  1. I have too many reels this size and am not using these. They belong with someone who will, or with a serious collector. Everything is in near new condition cosmetically, and 10/10 mechanically. The reels are all freshly serviced. They have carbon drags lubed with Cal’s. Other components are lubed with ReelX, CorrosionX, or Yamaha marine grease, as appropriate. All spools are aluminum, and are true and free-spinning. I can meet up in the vicinity of Garden State Parkway exits 117 – 142 for cash transactions, or take PayPal or money order.. Free shipping. #1: Maroon side plate reel with a genuine Newell spool and aluminum bars refinished with baked engine enamel. Black torpedo knob. Drag upgraded to a 5 stack. Delrin washer under main gear. Stainless steel gear sleeve and pin. No line. With this reel goes the original brass gear sleeve and pin, drag stack, and other spares shown. $90 #2: Reel with brick red side plates. Black torpedo knob. Spooled with about 125 yards 20 lb. Izorline XXX copolymer over about 110 yards 30 lb. braid. I cannot guarantee that the following are original to this particular reel, as I am not the first owner, but they are period correct: factory box containing tool, reel lube, clamp in original package, price tag, sales receipts. $90 #3: Reel with brick red side plates. Black flat knob. Spooled with 20 lb. Trilene XL. $65 #4: New in box Penn aluminum spool. $30 #5: Newell aluminum reel foot, clamp, and bars. The bars fit the 146 and also the 100. The foot and clamp fit those, and also the 501, 506, 101, and others I am sure. $35 Take the lot for $280.
  2. Closing this to see if I can drum up a little interest by eating the shipping. (Edit window on original post expired.)
  3. Penn 155

    Penn says 250 yards 30 lb, so maybe 350+ of 20.
  4. Thanks, but not interested in trades.

  6. When did Penn change the handle knob shape from the traditional torpedo to the flattened one? Thanks.
  7. I add braid to braid using back-to-back biminis and loop-to-loop five times through. Practically unnoticeable going through the guides, and about as strong as the line itself. It takes a few minutes, but this is not an every day exercise. I've been doing it for a few years with no issues.
  8. Contact Tsunami (Bimini Bay Outfitters). They are definitely trying to up their game, and would likely be receptive to the feedback.
  9. Most likely your problem is that you did not hold the thumb bar in the UP position when reinstalling the side plate. Give that a shot and let us know.
  10. Any experience with or speculation about tuna cord wrapping? I'm thinking also about replacing a too-big front grip with a tuna cord Turk's head.
  11. I'm thinking of doing this to one of my rods. Any tips on shortening an EVA fore-grip? Thanks.
  12. X2 on the frill-less raptor.
  13. Don't lock the drag down tight on an Avet. You will crush the pinion bearing. They are meant to be fished at limited drag.
