I don't own one of these reels, but I am glad that there is a demand for your product.

The quality of Tom’s work makes me want to buy one of these reels, and this upgrade, to just be able to first hand appreciate the engineering that has gone into this.

Cheesy I talk with every part I send out and each reel I repair so that they perform at the top of their game. Cheesy

I have one also. Penn should have done this a long time ago. Toms modifed bridge is much stronger than the stock one. The stainless sleeve modification is just one piece instead of two.

My 113hn with Tom's bridge modification was my go-to reel at Cedros, Ron. I caught most of my yellowtail on it. It's only single speed and a little heavier than newer reels, but it's strong and smooth as silk!

I saw it, in fact I think I passed it to you a coupe times. The YTS is my ALL TIME fvorite reel. Maybe it's time I give Penns version a shot. I was able to cast my YTS really nice with Bryan's jig stick, I bet I can make the Baja scream.

Yeah, sorry about the wait. I put it on the build list, but there are a lot of things on that list!
 I am humbled that there are about 300 of those bridges out there and I've only heard from one customer that routinely hooks big sharks, who says he does get a little binding on the bridge shaft after long runs at full drag.

 I don't keep waiting lists or take money upfront. I usually spend the money and lose the list, too much of a hassle.

.....  smooth as silk!


I've been suprised more people dont mention or notice this about the Baja / US113.
 
Also unlike other reels reels from a well known maker they just keep getting smoother the more they are used. With what the US113 cost new, even adding the cost of Tom's anti reverse there is no other reel made that will compete with it for dollars spent. Certainly no star drag. The lever drags with this level of performance most likely wont cast as well & will be at least $200 more.

The Penn US113 with Tom's anti reverse puts a level of performance in a persons hands that is unobtainable from any where else, in any new reel, for the money spent.

                                                     New US113: $199.00  Tom's Anti Reverse $65.00  = $264.00  

                                                 www.srmo.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=P00922&Category_Code=PENN

Show me a new reel with the same line capacity, Castabilty, drag performance, bomb proof durability for this price or even close.  It very simply doesn't exist... Jeff


EDIT: As a side note.  The Tern has yet to be a proven platform. It certainly looks like a winner. However with it's lite build & thin gears one has to question it's long term durability when used with lines above 50 lb. Time will tell... Jeff
