Next up is the Penn 111 2/0 fishing reel. Single dog, steel gear and pinion, metal three piece spool, three stack drag, and low and slow gears 2.25:1. Seems like it would make a great live bait reel. Upgrades needed for this reel are as follows:
- SS gear sleeve (98-60A)
- Carbon drags washers set (smoothdrag.com)
- SS drag washers set
- SS spool (29M-60)
- SS power handle
- Power knob (Alantani.com)
These little reels set up with an upgraded drag sleeve and good handle and knob can really crank at 2.25:1 ratio. The Penn 2/0 and 3/0 are the same reel except the 3/0 is wider. Like the 1/0 the 2/0 fits nicely in the palm of your hand. Nothing fancy just good torque and a decent drag with upgrades.
