New For 2018 is the Penn Spinfisher VI Fishing Reel Range

One of the standout products released at this years 2018 AFTA trade show has to have been the Penn Spinfisher VI Reel. Upgraded for 2018 the Spinfisher VI reel now has IPX5 water resistance rating, allowing for a thorough hosing after use or a decent splash. CNC machine cut gearing is also featured in the new model.

This series will be available in 2 styles, standard spin as well as Live Liner model. Still in all your favourite heavy duty saltwater sizes but there is the addition of a smaller 2500 sized model for light-heavier inshore style fishing.

Penn Spinfisher VI New Model

The new Penn Spinfisher maintains its position as a very affordable saltwater reel from the light-heavier inshore lake and river style fishing through to beach, rock and heavy offshore. 

Whilst at the AFTA 2018 trade show I had the opportunity to catch up with Michael Guest (Guesty) at the Pure Fishing stand to talk a bit about the new upgraded spinfisher reel. Check out the short video presentation below from that catch up!
