Hey guy's.

I'm new to this site.
Am in need of some information on a reel I acquired yesterday.
A hobby of mine reel services.
It's an old Penn Senator 4/0.. how old is it??
Any information is appreciated.

Early 1950's for sure. Most the old 4/0's made around that time were smooth as silk with very smooth freespool. Even crusted up they still are a super smooth reel. The 3 piece spool may have issues with spectra under a big load, but likely it'll perform just fine. Nice find !!

Penn Senator 4/O turned into a classic with a historical heritage that goes back over 75 years. Here is the first model with its original box released in 1938.

That original is a very neat reel. Never had much interest in Senator reels. However I've acquired a soft spot for the 4/0 size. I just love them. The one in your picture is of course the one I seek most. Thanks for sharing... Jeff
