The Spinfisher V series from Penn have become the "go to" reels in the anglers mind as they have proven themselves to be rugged, reliable and most of all saltwater proof.
From Penns website;- The PENN Spinfisher V features our Water Tight Design so whether you dunk the reel in the surf, or let it ride in the spray all the way home, you don’t have to worry about saltwater getting into the gearbox or drag system. Our Slammer® Drag System is a truly sealed drag system with a total of 3 HT-100 drag washers (1 on the top of the spool, 2 underneath the spool). A Full Metal Body and sideplate keep precise gear alignment under heavy loads. Available in standard, Live Liner, and bail-less models.
One look at the spec for the range shows why they are technically so good :-
• Full Metal Body, sideplate, and Techno Balanced rotor
• Machined and anodized aluminum Superline spool with Line Capacity Rings
• Sealed HT-100 Slammer Drag System
• Instant Anti-Reverse
