    It was on the flyer I received in the mail, should be somewhere online I would think?

    Hello Everyone,
    I just went out to my local Cabela's and purchased the "Red Hot Deal" on the Penn Spinfisher V series
    reel. It's the model # SSV4500. I can really tell the difference with the smooth movement compared to my entry level Penn Pursuit ll model 4000. The only thing I have a problem with on the Spinfisher V is the stiffness of the closing of the bale. Is this something that will loosen up with use?
    I appreciate all replies as always.
    Thanks a bunch,
    Prospector (Bobby)

    That feature is indicative of many 'tightly' manufactured reels Bobby.
    It is recommended to close the bail manually (by hand), after a cast.
    Rather than cranking the handle. This is less stressful on the gearing and the bail parts.

    BTW, I went to Bass Pro in Spanish Fort this morning and got a 4500 SSV and a 5500 SSV.
    They were going through those like the proverbial hot cakes ;-)

    Thanks David! That is kind of what I was thinking on “manually opening the bale” after playing with it. It got me to thinking though....Have I been doing this wrong all my life? I have always used the crank to close the bale on a cast to stop the bait and keep the line tight. May take some getting used to but I couldn’t pass up a deal like this to make an upgrade to my tackle!

    Me either (that's why I bought TWO ;-) lol

    Using braid, manually closing the bail also helps with eliminating 'wind knots'.
