The Penn Spinfisher V SSV4500 Spinning Reel is a perfect middle sized fishing reel that is ideal for all types of inshore and nearshore applications. Whether you’re pairing the Spinfisher V 4500 with an 8 or 9 foot surf rod, or a 6-7 foot MH boat rod the SSV4500 is a great match. Because the Spinfisher V 4500 has 7 seals throughout the body and drag system (which by the way puts out a hefty 25#), you can be assured that corrosion of your internals due to saltwater intrusion won’t be an issue. Ideally, the SSV4500 would be fished with 30-40# braid for medium sized inshore and nearshore species. The Penn Spinfisher V SSV4500 Spinning Reel is great!

Best reel I've ever owned. I beat it to death in the surf and it never fails. Just rinse it in fresh water after you're done and you'll never have a problem.
This is a great reel. I'm glad Penn still produces this line. I purchased the 4500 LL from josh and i do not regret it at all. No wind knots, the bail doesnt close on you at all. i landed a 31" redfish in the florida grass flats and it hit like a train. the drag is very impressive and strong. it takes little increments to increase the pressure on the drag. you dont need to crank the drag knob 3-4 turns. quarter turns and youre set. the reel is a little on the heavy side but because lf the weight, it has strength and durability. great reel and would recommend to anyone whos looking for a bullet proof reel may you be a beginner or advanced angler.
