Here is the net result of a good workout,  at times 48 ounces of lead and big baits and a good tide.
     These little reels are amazing 😉 .   We were fishing a herring and octopus 🐙 arm PCs for bait in about 150 ft of water on a ledge .    Now itís called ďfavorite ledge ď🤷‍♂️
    The Alanís handle was tried for the first time.   Itís ok,  very strong 💪.  I love to experiment with improving the reels,   This one is a keeper.

The reels feel solid under stress.  I think the endplate and the frame being one unit is part of it.

Also by being able to use many of the penn 113h interchange able part inside really adds value to these reels.   Light strong and in a small package 📦 🤷‍♂️☔️🤷‍♂️

Forget about all the reasons why something may not work. You only need to find one good reason why it will.

Thanks,   I tried another possible improvement as shown.  The Alan T. Plastic knob was drilled to lighten it and it seemed better and less slippery.   Itís kind of a test.   The fish never knew 🤷‍♂️

El Pesky,  you,ll never know if you donít go. Roll Eyes.  Just checking thing z out.🤷‍♂️🍀
     Wanted to test the clicker repair.    Late last season the click cir clip came off.   Lucky for me it was stuck in the good grease parts catcher on the endplate.    So hereís another insurance policy.
    Claean,  JB Weld that sucker!   Shown below.    Now Iím ready for another test.    Keep watching. Wink
