One of the most recognized and accomplished saltwater spinning reels in the world, the PENN Spinfisher SSV is a real workhorse. The PENN Spinfisher SSV builds on that legacy with a full metal body, sideplate and rotor plus a water-tight design that keeps saltwater out. Anglers will approve of this reel’s sealed HT-100 Slammer Drag System. For rugged durability, the Spinfisher V’s main shaft is stainless steel, as is its oversized bail wire. Line capacity rings on the Spinfisher V are a first for spinning reels. This reel is suited to inshore, nearshore, offshore and surf angling, or, in short, everything saltwater!
The Offshore Angler Inshore Extreme Spinning Rod is a serious fishing tool, with a beautifully laid HM54 graphite blank fashioned using the latest computer-aided design. A custom-lathed, split-grip, cork handle is combined with Fuji aluminum oxide guides and a graphite reel seat for a level of comfort you've likely never experienced before.
I bought the 5500ssv combo with the offshore extreme 7ftrod.Got it today and it was a beauty!Proceeded to put it together and the reel wont fit under the reel seat.The foot of the reel was too thick.Major letdown.Contacted Bass Pro and like always they were very nice and helpful with return policy.The reel itself was smooth and the pole was light as a feather.Only wish it worked!Returning it and ordered same reel along with a St Croix

The lone review states the Penn 5500ssv in combination with the 7 foot Offshore Angler rod had to be returned because the reel did not fit in the reel seat. Is this a problem across the board with this combo, or is a problem only with certain sizes of the reel and certain lengths of the rod? (I am considering the Penn 5500ssv in combination with the 8.5 foot Offshore Angler rod.)
To answer the question correct you need to know why it didn't fit reel seat to short or too long. Most of the time offshore class stuff has longer reel seat to accompany larger conventional reels. A solution to this problem is to shim the reel where it tucks into the seat with a little electrical tape. I would recommend some thing like this Offshore Angler™ Power Plus™ Rods - Spinning Rods. And go about 10 ft most piers allow 10 ft as max but it still give you leverage to make good cast. spinning reel needs spinning rod.
