Buyer's Guide

Penn Spinfisher V 8500 Spinning Reel

Impressive and built like a tank! The new revolutionary watertight design of the Spinfisher 8500 prevents the reel from environmental damage to the drag and internal gear mechanisms. This design proves Penn's commitment to designing reels for optimum performance and longevity. In addition, this reel features line capacity rings that allows the angler to determine how much reel is left on the spool, and how much line is out. This reel also features a rubber gasket to prevent line slippage, negating the need for monofilament backing when using the new Spectra braided fishing lines.

When looking at this reel up close it screams QUALITY! Everything from the handle to the bail is built for nothing short of hardcore performance, and longevity. This reel is extremely well built from a well thought out design. The gear ratio and line pickup rates are ideal for many different fishing applications. Picking up the slack line when a fish takes your kite line will never be the same again!

Hands down, all in all, the 5th Generation Spinfishers from Penn are by far the most awesome spinning reels we have EVER fished.
