I'll be needing two green ones. You have outdone yourself on these!

I am temporarily out of stock. The first batch of 100 went on mostly word of mouth.

I do have another larger batch coming and will be ready for sale by end of January(about 3 weeks)

 These levers fit several Penns, including jigmaster, and all small senators up to 4/0.

 If your request is posted on this thread, rest assured you'll get a PM from me as soon as the next batch is in my hands.

   Thanks -Ted

This project was such a no brainer it is beyond silly. We are still using a shift lever designed in the 1930's by Otto Henze, the founder of Penn reels. Fast forward 85 years and it's time for something new....


  ....the all new "tank top" shift levers are 100% CNC machined from a solid piece of 6061 aluminum. The first version is a bit too proud and will not work with offset handle arms.

  A 2nd batch will be ready within 2-3 weeks that will not stick out as far and will allow for offset arms.

  First batch of 100 went like wildfire on simply word of mouth. The few I have remaining will be held off for those who buy a kit. Fear not, more are on the way very soon in all colors of the Tom H rainbow.  Cheesy

  Also been tinkering with colored O-rings, and all future shift levers will come with a set of black and colored O-rings. These shifters will be offered at $18 each, and there will be a small discount on orders of 3 or more. I've sent some out to the Ohana for feedback and I'm sure we will soon hear from them.

Happy New Year Ted,

I'll take 5. One of each color.

Thanks, Steve

Ted, they're perfect! Please count me in for at least a half dozen on the new style. The fit and look is excellent! Great work.

I recognize that reel and the carnage ulua rod Matt! The koa Brock Fee knob probably is a good idea if you're using it in cold weather. There's a few other SS and aluminum upgrades on this site u could throw money at if you wanted to, besides Ted's new shift levers.

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

Looks like the Columbia river in eastern Washington. That also looks like a dam in the background. Just a guess

I moved to Idaho lol. Yeah I love the knob. Yeah I'll probably end up buying a jig as well and upgrading it. But yeah I still need more parts on the 4/0! Lol. I can't believe I never got on this forum lol. Yeah I'll be looking for SS internals soon. And if can upgraded clicker
