I love those narrow 6/0s...but the conversion kit is quite expensive.  I think the kit is at least $200

I would NEVER go topless...!  Shocked   Grin

Yes, it's not an issue for me as I only use it for trolling.  The frame is stronger/stiffer with the top bar and given that I have it dangling from trolling straps, that's a good thing.  But still, I'd probably rather have it topless... guys like topless!

Tiburon realized that it's not a good idea on their wide frames to go topless.
Topless at times will get you in trouble...and I mean both Wink

Does changing out a 6/0 standard for a narrow topless and spool kit reduce the weight by much.
Or Am I better just using for a 4/0 and making it topless
. Thanks

It's all about line capacity and application. Lots of folks like the narrows for jigging and such. If that's your intention then I would narrow it up. Either the 4/0 or the 6/0 narrow is a killer reel!! If line capacity is the issue then narrow is not the way to go.IMO.

by the time we get down to a narrowed frame and spool, we are far past practical, reasonable or logical.  a basic 6/0 will work just fine.  a narrowed 6/0 becomes a personal statement.  it basically says that your could have purchased a two speed reel, but you would rather be the only guy on the boat with a narrow 6/0!  Grin

Why would we need any 2 speeds Alan. You bring a big bag of reels for us to use  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Never mind I see your point  Grin

Does the T60 use the stock spool, does it come with the reel clamp?

If it does I might buy 2 if still available.

One for a 114H and the other a 114HL.

Let me know.

I'm interested in what you have available for the 113H as well.  No rush though
