  2. I am in the process of ordering parts to rebuild an old Penn Squidder 140 and hoped to get some comments regarding the Brian Young 5 stack drag as opposed to the regular Smooth Drag 3 stack drag. I will be replacing the sleeve with a stainless one (Mr. Tani's with the flats milled to the ratchet to accommodate the Brian Young drag) and static magging it regardless. The use will primarily be fishing from a bridge where we float deep diving plugs (Rapala Magnum 20s) out with the tide about 60 yards to some rock piles (that are about 100 yards long) and then crank them back for grouper (up to about 30"). The drag will be cranked down all the way just shy of locked up to snatch the grouper away from the structure before you get "rocked up" as we say. I was using a magged Penn Senator 4/0 with a Smooth Drag replacement which worked well but is very heavy. Then a magged Penn Senator 3/0 with a stainless shaft and the Brian Young 5 stack which is a little lighter, and now I am going to try it with this magged Squidder. The hope is that the Squidder will cast much better than the Senators and reduce all the time it takes to float out to the rock piles and be a bit lighter to work with as well. I do appreciate that I am probably pushing the limits of a Squidder with this craziness, but it keeps things interesting. Any comments will be appreciated.
  3. Hey SOL reel repair guru's! I am thinking of getting a set of graphite newell bars to upgrade my squidder before heading down to OBX. I am curious to know if there are any drawbacks to using the graphite bars instead of aluminum? I realize that they are not likely as indestructible compared to the aluminum, but are they still good enough for the average Joe? thank you! -Buckmark22
  4. Hi everybody, I have several conversion projects going on and I would like some feedback. First off I have 4 new sets of SS duel dog bridges with sleeves and yokes, HT-100 drag kits and smooth drag kits, enough Newell posts, spools, stands and clamps to convert 3 of my Jigmaster 500's to a 99 and a 501. Now I have 3 new old stock 500's in mint condition and several other 500's in fair to good cond. My question would be do you think I should convert the new ones or the used ones. I am having a hard time locating Newell LC-1 bushing caps as well. Thanks, Phil
  5. I have two plastic spools and one handle for trade. The handle comes with the handle screw and handle lock screw. It's a type A handle. It will fit a lot of different Penn models: 140, 145, 146, 200, 9, 209, 309, a lot of others. It originally belonged to a Squidder 140. I'm willing to ship and trade it for plugs, lures, braid, anything that I could use.
