“We wanted to give consumers an insider’s look at the way we let some of the top editors and writers experience the reel first hand before it hits the market,” said Chris Derrick, PENN Brand Marketing Manager. “The PENN Spinfisher V is a workhorse and we wanted go to one location where we could show what it can do against some of the hardest fighting fish in the ocean over three full days of fishing. We also are giving 50 consumers the same chance to experience the reel first hand on their home fishing grounds with the 50 Reels, 50 Days, 50th Anniversary Spinfisher V sweepstakes.”
Considered the top saltwater spinning reel by saltwater anglers worldwide, the new PENN® Spinfisher V continues the 50-year legacy for the spinning reel that started in 1963 with the Greenie Series. Incorporating today’s advancement in materials and technology, this fifth-generation reel has no rivals.
