The PENN Spinfisher line of spinning reels dates all the way back to April of 1961 with the original PENN Spinfisher Model 700, and since then has been one of the top inshore and surf fishing reels. Now over 60 years later PENN is introducing the newest iteration of this long-lived line of spinning reels, the new Spinfisher VII. Continuing this long legacy, the Spinfisher VII comes with a fully sealed HT-100 carbon fiber drag system for a very powerful stopping power. The new big thing with the new spinning reel is an upgraded all-brass gearing system made on PENN’s new upgraded CNC technology. This is matched along with 5+1 stainless steel ball bearings that are all sealed for longevity. This reel has the makings of being a strong and durable reel to use in the salt to bring in some monsters.
The new Spinfisher VII is coming out in 18 different models, starting from a light tackle 2500 size up to an offshore big game 10500 size reel for taming those big offshore targets. Additional varieties will be available as well such as long cast, liver liner, and bail-less variants. The max drag across all 18 models will range from 15 pounds to 50 pounds depending on the reel size. The Spinfisher VII’s across the board will also feature an IPX5-rated sealing system that protects them from water intrusion into the main body from splash and spray on the water. MSRP will range from $179.95 up to $289.95 depending on the model and should be available everywhere later this year in September.
