Product Description

The Penn Spinfisher V SSV8500LL Live Liner Spinning Reel stands as king in the world of live liner spinning reel. A truly vicious spinning reel, the SSV8500LL pumps out 35# drag thanks to the oversized HT-100 drag washers that Penn has painstakingly developed to perform worthily even under extreme stress; and that’s a good thing, because your SSV8500LL is built to target species that go hand and hand with extreme stress. The Penn SSV8500LL is best used for either live or dead bait fishing applications for such bad boys as bluefin and yellowfin tuna, wahoo, sailfish, king mackerel and mahi. The LiveLine switch on the backside of the reel, when engaged, will let the spool spin freely with a bait – then when your target falls for the offering, simply turn the handle to engage the full drag and hold on! The braid ready spool of the Penn Spinfisher V SSV8500LL Spinning Reel features a rubber gasket so you can direct tie your braid to the spool with no backing or tape, and will hold a whopping 470 yards of 65# braid (more if you’re using slender profile super braid like Daiwa Samurai or similar).

  • Penn Spinfisher V Spinning Reels
    Penn spinfisher v 6500bls

    If you are looking for taking some serious fighting fish on then this reel is the ticket. With such reliability in Penn you can assure that the drag will hold up to even the biggest sport fish. The bailless version gives that power in a version where surf casters may need it. Only drawback is it is heavy and the handle knob should have been an EVA one instead of the cheap plastic. Penn most likely cut corners in areas to keep the price down and what I noticed is they didn't cut the price in the most important areas. Awesome reel!!!

    Best Surf Reel For The Money

    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.

    Great reel!

    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.
