Cheap, small and reliable fishing reel.

The SIENNA is an all round spinning reel which is popular all over the world. It’s an ideal choice for the angler who is just beginning with fishing or has a small budget, but still wants to fish with a reliable reel. In this segment, there are many poor quality spinning reels on the market with ‘high specs’ (advertising with 10 ball bearings, etc).

The Sienna does not have 10 ball bearings, but it has the quality which Shimano is known for; strong and smooth Shimano gearing, alu spool and a strong XT-7 body. Sienna is a well-balanced, high-performance reel at an amazingly affordable price. Incorporating the Propulsion Line Management System for longer casts and reduced wind knots. The Sienna uses Super Stopper II for instant anti-reverse with no back play. The Sienna is available in sizes suited for everything from freshwater to inshore fishing.

My first impressions about the reel:

  • looks quality
  • delivery time 14 days
  • some noticeable scratches on the reel
  • very light
  • in my opinion the spool size is 500 and not 1000
  • as written by some buyers this reel does not have 13 ball bearings as promised by the seller but only 1 ball bearing (which is of course expected)
  • the coil is metal
  • suitable for float fishing

My first fishing reel of Penn was Spinfisher V 4500. I used it for different types of fishing (carp fishing, spinning, float fishing, winter fishing, …). This reel was great for all techniques, never disappointed me (strong, reliable, smooth running).

Unfortunately, an unlucky event happened one night when I went to the night carp fishing with my Penn Spinnfisher V 4500…………………………… 🙁 .

………………………… my older carp bite alarm broke down that night and no longer emitted sound when fish took my bait. So unfortunately i lost my carp fishing rod and my Penn Spinnfisher V 4500 that night when I slept in the tent. With the other fishing rod I just found out of water a lost monofilament (left over from the escaped fish) with fishing hook from my Penn, . Both are probably now in the depths of this lake or maybe some lucky angler caught my lost fishing gear on the hook. Who would know?

After that unlucky event it was necessary to buy another reel. I bought a cheaper reel as my previous Penn from another brand because of mine small budged. However, I was not satisfied whit it, so I finally saved up for a new one Penn Spinnfisher.

A new generation of Penn Spinfisher came on the market this year, and so I decided to buy Penn Spinnfisher VI 4500.
