Just thought I'd add a post to the 'show and tell' thread...
Most of these are everyday, working reels.
You're likely to have seen several of these before, in various tutorials etc.
All have CF drag, double-dogs (where appropriate) and various other Tani additions etc - S/S sleeves, upgrade handles etc.
Tiburon Penn 112H, spooled with 20lb mono.
Tiburon Penn 113H 'Tank', spooled with 80lb braid.
The 'big boy' 10/0, spooled with about a kilometre of 80lb mono.
Like many of the reels here, this 505 was a throw-away which I revived.
It has CF drag, S/S sleeve and Newell 5:1 gears.
Penn Newell '99' Jigmaster, spooled with 30lb braid.
Tiburon Jigmaster, spooled with 30lb mono.
Assorted other Penns.
Penn 8500SS and 9500SS, spooled respectively with 40lb and 80lb stripie braid.
Two TLD 15s and a TLD 10.
All have CF drag, upgraded bellevilles etc.
One holds 50lb Spectra, the other has high-quality 30lb Suffix cammoflage mono.
The TLD10 is spooled with 20lb mono.
This was thrown away by a shop after a customer overwound the preset and pushed the drag to sunset.
Naturally the main bearing went 'pop' and the shop left it out the back (in parts) for a few years, before giving it to me...
Various other regular workhorses...
The Curado is probably my preferred inshore snapper reel, spooled with 12lb braid.
The 'bruiser' - Daiwa Ventura 60, spooled with 50lb mono.
And the latest addition, a Newell C220-5 with Alan's cracker 2/0 handle upgrade, spooled with 20lb braid.
All the above reels were either throwaways or built from collected parts, except for the 112, 10/0, '99', 349 and Newell 220.
Not a patch on some of the collections profiled here, but hopefully of some interest nonetheless.
All the best, Justin
