This year we launch the new Spinfisher V series, stronger, smoother, a perfect drag system and fully sealed. For the first time Penn introduces the Spinfisher V Liveliner and the biggest reel ever, a size 10500 for extreme line capacity. The HT-100 Slammer Drag is very smooth and can handle Spinfisher V, stronger than ever.All metal frame, sideplate and rotor - Brass pinion gear - Sealed and oversized HT-100 Slammer drag system - Stainless main shaft with 3 point support - Enhanced gear ratios - Zink/Aluminium main gear - Sealed body design - Automatic bail trip system on all models - Spool designed for mono and braid HT-100 is a carbon fiber fabric thats laminated on fiberglass to provide stiffness in large sheets, then cut into strips. The name HT-100 is derived as follows; HT stands for High Tech, and the 100 signifies that, during original testing, the equivalent of 100 miles of fishing line was taken against the drag of a reel with no significant change to the drag washers. Inferior washers would not have lasted 20% of that time. During a long run by a large, powerful fish taking a significant amount of line, as the line level on the spool decreases the pressure required for a standard drag to give line increases. One of the biggest benefits from HT-100 carbon fiber material is that the friction decreases as it becomes hot helping maintain a smooth drag even as the spool line level falls. Penns Dura-drag material is another variation of the original material. Slammer Drag - Extreme range, endless adjustment, and a large diameter drag knob so you can easily crank down to max drag.
The Infinite Anti Reverse icon stands for the elimination of back play on the rotor when instantly setting the hook. This effect is created by adding a one way bearing in the reel.
