I might just make the sideplates for 112H. We shall see....

Alan: What is the time frame that your looking at for this to go into reduction?

I will need both side rings and left sideplate.
Then, I will check with my guy on that.

Use the original dog on one side and just have one on the bridge. Allot less to modify in the end.

You could, but it would be a heck of a lot more work installing the bridge. Having the dogs pre-set on the bridge is always a better option, instead of having them lose.

If you have one dog to deal with you can move it out of the way so no extra work needed. If people have to modify their plates they won't use it.

If that the case , why even bother then, they could just get a ss sleeve and a ss dog from Lee and call it a day.

Is there any examples of a broken ss dog or bridge in a 112h?? Not worn out but broken. A 112h will probably take twice the amount of drag available & still not break. The way I see it the double dogs just decrease the backlash in the handle if set them up to alternate. JMO

Double dog bridge is one of the things we can do to the 112H so we can. If for any reason someone doesn't want to do that then he or she just passes.

Yes you are correct on the backlash, but it is also good to have the second dog for backup and strength, especially with the upgraded gears and drag washers available to us today, that produce way more drag.
Seven years ago this guy had this idea to do this:
http://alantani.com/index.php?topic=3077.msg19705#msg19705
I believe it was and is still a great idea, even better for larger reels.

I must not be the only one that believes so , because it spread like wild fire and still going strong today.

The good thing about this is that we have both options, so as  Joe just mentioned, it’s out there for anyone to chose what they would like on their reels.
Of course everyone is entitled to their own opinion and I haven’t noticed anyone twisting anyone’s arm.

Alternating dogs--better, with one as a back-up dog--better'er. You never know fer sure at my level of experience if the spring's gonna stay put on either of the dogs, once I've played with it.
 Test failure's ok, but not failure out on the water. Have dremel, will modify, but could be a b____h, if you screw up your only plate.

Assembly of the reel and installation of double-dogs(on the bridge plate screws, not drop-in) is fun, but could be pretty frustrating if yer not used to Penn head-plate assembly.

Based mainly on what I've read here, I think single dogs in good working order should be enough anti-reverse.  A bakelite side-plate cracking 'cause a AR pressure pushin on the bridge-plate screw, anyone ever experience that?

This item is a go. You will need to take some meat off from inside of the right sideplate to make it works.

If you use Tom’s new sideplate, please check with Tom on that. I know that Sal sent this 112H DD bridge to Tom to see if he can make it as a drop in with his 112H sideplate.

Since this item is not going to be stamped out, it is machine cutting. Therefore, the cost is much higher.

The cost is $54.99 each including shipping. Only 80 pieces will be available. The item will be ready in 50 days. I will require payment first on this item.

If you would like to order this, please send email to sales@prochallenger.com and let me know if the order will be shipped within FL because there is 7% sale tax will be added.
