The famous Black and Gold reel colour of Penn have become ubiquitous across Australian waterways. There’s a very sound reason for this. Penn build fishing reels that are nothing short of perfect for the Australian environment. They’re tough, strong, durable and robust and can deal with just about anything the Australian angler and the harsh Aussie elements can dish out. Did we mention the kit busting Aussie fish? Yes, just about all our species love to punish fishing gear, especially reels, so investing in Penn quality is wise to say the least.
Here’s a Penn for the surf angler and rock hopper. The Penn Spinfisher Long Cast SSV7500LC is a fishing reel designed for those particular applications where casting long is critical. This innovative design focused on a reel that would allow the angler to really lay in hard to the cast, using full effort and force to gain maximum distance. Such forces, applied continuously, can have a major impact on the working longevity of a fishing reel. Penn have designed the Spinfisher Long Cast reel with this in mind and have beefed up componentry to ensure trouble free, hard core operation, for a long and reliable working life.
While perfect for the beach and rocks, those that cast heavy lures from their boats, chasing after hard fighting pelagic species, will find the Spinfisher Long Cast an awesome weapon. It’s worth remembering, casting well away from your boat can be critical when targeting fish such as Tuna and Mackerel that are known to be spooked when seeing the hull. The Spinfisher Long Cast spinning reel is an awesome piece of fishing kit and, considering the inclusions, more affordable than you realise.
