PENN Spinfisher V Spinning Reels
I bought the ssv4500 and the ssv5500 and let me tell you, These reels are awesome! Me and my wife went fishing to Matagorda Tx spring break weekend and caught two nice big fish and put these reels to the test. They performed incredible !!

Bought a 4500 for inshore at mosquito lagoon, sebastian inlet, indian river etc. Haven't caught anything in salt yet but it casts a mile and the retrieve is great. This thing is built to last! Funny story about this reel, I had just SNAPPED my sedona 2500 handle on a 1lb bass. I happened to have this bad boy handy. Next cast I landed a solid 18in bass. I have all the reels I need for now. However, the next reel I buy will undoubtedly be a spinfisher!

I bought this reel last month, while shopping with my dad. I got the 6500 model and put 30 lb. braid on it, and a steel leader for just catching things in the surf and off a pier in Corpus. First day out with a little fishing in the am and some in the pm, I caught 13 fish, pulling them up a 15 foot pier and another 4 foot railing. It winched them easily like a tow truck and the slammer drag system is for reel. I am already shopping for possibly a bigger model sometime down the road. This reel will do everything that I asked of it , with ease.

Penn Spinfisher SSV4500 - great reel
I put the Spinfisher SSV 4500 spinning reel on the Ugly Stik Inshore Select 8 - 20lb Saltwater spinning rod. These two are great together. I am hoping to catch Galveston Bay redfish and trout. You can't go wrong with this reel. I started with 12lb line. But you can probably go up to 20lb or maybe even 30lb braid. It depends on what you are routinely catching. I am not trying to catch larger fish on this setup. The drag is smooth. Buy the reel and you will be pleased.
