Penn Spinfisher SSV8500LL Live Liner Spin Reel - 20lb - Black
Built to the same exacting standards as the Spinfisher V reels, the Live Liner incorporates, by simply flipping a switch, an instantly disengaged front free spool system allowing fish to run and take line easily off the light Live Liner drag. A simple turn of the handle re-engages the front drag to fight the fish conventionally. This is ideal when fishing a static deadbait, or a freelined swimming bait, for bass, tope, pike, zander and other major predators. The ability to allow a predatory fish to run with minimum resistance giving it time to confidently turn and take the bait can dramatically increase the hook up ratio.
This reel also features 9 seals to eliminate water accessing the gear box and drag, has 5 shielded stainless steel ball-bearings for smooth operation under load, an ultra tough stainless steel mainshaft and alloy gear, plus a heavy duty bale arm for longer life. The spool is fitted with a rubber gasket allowing braid line to be loaded directly on to the spool, plus line capacity rings indicate line left on the spool after casting and when fighting fish.
