger spool.  The 2500 is a smaller body reel and weighs about 1.5oz lighter.  For your 7ft rod, I would recommend the 4500 has you will have more line capacity from the beach.  Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.

Is the 2500 smaller (body size) than the 3500 or just a smaller spool? I ask because my Spinfisher V 3500 is smaller than my Persuit lll 3000. Ithe SSV3500 is a really small reel.. I fish Specs and Reds out of a kayak on the Louisiana coast. I need another 3500 size reel and was curious about the 2500
1 Answer
Hello Stevie, The 2500 is going to be smaller then the 3500, Unfortunately I do not have any 2500 in stock to get you a picture of the difference.
