Product Features


The spool on this reel offers secure line anchoring. The reel provides a clear marking for the user to site the optimal line pressure. Most spools come with engraved red lines or the spool flange. Penn SS Metal Series Spinfisher provides the versatility an angler needs. It is accommodative of a variety of lines such as braided, monofilament or Dacron.

The spool on this reel also offers increased casting distance and a skirted spool body to prevent the lines from entangling with the body frame. The adjustable tension knob also gives an angler the required leverage when dragging. With the anodized aluminum spool, anglers are guaranteed a strong tool.

The Reel Body:

The reel's body is made of, largely, Aluminum and steel. The anti-corrosive properties of these two metals make it suitable for both fresh and saltwater fishing. Penn SS Metal Series Spinfisher Spinning Reel is water tight.

It means that it is built to prevent water from seeping into the internal parts such as the bearings and the gears. The design feature guarantees anglers a reel that will give them long lasting service and one that is free from frequent repairs.

The anodized handle is a strong and durable part that anglers can rely on, even in situations of struggle with a heavy bass on the hook-end.

Reel Gear Ratio:

With over four ball bearings Penn SS Metal Series Spinfisher Spinning Reel gives you a great gear ratio. With a single rotation of the lever, your line gets significant traction with several spool rotations. The reel is fitted with five functional steel bearings. The design decision to use steel is deliberate. This means that apart from the fluid mechanical operations and rotation, anglers can safely use these reels without the fear of corrosion. They are all weather bearings that suit both fresh and salt water environments.

Drag System:

Penn SS Metal Series Spinfisher Spinning Reel gives anglers a smooth drag and a seamless event-free bait casting experience. It comes with a drag of up to 4.9kg. The casting distance allows anglers a steady anchorage whether they are fishing from a boat or elsewhere.

The heavy duty aluminum bait wire has the best live bait casting properties. The line casting capacity is way beyond what you get on most other spinning reels. The live liner spools out the line when using live bait and gives the angler a smooth drag experience at the same time.
