Pick up a couple of Penn 10/0 cheap the other day on gumtree, I clean them up and put in the collection.

Hi Kim, I like your two 10/0 senators, you could fish with one, I think they are the same diameter as the 12/0, but a little easier to manage, nice find.
      A mate gave me an old Delmar 285M box not long ago, & I brought a reel today, a mate picked it up East of Perth WA, I may not get it till mid December.
     this Box has the last price $8:50 on it, not to sure if that is US$ or Aussie Dollars, can anyone tell me when they were first Made.
      I also had a Penn 160 given to me last week, the 160 is narrower than the Penn 155 I have, I was expecting it to be the other way around, cheers Don.

A little crusty but nice 10/0's.  Do they have aluminum spools? Hard to tell in the picture

Fifty is a steal for that reel- AD, USD or even English pounds...
