Do you remember me telling you to look under the spool and if you see gold its the latest drag system available. You did good! I have 3 of them now just because.

The 9500SS has one drag surface under the spool and one up top. I wouldnít even count the one up top.

The SSV has 3 drag surfaces under the spool and the one up top. Thatís the difference in the drag numbers.
If you look closely under the hood, it should really be the other way around, that SSV would be much better off. Smiley

Chad, the parts should get to you by Monday or Tuesday.

Sal



Thank you Sal!!

Received and installed the newer drag knob today.  I really like that it has the rubber seal, and maybe it's just me, but it feels like it has a stronger spring in it as well.  I like it!  Grin

That was fast Chad, but then again, no one could beat Scott's on shipping, or great service.
Me, I'm getting a little worried. I dropped off over $400 worth of reels in the drop off box at the post office, your package was there as well.
I'm usually able to track the items the next business day, as of now, nothing yet Undecided...we'll see...

$400?  I'd be worried too Sal  Huh?
Sometimes USPS can drop the ball for a day or two.
Here's hoping they get it straightened out soon!
I'm not in a hurry, but I hope you can at least get the peace of mind of know where all that stuff is at!

The U S Postal service is really getting screwed up lately. I ordered a large spinning reel from China to use as a trolly reel & it got to the U.S. in less then 2 weeks. It left Customs in Chicago & arrived in Jacksonville, FL. 6 days later, then it went south to Miami when tracking said it was headed to Pompano Beach, FL. which took 6 more days. Then it went north to P.B. which took 5 more days to go less then 40 miles north. Maybe we should include a map for the P O to find it's way.  Tongue

Drop off box...... Yikes. I learned that lesson that hard way years ago. You have to get them scanned while the post office is open. That way you get tracking instantly. If you just put them in the box, there is no way to prove you ever sent them. If someone takes them or they get lost, you are SOL. You can also just print the labels on your computer and put them on the front porch. The mailman will grab them and scan upon pickup.

I hear you FatTuna and youíre absolutely correct.
Unfortunately time is pressing on us at times, leaving very little options.
Iíve been using that box for the past 10 years with no issues to report.
Iím good now, tracking on all boxes is now showing and theyíre on schedule.

Sal,
I got your package today, all I can say is THANK YOU for your generosity!! Grin
I also received the titanium AR kit from Adam, and can't wait to get all the parts installed and put it to the test on a big grinner or ray!

Well I installed the bailless kit and beautiful handle from Sal and also Adam's awesome AR kit yesterday during nap time.  Had the older two kids helping me disassemble a couple other small Penn conventionals too.  Didn't get any pics yet, but you're all familiar with what these parts look like.  I ordered a new pinion bearing from MysticParts.com since the rotor seems to have a slight bit of wobble to it.  Maybe this is normal??
I'll post pics when I swap bearings.

Chad, there is a possibility you might get the same results with the new pinions, a little wobble is normal on these. Of course if it has been fished hard it could very well need a new pinion, but  since I do not have that reel in hand, I couldnít tell.
Let us know it it helps afterwards, also, make sure the rotor nut is really snug.

Best,

Sal
