The Shimano spinners don't need much grease at all. As you have found out the grease left on the gears is almost non visible.

Open any new small Shimano spinner and you will notice one small spot of grease on the back of the main drive gear. It's the same on the pinion gear. They let the gears spread the grease around after assembly.

Only a very light coat is needed on all internal parts.

very cute!  i had dogs as a kid but never as an adult.  part of the excuse is that i have allergies (which i do), but the other part is just wanting to avoid the work involved.  i never did even learn how to properly paper train a pup.

 Opportunity was knocking as one of my employees had a female yorkie with a fresh litter of 3 puppies. Timing could not have been any better as they joined our family just 3 days before Christmas. I say "they" because we scooped up a brother and sister. They are about 12 weeks old now and weigh less than 2.5 pounds. Full grown will be 6-7 pounds.

 Needless to say I've had my hands full lately, poddy training and feeding and cleaning up behind them. They seem to like their new home and really like the big back yard and are exploring every inch. Only problem is getting them to come back in !! LOL

OK, I had to think about this. If I understand correctly the line is getting caught on the external screw heads of the stripper guide (double roller). Strange, but perhaps you are using the rod for fast jigging or you are trolling fast and the bait/lure is slingshotting creating some brief line slackage and it is catching on the screws.

Perhaps, you can slip a heavy duty rubberband over the guide and covering the screws and creating a side panel at the same time. You will have to put it on before feeding the line through though. Just wrapping some electrical tape would be easy but you would have to deal with the sticky goo on the guides.

My attempts at "paint brushing" aren't that good but the first is what  I think you are explaining on how the line is catching and the second is a heavy duty thick rubber band or something similar stretched over the guide to hold the line inside the frame. Location of the placement of the rubber band would be important.

 Not sure about the black monofil reels Mo

  Penn kinda pulled a fast one on everyone by "introducing" reels specially made for monofilament line. The monofil 25 is an exact duplicate of a 155, just different label. The monofil 26 is duplicate of a 160, and the 27 is a re-labeled 180. All 3 had been around since prior to the war and continued to overlap with the monofil, even though they were exact same reel. I've rebuilt a couple grey monofil by using a 155 as a donor reel. Its the affordable way to get yourself a nice grey 25 without spending lots of dough.

 Wish Penn made more reels in this lipstick red color. I always wondered why they only did the 27 in this color


   Same here Ted, especially since it doesn't show up cracked as many times as the green and grey Monofils. I hate that the Coloramic Monofils only lasted a few years. Then they went right back to that old mud/brown/maroon watcha-call-it! Cheesy  I see the more common red maroon a lot, and an occasional black Monofil. Are the black ones kinda scarce?

Could someone give me the weight of the Tiburon P16 frame for the Penn Squidder 146 (preferably without the clamp)?  Thanks.
We're not talking pounds anymore, now we're talking ounces, as we're in a casting tournament Roll Eyes. It won't really matter on Fluke Joe Grin.
The P16 without the clamp is 2.8 oz. the newer style might be just a tad less.I was thinking about MO's comment on plastic spools, the Newell aluminum spool might be the same...if not lighter.
I know that the newell spools are lighter than Penn's.

On another note:
When the Tuna trip will happen on the East Coast, with  only vintage reels allowed, I hope you guys that are worried about holding a pound or two could handle a 10 - 15 pounds reel Grin

hmm per Alantani post on another thread saying the makaira model SEa didnt needed pre-service, I never did one to my mk-15Sea, but now that you found that on yours, I better take the reel seat screws out and grease them with yamaha grease just to be sure they can be removed down the road.
