The term greenie is used to describe PENN’s original spinning reels. Collectors an d anglers refer to them as greenies. The Greenie or PENN spinning reel line was started in 1961 with the PENN Spinfisher 700. Many collect these reels for display, but some still use their Greenies today. I have a few that I rig up for summer fun surf fishing on old lamiglass rods form the seventies..
