That's a black beauty.   I've been into Squidders but haven't tried a Surfmaster yet.  Do you use it in the surf?  Delrin eccentric lever, interesting.   Been thinking about some use for 3D printing reel parts...

Thanks. I don't surf fish, or at least I haven't tried yet. I plan on using it for kayaking. I haven't tried a squidder yet, but I hear so much good things about its casting abilities that I might look into getting a 146 as another project down the road. But for now I want to start on a 501 to pair with my 100.

Hey Decker, you'll like the surfmaster 100 swell!  To me they respond to magging better. I use mine in the surf specifically.Won't out cast my squidders but come close! I have 1 surfmaster that I can nearly spool it with 3oz. n 10' rod. But that's w/ 30 lb test so not sure of yardage.

Nice work Jenx, that's turned out well with all the bits and pieces available from this 'village'.

Here's a couple of 100s I've put together, one with a Newell Al spool, graphite stand and spacer bars and the other with Black Pearl spacer bars and a Penn spool and stand.



Both are double dogged, the reel with the Penn spool has one piece post/dogs left over from a squidder build;



And the reel with the Newell spool has 'normal' dogs on a post;

   Cool reels Mike! The Surfy 100 is such a nice, light little reel. And fishhawk is right...they do respond well to magging.  Cool
