Clean  up a ocean city 612 (true temper) the other day it was in poor condition, but I was impressed built to last ,all steel gears, double bar's,and a big drag. One question I have Mike mentions that the 14/0 and 16/0 had different size drag washer this 12/0 has the same  set up.Huh?

The set up is the same but the sizes are different. The outside diameter of a 12/0 drag cup is 1 9/16 inches. A 16/0 drag cup outside diameter is 2 inches. Big difference.

Mike ive got 610s and 612s with noticeably different size drag cups. The later models, even pre True Temper, have the same 2” size drag cups as the 614 and 616.  The earlier 610 and 612 has the 1 9/16 drag cup.

1) left to right 610 to 616 showing same size drag cups and handles
2) 612 and 614 with same size drag cups and handles
3 and 4) earlier 612 next to later 612 showing the difference in drag cup and handle size (length)

Later in their run, the 610 and 612 shared the same size drag cups and handles as the 614 and 616. The earlier versions had smaller drag cups and shorter handles.

I just picked up a yard sale Big Game 6051. Overall I'm pretty impressed with the reel. There are things that I would consider an improvement on the Penns of the same vintage.
