The following Penn reels use main gear part no. 5-60 and 5-149:

Penn 60
Penn 65
Penn 85
Penn 99
Penn 100
Penn 110
Penn 140
Penn 145
Penn 146
Penn 149
Penn 150
Penn 200
Penn 250
Penn 259
Penn 285

I have created a 5 stack for Penn reels that uses Penn's 5-60 main gears.  The list of reels are noted above.  Most of these reels have a drag capacity of 6-9 pounds.  This should increase your drag to a comfortable 10-15 pounds of drag, theoretically.  I haven't had a chance to line my Penn 259 to test out the drag system, but is should work very similarly to my other Ultimate Upgrade Drag Kits.

The kits come with 5 in gear Carbontex drag washers, 1 Carbontex undergear drag washer, 3 metal keyed washers, 2 metal eared washers, and a new belleville.  Due to the different reel sideplate spacings, if the belleville does not fit within the sideplate, I recommend installng it between the spacer and the star for a more gradual increase in drag pressure.

Cost of the set is $27 shipped within the USA.  Will ship internationally based on international postage fees.

Pictures will be posted shortly.

Please post your questions.

Thank you for your interest.

Bryan

Really cool Bryan, I think your drag estimates are probably a bit low. These drags will give the same drag at the gear as a 113 with a 5 stack, and mine produces way more than 10 pounds. In fact, I don't see why the 99,110 and 250 wouldn't give the same drag as a 500 with your 5+1 stack. Probably more because of the lower gear ratio. A 250 with this drag and a long crank arm would be quite the crane for bottom fishing.

I will let you know, I have a 250N (501 frame) I'm going to use for mid depth lingcod and am considering one on a Tiburon 99 frame.  These washers will also fit a 113, a 7+1 113N "Grouper Special" sounds interesting for mid depth halibut.

I think I can even make a 9-stack for that gear  Grin

A nine stack, I might have to try that out as well. I have a Penn 3/0, it uses the 66 gear and the 85 spool. A nine stack on a reel that size would be interesing for shallow big fish jigging like the garbage pile at Neah Bay or many other areas in the straights.

Max is 8 which would not work.  7 stack in the 113 is the max.

Still, a seven stack is an awful lot of drag. Definatly a SS gear and dog proposition I'd say. If a jigmaster will mess up a gear sleeve end at 12 pounds or so, I couldn't thing that a larger diameter reel at 20+ wouldn't just twist the handle off or destroy the brass dog.

When you increase a stack from 3 to 5 it makes a huge difference.

If we change to a 5-1 in a Squidder, what replacement carbon washers will it need in the future? Is it the standard with thinner metal washers or are they speciazed thickness C/F washers?

The CFs are thin and the SS is thin. Changes in the future require thin CFs. I have used mine over a year and I fish 3 days a week most weeks and they are holding up well.
