So I am new to the Penn program and I see many names that have conflicting definitions online.  It would be helpful to have a break down of what make what.

Example:

Yellowtail Special
Wahoo Special
Grouper Special
Baja Special

Frame Size, Spool size, gear ratio's etc...  Is there a place to glean this info in one place? 

Thanks!

These are all modifications of Senators.
Some wide, some narrow, different spools and parts can make any of these.
You have to do your homework. Wink

Yellowtail Special= Carl Newell kit that turned a Penn 4/0 Special Senator (113H, red) into a 66 width reel (made it narrower)
Wahoo Special = Carl Newell kit that turned a Penn 349 into a wider reel (I believe the same width as a Yellowtail Special)
Grouper Special= A reel developed on this board that uses a Yellowtail Special stand to let a 4/0 Senator (113, black) into a narrower and slightly faster reel using Longbeach 66 parts
Baja Special= Penns version of a Yellowtail Special with a few updates.

There are other Newell kits and things you can do with Penn conventional reels, but those are what you asked for. As far as the particulars, you will have to search this forum, I don't have the three lifetimes it would take to write those text books.

Sid, being a Vet I'll bet you can spout off the top off your head what meds it takes to cure numerous animals, right.        RUDY

So from what I am reading it is really a Newell thing, not a Penn thing.  Perhaps I have been looking in the wrong places.  I will start researching Newell instead.  Thank you!  I think that I will make recipe cards for each and post the results!

It's also an Accurate thing, a Tiburon thing, etc. It's not just one manufacturer. Newell may have made some of the first (maybe) or the parts for them, but others produced them also. Many were made with Penn parts, such as a 99 Jigmaster. Making a YTS with 66 parts is possible. The Newell, Accurate, Tiburon version is just an improvement

The YTS was in fact made by Newell originally. You can't make a YTS as Carl made it with a 66 because a true YTS has 4.0:1 SS gears. Yes, you can use newer frames to build these but they are still making Newells creation.

Steelhead_killer,
If you go looking for Newell stuff you will find Newell reels, wich are different than the special kits made with Penn parts. You're in the correct place, just keep reading.

Don't forget about ProGear's YellowTail Special and Wahoo Special.


The YTS name was being used by others so when Penn came out with their narrow 4/0 they called theirs the Baja Special. With their latest narrow 4/0 being the USA Senator 113HN

Sure, Rudy. After almost 30 years I can do that in my sleep. Point well taken. I've said elsewhere, patience, especially with myself, is something I have to work at.

The Baja Special is a stock reel from Penn.  I sold mine to Wayne after I got the Tank.  Dominick

And that was a good call in my not so humble opinion

Dominick!

Using the word SOLD is being generous on your behalf.  You accepted enough cash not to look like you were giving it away & right now that Baja Special is sitting at my feet as I wait to board my flight to Cabo!

All that & I come over to your home several times a week to enjoy YOUR red wine! 

You my friend ARE a true & generous man!
