Just picked this up. It was really crusty, but only paid $3  Roll Eyes  Anyway, it says "No. 180" on it, but after looking at other 180's I'm not so sure this is one because the others look narrower.  Huh?

Did they make a wide 180, or perhaps this is a 180 that was widened?

   It appears that someone put 155 posts, spool, and stand on that 180 Nelz. It's still a steal though...for 3 bucks! Cool

Son-of-a-gun Mo, I think you nailed it. The stand says 30-155.

Bride at yard sale found a box full of fishing accoutrement... 10 rod holders, line
winder, variety of lures..etc. . At the bottom of the box was this Penn 9  Level
Wind, U.S.A. .She gave $5 for all.  Cool...I was busy picking the Swap Meet. Wink

Nice find!

Question:  What are the differences between the Peer 9 and Mag 10?
The seem to hold the same line capacity (275/15).  So is it just the magnet in the Mag 10?  Looks like the gear ratios are close.

Mag 10 has BB vs bushing, mag control obviously, bigger handle, heavier stand and posts, higher speed (bigger gears and drags). A much more robust reel.

Thanks Team Tani....

The Bride done good...but, she is a work in progress... full wings not earned
until she brings home a Yard Sale Mitchell President !  Grin Grin Grin.

I cleaned and lubed the reel...to be honest, didn't require much effort. I do not
believe this Level Wind had much rod time...or else the original owner took really
good care of his/her gear. I'm thinking I'll set this up as a troller with 10 - 12 #
mono. The level wind has just the slightest hesitation when the guide is mid-reel.
Not sure if anything is out of alignment (cannot see an issue) ...but do notice that
tweaking the main drag and the Star drag seem to minimize the hesitation. I'll wait
to get it on the boat to see if it is just my imagination.

I took the "after" photos.... the reel appears to hold good build quality.

Charles, if the LW is ticking, you probably have a worn spot on the nylon idler gear..a couple bucks for the part. Note- 10-12lb is a bit light and may get behind the spool.  I'd recco 15-20. I run 20 but more as a function of what i use the reels for.

Bill... I agree. She is my fishin' partner. She grew up in a Zebco family...
and I can't get her to budge off of using Zebco.  Grin On the other hand
she is a Yard sale Jedi. And, willing to bring me home some good tackle.  
Cool
I know I'm a lucky guy.

TH....I'll take her back apart and check out the idler gear. I appreciate
the rec. on the # test. Will move up to 15 # test ...thank you.

Charles
