4 New Saltwater Spinning Reels from ICAST 2023

In the department of saltwater spinning reels, ICAST 2023 had only a handful of options. Some reels were best-suited to the surf fisherman, while others will excel as an all-around inshore reel for the boat. These are our top picks.

Penn Spinfisher VII 

The newest evolution of the reliable Spinfisher lineup touts an IPX5 waterproof rating, so the gearbox and drag system are protected from corrosive salt water, a rigid, full-metal body and side plate maintain alignment of the all-brass gear system.  

Available in standard, live-liner, long-cast, and bail-less models. 

$240

Seviin GSW Series 

Designed for inshore and surf-fishing applications, this spinning reel is lightweight and durable due to its aluminum body construction. A shielded stainless-steel bearing system seals out corrosive salt water while the reel’s slow oscillation creates an even line lay conducive to long casts. 

$160

Okuma Inspira ISX

This saltwater spinning reel features an aluminum flex-resistant armor and its cyclonic-flow rotor increases air flow which, in turn, decreases moisture and eliminates internal corrosion.  

$100

Tsunami SaltX II 

With 19 internal seals, 7 sealed bearings, and a sealed anti-reverse bearing, this lightweight aluminum-bodied reel was built to withstand full submersion. The aluminum rotor further reduces the reel’s weight while stainless-steel main and pinion gears generate smooth, strong cranking power. 

$400
