We should have few samples for testing in next few weeks. We will also have a 2nd generation 4:1 gear set for Jigmaster 500/501 or Senator 112h which will use the same carbon drag washer as this 113H 2 generation gear set.

By the way, we will also have a standard 4.8:1 (5:1) SS gear set for JigMaster 500/501 or Senator 112H.

I was told that a few new products will be available within next few months.

Sorry for all these delay.

Thanks,
--Alan

No worries Alan. I'll keep an eye out for them in the future. The 2nd gen JM and 112H using the same drag set as the 2nd gen. 113H is REALLY interesting. That will for sure raise the bar on these reels. Exciting stuff👍🏻😎

Post by: BMITCH on December 13, 2015, 04:04:30 AM
Alan, just a quick question...in another thread you stated that you were gonna be able to make a gear set for the JM's and 112h's that will utilize the 113H's second gen. washers...can it be done to make these second. gen. 113H gear sets to utilize an even larger drag washer set..like maybe the size of the 114H??? I dunno, maybe there's not enough material to support a larger diameter washer. Just a thought.

Bob


Title: Re: 2nd Generation 113H 4:1 SS Gear Set
Post by: Alto Mare on December 13, 2015, 06:13:35 AM
Bob, we'll wait and see what Alan has to say, but I'll give you my take on it.
If you check out the 5-500 and the 5-113H, you will notice that the two gears are very close in size.
This makes it a good option for the two to share the same carbon fiber washers, doing so would save you a little.
Here is a drawing on the washers you've mentioned:
(http://i1101.photobucket.com/albums/g431/pescatore1/DSC_0081.jpg) (http://s1101.photobucket.com/user/pescatore1/media/DSC_0081.jpg.html)
I darkened the ears, they don't add any drag, as you already know, they're there to keep those washers in place and don't rotate.
Although the 114H appears to be larger, it is actually the smallest. The 500 is the larger of the bunch, due to the smaller keyed hole.
All  ( 3 ) washers would work, but I would personally like the washer on the 114H to be a little larger.
Adams 114H insert has the same exact washer as the 500. I was able to get over 60lb, by pulling the reel, we know it would work, but I would still like to have that one a tad larger.

The 500 would get ( 3 ) washers, having ( 5 ) working surface. The 113H would get ( 5 ) washers, having ( 9 ) working surface.
Of course using these type of washers you could adjust your reel to your liking just  by stacking washers differently.
You could place the eared washers on top of each other to reduce drag and so on. There are many combinations with these, but i could tell you now, mine will always be set at its max availability ;D.

Sal

Post by: BMITCH on December 13, 2015, 06:37:12 AM
Thanks Sal. I didn't a chance to pull out and measure diameters. With these drag numbers we are IMO pushing these stock side plates to there limits. Thanks for the reply.

Bob


Title: Re: 2nd Generation 113H 4:1 SS Gear Set
Post by: Alto Mare on December 13, 2015, 06:50:24 AM
The main reason for these is to have the reel as smooth as silk at where it was intended to be fished at,  plus a little more drag ;)
Don't base my numbers at where it should be fished at, those are testing numbers only.
I could tell you this, we will have the (500) as a 20lb reel, the ( 113h) as a 30lb reel  and the( 114H ) as a 35lb reel.
These will feel the smoothest reel at those settings and yes, I believe all three with the proper parts could handle those numbers.

These do better than a 7 stack, with 5 washers you'll get 9 working surfaces.


Title: Re: 2nd Generation 113H 4:1 SS Gear Set
Post by: sdlehr on December 15, 2015, 03:03:30 PM
Sal, with a 7-stack won't there be 13 working surfaces, or am I missing something? I'm going to have to sit down and draw the two out and figure out which surfaces are the working surfaces - I figure there's a maximum of 2/CF drag washer, but somehow you're coming up with one less working surface; I need to figure out which one that is. Can you please explain? Thanks. Maybe I don't understand the star drag mechanism as well as I thought. I'm all ears and here to learn.

Post by: Alto Mare on December 15, 2015, 03:09:11 PM
Yes, but it would be way too much that reel. We like to keep the carbon fiber eared washers 1mm in thickness, or more.
Using 1mm carbon fiber washers  would limit it to 5, 7 won't fit ...and that's a good thing.


Title: Re: 2nd Generation 113H 4:1 SS Gear Set
Post by: sdlehr on December 15, 2015, 03:28:04 PM
OK, thanks, that helps, but which of the surfaces is not a working surface? Is it the uppermost one in contact with the slotted washer?


Title: Re: 2nd Generation 113H 4:1 SS Gear Set
Post by: Alto Mare on December 15, 2015, 03:44:35 PM
The first carbon fiber washer at the bottom gives  one working surface, the rest of the carbon fiber washers  have two.

Thats right. I forgot about the varying thickness for the washers.

Post by: Alto Mare on March 26, 2016, 04:55:19 PM
The correct washers came in and I put them to a test:
(http://i1101.photobucket.com/albums/g431/pescatore1/eared%20washers%20test/20160325_165910.jpg) (http://s1101.photobucket.com/user/pescatore1/media/eared%20washers%20test/20160325_165910.jpg.html)
(http://i1101.photobucket.com/albums/g431/pescatore1/eared%20washers%20test/20160325_174149.jpg) (http://s1101.photobucket.com/user/pescatore1/media/eared%20washers%20test/20160325_174149.jpg.html)
Everything fits nice and snug
 (http://i1101.photobucket.com/albums/g431/pescatore1/eared%20washers%20test/20160325_185134.jpg) (http://s1101.photobucket.com/user/pescatore1/media/eared%20washers%20test/20160325_185134.jpg.html)
I was able to pull on the reel at 58 lbs
(http://i1101.photobucket.com/albums/g431/pescatore1/eared%20washers%20test/20160325_190326.jpg) (http://s1101.photobucket.com/user/pescatore1/media/eared%20washers%20test/20160325_190326.jpg.html)
That number is only for testing purpose, to see if the eared washers hold up ok.
This reel should not be fished a those settings, I'm thinking 30 lbs max and yes, I believe it will handle it with no issues.

The tested reel had the new custom heat treated double dog bridge, custom heat treated gear sleeve with 10 teeth ratchet, custom heat treated pinion and main gear ( 5-113HX ), ( 5 ) 1 mm eared carbon fiber washers, ( 5 ) .85mm SS keyed washers and three extra for the top.
They are working on making just one thick washer for the top.
I've tested a few reels by now, to me, this one is the smoothest by far.  It feels extremely smooth.


I also tested the Jigmaster set:

(http://i1101.photobucket.com/albums/g431/pescatore1/eared%20washers%20test/20160325_204740.jpg) (http://s1101.photobucket.com/user/pescatore1/media/eared%20washers%20test/20160325_204740.jpg.html)
(http://i1101.photobucket.com/albums/g431/pescatore1/eared%20washers%20test/20160325_164142.jpg) (http://s1101.photobucket.com/user/pescatore1/media/eared%20washers%20test/20160325_164142.jpg.html)

Alan source believes that the eared carbon fiber  washers will do just as good in the Jigmaster, even though the hole on the sleeve is larger.
I told Alan that I needed to tested, so here is what I got:
(http://i1101.photobucket.com/albums/g431/pescatore1/eared%20washers%20test/20160325_210253.jpg) (http://s1101.photobucket.com/user/pescatore1/media/eared%20washers%20test/20160325_210253.jpg.html)
I was able to pull it to 32 lbs, again testing numbers only, this reel will do great at around 20-22 lbs.

I checked the washers afterwards and all looked good
(http://i1101.photobucket.com/albums/g431/pescatore1/eared%20washers%20test/20160325_210703.jpg) (http://s1101.photobucket.com/user/pescatore1/media/eared%20washers%20test/20160325_210703.jpg.html)
(http://i1101.photobucket.com/albums/g431/pescatore1/eared%20washers%20test/20160325_210719.jpg) (http://s1101.photobucket.com/user/pescatore1/media/eared%20washers%20test/20160325_210719.jpg.html)
This is good news, it should save you some money by having the same size carbon fiber eared washer for the 113H and Jigmaster.
This reel felt just as smooth as the one mentioned above, we have a nice combination of parts here.

Sal

A smooth 30lb of drag will go well in the 113HNN - or any 113H for that matter.
Thanks for doing these tests Sal - everyone who buys Alan C's Penn upgrades is benefiting from your design input and testing of prototypes.

Thank you Mike, I appreciate the kind words.
I always try to give my best suggestions on everything Alan C. brings to us.
On this one:

I have a bit more involvement than usual, on making sure the parts play nice with each other.
I'm very happy with the results.

Sal
ps... I'm being conservative with the numbers that I've put out on these reels, higher numbers are not really needed, so I'll keep it  as they are.

Makes my Marlin Special a 100# reel for sure. I'm so giddy I can barely keep from falling over out of my chair. I understand that you can buy new reels that are just as capable for about the same money by the time you are done, but who cares. We're talking about fishing an 80# 501!

You guys are amazing.
Thanks

When I got Alan's gear set to draw up washers for them I was highly impressed with the quality of the gears!  Once I installed them I was more impressed, they run quiet for SS gears.  The Newel gears in my Tank will be put into my loaner reel.


I have been playing with the set I have for a few days but have a slightly damaged bridge from Sal's testing, it has a striped screw hole I need to weld up and redrill and some discoloring from overheating...Sal really put the load on it and it still works.  I am not pushing mine to the top but I am pulling 38# and it has a silky smooth 20#, my target drag # for my "Tank".   With one of the PRO Challenger gearsleeves the backlash should be much less.

That sounds great these old reels will soon be the ultimate in penn reels. I used my jigmaster gear set in my accurate squidder magnum. The 5:1 gear ratio is a huge improvement over stock squidder gearing. Now I can get my jigmaster back together and max out my 113 4/0 on improvements.

Only the pinion gear is different. Alan C. would only have to sell pinion & main gears seperateley. He is already producing what is neccessery.

I have few members asked me that if the main gear is made in brass because it has the golden color. The answer is "no". All my gears are made in stainless steel, and most of them are heat treated. The reason the color is goldenish because that are not polished (try to keep the cost down). They are just clean.

Don't worry, they are stainless steel.

If you want the stainless look use bar keepers friend found in the grocery store. Scrub with a tooth brush and the tarnish from the heat treating will disapear.

I got a set these gears n' drag washers and wanted to try 'em out with the old 113H stuff I haven't replaced yet, only to find out the pinion's not compatible with the bronze/chromed spool(reel's probably from the 40's, with the three 2.5 mm drag washers). Pinion I D for the 113HX kit too narrow, won't fit and I can see that the part that engages squared section a the spool shaft is also gonna be too small. so which spool(s) is/are compatible with this gear set?

Alex, it has to do with how tough you are. If you're like a couple of wimpy guys on here that can only use a two speed, forget about those ( just kidding )  ;D.
I have fished for grouper in Florida, but non of the Goliath Grouper that everyone talks about, those are scary.
Talking to some friends, they would be more comfortable with a larger reel as the 114h, some actually like the black slower 114.
if I would ever give it a shot, I would definitely try the Tank loaded with everything we have available.
I would probably bring two though, one with 4:1 ProChallenger's gears and one with stock steel 3.25:1 gear and Adam's inserts ...just in case.
Both might fail on those monsters, but i wouldn't mind.

I with you, I would like to try a 113h with SS guts, mine is still on process to be a Tank, but already have SS 4:1 gears, Lee inserts, tib wide frame, Toms plates, pending SS sleeve, when I got the money I will get this 2nd gen Alan Gear

this next fish was caught 2 days ago by my friend that runs a panga charter, its a Baya (gulf grouper), the reel used was a stock 114h, he dont know if it was the same fish or a different but it took 3 times to get it on the boat, the fish broke the line 3 times before came to the boat

not bad for a stock 114h, my other idea is to get a 114h and make it narrow and get a SS sleeve and gear insert and make it the grouper reel, but still continue to load the 113h with all the SS goods to have both ready for heavy action.

My intended drag setting will about 18 pounds for a consistently silky smooth drag.

Hello Eddie, yes this set will work in the Penn 113H without the easy access drag system.

If you look at the first pic, you will notice (5) carbon fiber washers, (5) keyed metal washers and (1) thick washer.
The best combination from my personal tests is by removing the last keyed metal washers from the (5) and just place the (1) thick metal keyed washer on top.
You will follow with the 8-349 and the 9-113h. Those do not come with the kit, but should be on your reel.

As for consistant silky smooth drag, I get that over 30 pounds. That is by me pulling on the reel while the line is tied to a post.

Both plates, easy access and standard work nicely and give out the same numbers,  somehow the standard plate feels a little better, but it might just be me.

My favorite combo is the top hat SS gear sleeve. No sise to side play of the gear sleeve is important to my evaluation of smoothness, and the top hats seem to fit tighter in the plates than the sleeve alone. Almost as if the top hat acts as a bushing. A bushing there would be a great idea actually.

Thank you Sal.  My concern was the height of the gear.  Maybe in the future if I decide to get a Tiburon frame, I'll be able to utilize the full potential of the drag.  However, for now, I'll be using the drag set at 18 lbs. 

Once again, I say thank you.   :)

Not sure about the AR on top John but I would like a tighter sleeve as mentioned above.
I spoke to Alan last evening and he said he will give it a shot for us.
By the way, the custom sleeve for the stock plates would not work on the Accurate plates, or Tom's plates ( same plates )
(http://i1101.photobucket.com/albums/g431/pescatore1/20161205_120958.jpg) (http://s1101.photobucket.com/user/pescatore1/media/20161205_120958.jpg.html)
Stock sleeve is close, but would be nice to get closer

A tighter sleeve is almost a must have when you really put the power to these reels. Ive seen mine loosen up after a couple of months. Forcefully moving the handle side to side there will be excessive movement.

Ive built 4/0's for 3 people that use them for Grouper and they catch a bunch. Mostly in the 20 to 25 lb. range.

They use 200lb braided line and 300 to 400 lb leader. They told me the lighter braid just didn't havbe enough abrasion resistance.

They are still using Bryans 7 stack with Alan C's SS gears and gear sleeve. Its been almost 3 years now without a problem with any component in the reels.

Been eying this set for the last few weeks.

Anyone that has a Penn Baja Special, how are these black pearl gears as compared to the factory ss gears in the Baja? I have a Baja its my go to halibut reel and is quite smooth and quiet. I have a used 112h with used black pearl gear/pinion that is much louder than the factory Baja ss gears. Does anyone own the black pearl gears in a 113h and a Baja that they can campare as far a smoothness of feel and noise?


Thanks

Post by: TongassFisher on March 06, 2017, 08:46:52 PM
Actually I'd like to take back what I said about the 112 gears as this was a used reel that I did not build so I don't know 100% the source of the gears. I also don't know the background of this 112h other than the previous owner tells me they are BP gears. The only thing I can tell is that it has pretty noisy gears. Ive had it apart and the gears both main and pinion look brand new. Just wanted to ask about the noise and smoothness before I drop roughly $170 on all the black pearl SS internals for my 113h.


Thanks again,


Trevor

The reason my gear set is kind of louder because most of my gear sets are made with 416 graded stainless steel with heat treated. It will quiet down as it uses more and more.
