9/0, 6/0, 4/0, 3/0, 2/0, 1/0 Black Penn Senators. This has been fun! Started with a stock 1/0 and went through the whole upgrade process. I was so impressed with what these old reels are capable of I kept going slowly finding used reels at very reasonable prices. Here are some of the upgrades available:
- Handles and Knobs
- Stainless steel gear sleeves
- Steel or stainless steel gears and pinions, yokes etc.
- Drag inserts and multi drag washer upgrades
- Stainless steel dogs
- Custom aluminum frames
- Aluminum Spools
- Aluminum cross bars
- Stainless steel cross bars
- Custom eccentric levers
All in you can invest a considerable amount in a reel that is 30+ years old. Most parts are still available for most models. Considering the vast number of upgrades available it really speaks to the engineering and reliability of these iconic reels.
