Live Liner® Drag - Are you serious about live bait fishing? The Live Liner drag was designed for live bait fishing. Just pull the Live Liner switch back to disengage the front drag and the line will run off the Live Liner drag. The Live Liner drag is a lighter drag system that lets your live bait swim unhindered. When you get a bite! Crank the handle, the Live Liner drag disengages and the front fighting drag engages putting you tight on the fish.
Complete Water Tight Design - A total of 6 rubber seals (9 seals on the live liner models) create a virtually impenetrable water tight design. Whether you cop a wave in the surf, or the reel gets drowned in the spray on the boat ride home, you don’t have to worry? Saltwater wont penetrate the seals and won’t be getting into the gearbox or drag system.
Slammer® Drag System - A fully sealed drag system with 3 HT-100 drag washers (1 on the top of the spool, 2 underneath the spool). All HT-100 washers are come greased for extra smoothness and even longer life. With a large even extreme drag range, nearly endless adjustment, and a large easy to grip drag knob you can easily crank down to max drag and stop that big fish.
Full Metal Body - As like the original Penn Spinfisher Reels, the Spinfisher V is housed in a rugged full metal body and sideplate this helps maintain exact gear alignment even under extreme loads. Also all th metal parts on the Spinfisher V recieve an extremely durable heavy duty anodisation providing long life.
Super Line Spool™ - Now there is no need to back up your reel with mono when using braided line. The Spinfisher V Features a rubber gasket that prevents braided lines from slipping!
Line Capacity Rings - Now you'll know how much line you've got left when your hooked on to that big fish. The Spinfisher V features three lines on the spool flange to that lets you know when you have 1/3rd, 2/3rds and a full spool line. It also provides a good guide if you're going to top shot some braid on to your spool.
