Spinfisher V

Fifty years ago we introduced the toughest spinning reel the world has ever known. Until now….Introducing the fifth generation of Spinfisher®, the Spinfisher V - now available as a combo.

The new Spinfisher V includes several significant upgrades, making it the most advanced addition to your arsenal and the ideal choice for fishing either light tackle or open blue water.

Watch the video to learn more about all the upgrades. Or click here to experience the adventure of the Spinfisher V when we field tested it in Costa Rica against some of the hardest fighting fish in the world.

Water Tight Design

A total of 6 seals (9 seals on the live liner models) are used to create the new Water Tight Design used in the Spinfisher V. Whether you dunk the reel in the surf, or let it ride in the spray all the way home, you don’t have to worry about saltwater getting into the gearbox or drag system.

Slammer® Drag System
A truly sealed drag system with a total of 3 HT-100 drag washers (1 on the top of the spool, 2 underneath the spool). All HT-100 washers are greased for smoothness and longevity. Extreme range, endless adjustment, and a large diameter drag knob so you can easily crank down to max drag.

A full metal body and sideplate keep precise gear alignment under heavy loads.

Superline Spool™
No backing needed because the rubber gasket keeps superline from slipping.

Line Capacity Rings
Eliminates the question of how much line you have left when fighting a fish. The three lines on the spool flange let you know when you have 1/3rd, 2/3rd or a full spool of line. Also if you respool often these lines find you a benchmark for backing your superlines with monofilament which will help eliminate wasted time and line.

Live Liner® Drag
Are you a serious live bait fisherman? The Live Liner drag was built for fishing live bait. Simply pull the switch back and the front drag disengages and runs off the Live Liner drag. The Live Liner drag is a much lighter drag that lets your live bait swim free. When you get bit, simply start cranking the handle and the Live Liner drag disengages, the front drag engages, and you're tight on your fish.

NEW Product
Spinfisher V is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bull Red Slayer World Series time is when the bull reds swarm Pensacola Pass. I bought my Spinfisher 6500 in mid-September and paired it with a 10' surf rod so I could sling a 3 oz weight plus menhaden out to the drop off. Caught 5 bull reds in the 15-20 lb range in the two months since then. Used 40 lb braid and let the drag do the work. Next purchase will be a 4500 to handle smaller baits/jigs/spoons.
