Just bought a 150 on the net and have been doing a bit of homework on it.
This model is very close to the 99 .  It has the same width, the same drag, the same quick takedown headplate as the 99,
 but does not have the same 6 screw stand as the 99.

Interesting that PENN made 2 reels so similar. Can't wait to get my hands on it in a couple of weeks.
I will post some pics when it arrives.
cheers

wow, it took two years for a post on this reel....



Basto, the 150 is the midsize Surfmaster between the 100 and 200, which are the eco-line of the Squidders, having bushings. So it is a mid-width, Squidder-sized reel while the 99 is a mid-width, Jigmaster sized reel, which is why they may have similar guts but still merited their existence in the Penn line-up. The 150 is pretty good surfcasting reel.

Hi John
Yes, I see the 150 has smaller diam. side plates and only one tailplate ring where the 99 has 2 rings.
I thought the 150 would have same drag as 155,180, but a bit bigger, same as 60 and 110.
Should be a stout little reel.

Got home from my trip and my neighbour bought my mail over. Opened up my parcel to find a 160, not a 150.  Should have been more careful I guess, buying a reel which only had one very poor photo on the advert.
Anyhow, not totally disappointed.I quite like the old 160 and have a few 155 parts that will help it.It has a chromed bronze spool 29-150. .....confused?

Too bad it wasn't a 170!
