Posted (edited) · Report post

I have got a couple of old penn reels and l do not know how old they are. Any help would be appreciated.

 

the first one is a penn long beach 60. It has black sideplates an ivory coloured knob,brass internals and leather and brass drags. My father said he got it around  88 from a friend.

 

 

Second is a penn squidder left hand in maroon. It came with a green and white marbled handle, a Bakelite spool, stainless guys and a guy surf casting engraved on the bearing side.

 

please tell me if you need anymore info/pictures 

 

any help would be appreciated thank you

But try it out first

The greatest drag washer I ever used was on an old Penn 700, thick oiled leather, perfect smooth startup, great control.

Guys im far from an expert. Its hard to date them to a specific year without original box with catalog. I can only give you a date range based on a combination of features. That being said I am guessing late 50s to mid 60s.

If you want the experts to look at them go over to Alan Tani
