One of the most recognized and accomplished saltwater spinning reels in the world, the PENN® Spinfisher® is a real workhorse, and the bail-less model is great for surf-casting. The PENN Spinfisher V 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. Line capacity rings on the Spinfisher V are a first for spinning reels, and it moves smoothly on 5 shielded stainless steel bearings.

Answer this Question


It has no wire bail that will bend or break, if you look closer at the reel it still has the guide part of the bail.

Staff Answer
The Spinfisher V still has the bail roller mounted on the rotor. The bail wire that is eliminated only serves as a guide to manage the line to the roller. With the bail wire absent the angler must manually put the line on the bail roller to retrieve the line. The positive to have the bail wire not present is that you will never have the bail close during the cast.
