Whether you're casting lures or bottom fishing, the Penn Spinfisher V Fishing Rod and Spinning Reel Combo offers the durability needed to withstand harsh saltwater conditions. This versatile fishing rod and reel combo pairs a high-performance Spinfisher V reel with a durable rod optimized for boat angling. The saltwater reel features a watertight design that seals out water and sand from the gearbox and drag system, helping preserve smooth performance even when you're fighting back fierce surf. Equipped with a sealed Slammer drag system, it employs three high-performance HT-100 drag washers to deliver smooth, robust drag across the entire drag curve. The rigid full metal body maintains flawless gear alignment under heavy loads, giving you added leverage when you're battling a hard-pulling fish. This spinning reel also delivers excellent castability. Its friction trip ramp prevents the bail from tripping prematurely when you cast, so you can achieve your desired range. Suitable for use with Berkley or Spiderwire Superline, the spool is fitted with a rubber gasket that prevents the Superline from slipping under pressure--meaning anglers can use braided line without a monofilament backing. Line capacity rings display at a glance how much line is remaining. And thanks to its durable tubular glass blank construction and solid tip, the fishing rod offers the ultra-responsive touch, grip, and pulling power you need to secure victory over fierce saltwater game.
