Product Specifications

When Penn released the Spinfisher 420SSg spinning reel, it was a rebirth of the old, popular graphite bodied Spinfisher SS reels.  Coming in at 7.8 ounces, each reel is designed with 5+1 stainless steel ball bearings, and an infinite anti-reverse bearing to avoid any back play.  The Techno-Balanced rotor system creates super-smooth line retrieval, while the non-twist line roller keeps your thin lines from getting knotted or twisted up.  The Penn Power Drag offers smooth, lurch-free performance and the fail-free bail spring prevents the bail from closing during aggressive casting strokes.

What I Think

I love Penn’s reels, from their ultralight models to their high end saltwater models.  The level of quality that goes into each reel is truly impeccable.  They took the features of their old Spinfisher SSg and made them even better.  One of the best upgraded features of the new SSg reels is the Trip Friction Ramp that prevents your line from breaking when the bail snaps closed during your vigorous casts.  On other reels, you may have the bail close quickly on you, causing an abrupt stop and snapping the line, but not with the new Penn SSg reels.

Even though the mid range price tag may cause some anglers to hesitate, if the level of quality in other Penn reels is anything to speak for, the tag on the 420SSg is actually lower than it should be.  The lightweight design, coupled with the large capacity makes this a great ultralight reel that caters to a wide range of fishing conditions and species.
