Redoing my little 430ss. It currently has a plastic side plate. Did it ever come metal? Kind of hard to redo plastic.

If it did come metal, does it fall into a white 706 handle category for finding a replacement?

Thanks

Jason B,

Penn made the first 420ss thru 950ss series reels all metal. A few years later they came with plastic side plates, then changed later to the 4200ss thru 9500ss series which were plastic and metal depending on the reel. The penn 4200ss thru I believe the 5500ss had plastic body parts. 6500ss and up were metal. You can get the 430ss plate in metal but it will be a tough one to find. Try some of the out of the way freshwater tackle and reel shops. Good Luck!
