Will someone remind me what the Penn kit designations were? I recall the wide 114H kit was a Black Marlin Special, I think the wide Jiggy kit was a BFT Special (though you're not using any kind of Jigmaster on BFT in North Carolina, lol). I have a some wide 113H kits and a also a kit that's between HLW and standard width stock 113H frame / spool. So do I remember there are three 113H sizes, that bracket the two stock widths: the Narrow (YTS???), the in-between-the-stock-Penn widths, and the wider-than-HLW kit (YFS???)

The Wahoo Special was a widened 349, correct? As far as I know, the 112H, Squidder kits and stock widths Jiggy kits did not have special designations as mirroring stock dimensions.

I expect Randy recites this in his sleep but he is traveling. If someone constructs a chart on this, moderators please sticky.

Thanks!

John, you are correct the wide 6/0 is the black marlin special.  The wider than hlw 4/0 is the broadbill special.  The in between standard and hlw 4/0 is the Marlin special. The narrow 4/0 is the yellowtail special. The extra-wide 3/0 is the Bluefin special (2 3/4").  The wide 3/0 is the tuna special. The wide jigmaster is the Yellowfin special.  The 99 width jigmaster is the albacore special.  The wide 349H is the Wahoo special.  That's all that I know. I believe that the rest of the kits just went by their Penn model number.

The wide 3/0 is the tuna special.

Does anyone know the width of the Newell Tuna Special bars for the Senator 3/0?  I'm hoping it is 2 7/16" like a 500 Jigmaster...
