I'd like to get my Penn 970 super tuned - how do I go about that, cost and where to send it?

Hello Pelagicide,
Since my name has come up and I thank the member that thought of me, I will answer you.

By the way, I did answer you once, about 8 months ago. This tells me you really like this reel  Smiley

Upgrades are limited on this particular reel, parts are just hard to come by...but honestly it doesn't need much.

I would not be able to help you at the moment, but I'm sure Fred, or most of the guys here could.

In case you have forgotten, here are some ideas of what I was able to do to my personal 970:

At the moment it has this handle and I really like it on this tiny reel



Good luck!

Sal

You might consider doing it yourself. New bearings, drag washers and the lubricants are all available from Dawn at smoooth drag on here. All the information you need is here. Take it slow be patient and worst case is you send it out in a bag if you can't get it done. Just a thought

Hi Pelagicide, why dont you do it yourself, there is plenty of info here, to guide you through it, & there is nothing better, than to do a reel up yourself, & then catch a nice fish with it, have a go, I`ve got my money on you, yee ha, cheers Don.

I should ad, take digital photos as you dismantle the reel, then refer back to them, as you place it back together, good luck cheers Don.

I have 2 drag kits left for this reel and likely no more will be made.

Cheesy I talk with every part I send out and each reel I repair so that they perform at the top of their game. Cheesy
