One of the most recognized and accomplished saltwater spinning reels in the world, the PENN Spinfisher is a real workhorse—and the 5500 model is designed for inshore and nearshore fishing, with a big line capacity for large fish. 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, as is its oversized bail wire. Line capacity rings on the Spinfisher V are a first for spinning reels, and help you judge how much line is out, and how much is left.
The Spinfisher rod is a super-tough yet quite sensitive graphite composite blank, with stainless steel guides, aluminum oxide inserts, and a durable finish. Lightweight EVA grips round out the package for ease of handling.

This combo is worth every penny! I convinced my wife to let me buy this back in May and finally was able to put it to the test these past couple of weeks. My best fights have been one slot and one well over slot snook that didn't stand a chance against this setup! They can try and dive under rocks or swim into the pilings all they want but this Spinfisher 5500 turns them right around. The rod is really sensitive too which was a surprise for how much backbone it's got. All in all a GREAT purchase.
