Hi guys and gals,

The offering.


As you can see, the lasted eared washer sits well inside Newell's 4:1 gear for Penn's 500 and 501


and with all washers in the stack


They will also fit in the Newell 200, 300, and 400 series reels.

We will also include a belleville washer to replace the wave washer provided by Penn.

Cost is $28 including shipping in the USA.  PM me with the quantity along with your email and shipping address.  I will be sending you a PayPal invoice and upon payment, I'll be shipping out the sets.

I will have 20 sets in by next week and will start shipping the week after that.

Thank you for your interest.

hi Bryan,

whats max drag without upgraded drags & ss bridge sleeve?  to get 18-25lbs drag with upgrade, is ss sleeve necessary or replace sleeve after stock sleeve is rounded?

thanks,
ralph

Hi Ralph,

Stock HT-100 drags are comfortable at max 12# of drag.  The brass gears normally start to shread at 15# of drag.  The brass gear sleeve also start to round at 12# of drag.  So, this set-up does involve several things that needs to be considered.

1)  You should upgrade your gear sleeve to SS or Ti (still under development).
2)  You should use Penn's old stock of steel gears or aftermarket SS gears, such as BlackPearl, SmoothDrag, Newell, or Accurate.
3)  5 stack drag set.

When you add it all together, it does add up and is not for the budget minded, but for those who still love to fish these older reels and bring them in par with newer fishing reels.

I have not taked up the drags to 25# as I am still afraid that this is too much for these tiny reels, but am comfortable at 20# of drag making this a viable to fish with 50#-60# test line with smooth drags at the upper drag settings.

Personlly, I like the 5 stack because the drags seem much smoother than a 3 stack at the higher limits.

I hope this helps.

Look forward to receiving my kit, one quick question the Teflon/delrin under gear washer does it install dry or what do you recomend we lube it with?.

I have all of the answers, yup, no, maybe.

The under washer should be a greased CF washer.
Hi Lee,

As stated previously, the CF washer would essentially disintegrate at higher than 20# of drag, and therefore, we need to consider reliability of the entire system.

I personally like having a CF washer under the main gear, but if it will mean that the washer would need replacing periodically or worse yet, the washer would disappear during a fish fight resulting in metal to metal contact, we though it would be best to go with a friction bearing material that can stand up to the pressures.

Is this the drag set that will match the coming Black Pearl gears?

They should.  That is one of the reasons we decided to proceed with this drag upgrade kit.

Maybe it could be. My CF washer sheredded where it makes contact with the gear ratchet. If the teeth on the ratchet weren't as sharp on the flat side, we would probably get away with a CF washer. :-\
Forget about all the reasons why something may not work. You only need to find one good reason why it will.

I am thinking that I wouldl include both washer in the next run  Maybe the CF can sit on top of the teflon/delrin washer to protect it from the gear sleeve and still function
