PENN Spinfisher V 5500 Spinning Rod and Reel Combo
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.
