The Penn Spinfisher SSm Reel Series incorporates roller bearings that are the infinite anti-reverse for an immediate hook setting capability. They have five ball bearings that are stainless steel along with an incredible balanced feel thanks to the latest in stereo lithography and computer modelling. The Spinfisher SSm reels are very durable and capable metal body spinning reels that are available in the market today.

These reels come with an improved look, better balancing and gear feel. There are four models under the Penn Spinfisher SSm Spinning Reels Series and what follows is a follow-up on each of them:

1. Penn Spinfisher 650 SSm – This model in specific has a mono capacity of 250 yards of 15 lb fishing line. It has 5 BB or 1 RB bearing. The gear ratio on this model is 4.7:1. With a weight of just 24.0 oz the line retrieve per crank on this spinning reel is 34 inches approximately.

2. Penn Spinfisher 750 SSm - This model specifically has a mono capacity of 250 yards of 20 lbs fishing line. This model has a 5 BB or 1 RB bearing. The gear ratio on the 750 SSm is 4.6:1. With a weight of 25.7 oz the line retrieve per crank on this reel is a good 36 inches.

3. Penn Spinfisher 850 SSm – This model of this SSm series has a mono capacity of 250 yards of 25 lb fishing line. It also has 5BB or 1 RB bearing. The 850 SSm has a gear ratio of 4.2:1. With a weight almost similar to the previous two models of 27.1 oz this spinning reel has a line retrieve per crank of 40 inches.

4. Penn Spinfisher 950 SSm – This model from the Penn Spinfisher SSm reel series has a mono capacity of 300 yards of 30 lb fishing line. It too has a 5BB or 1 RB bearing. The 950 SSm model has a gear ratio of 4.2:1, the same as the 850 SSm of this series. Though this spinning reel is a little heavier than the rest at 34.5 oz it however, makes up for it with a great line retrieve per crank of 38 inches.

The oversized, ergonomic, soft grip power knob in the 850 SSm and the 950 SSm models in this series do not go unnoticed. The ‘power knob’ offers an angler with a handle surface that is perfect for great cranking power but it still is soft to touch and is very comfortable as well. So what more has to be emphasized on about this series to convince all you who love fishing to go out and buy them immediately?
