It is used and needs a good lube but functions fine Penn 309 level wind. Again not pristine but catches fish. I used these for deep drop trips for sea bass, cod and pollack mostly.

  8. Hi guys, this is as far as I can take apart a Penn Jigmaster as the right sideplate is jammed. How is it out of 10, and was it a good deal for 50 bucks? Made in USA. So far, free spool works, the spool makes a clacking sound when the spool tension is untightened and I shake the reel. Probably the play in the spool. Handle is still rigid, dug a trench with it into my palm when I tried to get the sideplate off. Left sideplate may have some twist, look at the top left where the left sideplate doesnt meet with the plastic exactly.
  9. Hi guys, Due to unspecified reasons I wanna have a go at landing a big ray from a jetty in the second half of the year. I'm saving up for new tackle. For a reel, I've decided that if I wanna get a conventional (if im getting a spinner a spheros/saragosa 14000 is om my mind) I'm gonna go for the Penn US113 Senator (not the narrow version). Planning to pair it with an Uglystik tiger for now as at where I live, I can't get a Penn heaver which would have been my first choice. Anyone have any experience on the US Senator/Baja special? Or should I get a Fathom 40/Torium 30 instead? Will be casting 6 and bait from a jetty. One more thing. I'm slightly obsessed with old (especially Penn) reels, which is the primary reason why I want to get the Penn Y̶e̶l̶l̶o̶w̶t̶a̶i̶l̶ ̶S̶p̶e̶c̶i̶a̶l̶ US Senator. A guy is selling a 6/0 made in the usa Penn 114H that is basically brand new (basically no corrosion, stock 1 piece frame) for 100usd. Is that a good deal, especially if I wanna fish it? I will be doing casting off jetties with it because I have no money for a charter. Alternatively, will a Daiwa Sealine 400/600 be better at casting than the Senator? Consensus says they're better than the senator as a reel in general but the only sealines I can find where I live are the sl0shes. Will the Senator be satisfactory then? To clarify my style of fishing: I fish off piers/jetties with 4-6 oz sinkers being enough to hold most bait. I'm using spinning tackle at the moment but I wish to slowly graduate into using multipliers/conventionals after exams, when I have more time to fish. Currently, I'm targeting anything below 10kg using a Daiwa BG 4000 spooled with 30lb shimano kaikiri. My ultimate aim with the tackle I wish to get is to land rays weighing approx 10-30kg, with a meagre possibility of a 50kg biting. For this, I plan to spool the reels with 500-600m of 50lb braid then fill the rest with a 50-70lb mono topshot. In the case I opt for spinning, I'll likely spool the reel with 500m of 30 or 40lb jbraid with a shock leader length 50lb topshot.

  12. Hi, new jigmaster user here. Got mine for just under 48 usd. I've been seeing talk of upgrades and whatnot to fish the jigmaster, but since I live across the world these upgrades gonna cost a bomb and a half to ship to here. With that out of the way, ive got a few questions. 1. What can I use a stock jigmaster for? I've got a 9 foot OEM fiberglass rod with a metal ferrule that i got for under 20 usd to achieve the full on 60s jigmaster pier experience. Will it take down 5-10kg fish stock or do I need an SS bridge? 2. Can the jigmaster handle an occasional 30-40lb catfish at a pond every few months? Or should I get the SS bridge, which somehow almost costs as much as the reel excluding shipping. 3. I love PureFishing and their refusal to support Penn parts where I live! (The cheapest way to get an aluminium spool is too buy a new jigmaster) Is the brass spool really that bad for casting? 4. What other reels use the jigmaster spool? Mine has a chrome brass spool (i think) that says 29-250. Does this hint to the date of manufacture of the reel? 5. Should I just get a used 4/0 or 6/0 (special) senator and ditch the jigmaster for fishing? Said senators dont seem to need as many upgrades. (There's a guy willing to let go of his once used U.S made 6/0 special Senator for 100usd) It'll just be a display piece. Speaking of display piece, attached here are some pics. 6. Unrelated: how does the penn seaboy work with no star drag? 7. At the jetties where I live other classic Penns that have been beaten to death include the aforementioned 6/0 senators for big rays, Penn 209/309s, Penn 155s,140s,200s and 180s. How does the jigmaster compare to these? Thanks guys, sorry for this insane amount of questions, I'm learning about old style reels and the jigmaster has been my second favourite so far behind the Senator. I like my jigmaster but I think its insane that to get double dogs, a steel bridge, a new drag, a new frame and a new spool for the jigger I could get a new sealine sl50shv, tld15 or a penn squall 30. How do yall do it man?
  13. Looking for recs for a decent boat/kayak rod, not too heavy, in the 6-7 foot range, MH to H power, fast action (though moderate might not be bad either), to pair with an old Penn Special Senator 112H. I found an old US made one in really good condition at a local fishing expo and couldn't pass it up, super smooth given the age, clicker works fine. Any rod recs below $150 would be appreciated, and any other recs for spooling it too. I'm thinking about 50-75 yards of 30-40lb mono backing with 30-40lb braid on top? Thanks everyone.

  15. They are not all shot, and it's not the last bushel.
  16. I am looking to get a new surf fishing setup to upgrade from my garbage $50 combo. After a lot of research I think i'm starting to settle on a Spinfisher VI (although right now Slammer IIIs can be found for cheaper than spinfishers, i don't like that the min drag on a slammer is so high). I have never used a Long Cast or a Bail-less reel and both interest me, i don't think i'd mind the lack of a bail as it's one less part that can break due to salt/sand ingress; and I feel like any advantage to casting distance is a plus (why aren't long casts more common?). So i have a few questions: 1) Why is there no Long Cast + Bail-less reel? Can I convert a Long-Cast into a bail-less long cast or will removing the bail allow for salt/sand ingress or throw off the balance of the reel when i crank it? 2) Can anyone with experience with the Long Cast version tell me how much difference it makes? 3) If the reel gets dunked or i crank it underwater, will it last? What parts are likely to rust/corrode and are they easily replaceable?
  17. Selling 4 surf rods that explain the evolution of my surf fishing journey... 1. (First 8 pics) Started out with tossing bait on an Ugly Stik Bigwater 11ft rated for 3-8oz <excellent condition rod> $45 2. (Next 11 pics)Moved to plugging on Penn Prevail 10ft rated for 1-5oz <excellent condition> $50 3. (Next 21 pics) Stepped up to a Mojo Surf 10’6 Medium Power, Moderate Action, rated for 3/4-4oz <excellent condition> $170 4. (Last 14 pics) Inherited a Classic Rod from my uncle, a G Loomis SUR 1266S 10’6 Surf Series rod, rated for 1-5oz <replaced the ugly original wrapping on the handle with rubber shrink tube, overall... the guides, the reel seat, the blank itself, is in very good condition> $180 Now I’m fishing a GSB 108L and don’t really use these rods. I’m a fanatic when it comes to taking care of my tackle. All rods are in excellent condition... I tried to post as many pics as possible. I’m accepting cash for these rods. Local pick (Jones Beach, NY) up only.
  18. For sale is my black Penn Torque 5, TRQS5, Gen 1 (I believe… 38” per turn) with bail. Mechanical 10/10, cosmetic 8/10. Fished once this year, serviced last year. Has performed flawlessly. Spooled with Power Pro Super Slick 40lb I am pretty sure. Box, Penn oil & lube, and cover included, no manual. Have heard and read these are reaching “unobtainium” status - hence $450 shipped. PayPal.
  19. Wts 9’6 1145 slingshot for $360 if your willing to pick up. Rod is in excellent condition. I’m located north shore, Ma.
  20. I've had my slammer 3 for a while now and had no issues, but on my most recent outing it was like anything that could go wrong did. 1. After hooking into a good fish, the reel bound up. I backed off the drag and let the fish run and that seemed to free things up, but I couldn't reel properly for a few minutes 2. Casting next day I got 2 absolutely terrible wind knots. Looking at the spool, I noticed the line was laying on the skirt 3. Put on a bucktail to cast out as much line as possible. Cleared the mis-spooled line and held tension on it while reeling in and it seemed fine. 4. Next cast with a Hydro minnow and boom, spooling back on the skirt again with a large portion near the bottom of the spool Has something like this happened to anyone before? Seems like after I had the lockup issue maybe the occilation is now off... I'm going to send in for service, but just seemed weird that all of a sudden it all went to **** after it being smooth and flawless for so long. Also, I did not remove or add any plastic washers on the spindle so the line lay should not have changed.
  21. WTB Everol, Penn International, Avet, Shimano Tiagra 50-130W. If you are selling as a combo with a rod am open to that as well. This will close when I find something whether it’s here or elsewhere. Thank you
  22. Girlfriend and I were on the Potomac last night. Blue cats are my favorite fish here. This one was 45”. We also caught the 12lb one at same time (which is about my average size fish. caught on a 4oz piece of channel cat penn battle 4000 7’ penn rod 30# runcl braid from Amazon , 7/0 gamakatsu octopus, 60# big game leader, wind was nasty, but otherwise beautiful day had to use 4oz lead i included a pic of how I fish. Lash a 1.75” pvc to doc post. Carry it all in a wagon from Home Depot. Still angry when released! IMG_1038.MOV
  23. Has anyone else thought of this??? And please correct me if I am wrong, but similarly to how the VS oscillates, if Penn should make a slammer that oscillates like that and spool itself oscillates down below the liner roller bearings with every turn of the handles like the VS, I think VS would be in trouble?? What are your thoughts
  24. Have a Lamiglass xs 101 mhc with penn international 965 available. $275 obo 10' 3-6oz lures Overall in good shape. I am located near Farmington,CT. But I will be traveling to Cape Cod 9/3-9/6 and be on Marthas Vineyard 9/14-9/24 and 10/6-10/16
  25. Hello, I want to sell this Penn Int. 50tw with Cal sheets 2 speed and tiburon frame. There is some scratches but mechanically is perfect. The asking price is $450 plus $20 shipping. (USA quote). I am also looking to trade it for a 12'+ spinning surf rod with or without a surf reels. I'm a sucker for vintage Penns, so a 706z would be a huge bonus. Best,
