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 just picked up a #14 Trade reel called the "Atlantic Ocean" 14. It has 3 pillars as did all Penn Atlantic #14's when they were introduced, and this was a throwback as all the other Penn reels of that size in '39 had four pillars, two fore and two aft with nothing to get in the way of one's thumb.

Anyone know if the 14 kept 3 pillars throughout it's entire life (ending in the '51 catalog), or did it go to 4 pillars later in its life?

Thanks.

Sid

Edit: Doh, I answered my own question. The 14 had 3 posts its entire life, which ended in 1951. There was no mention of the 14 in the 52-3 catalog. Not a bad run for a reel that started out selling for $1.50 that survived the wartime slowdown. It sold for a whopping $3.50 at the end of its run.

Right, Sid --

Just looked into the sideplate files -- found a set of 14's -- 3 posts.

Best,

Fred

When "I" take the "IM" out of impatience -- amazingly, things seem to work smoother and more pleasantly for everyone involved.

Most times we should just let our jets cool down...engines last longer, and run smoother...
