The big issue is that the pinion notch on the shaft is different. In order to make a 100xn Tiburon would have to make a whole new shaft. They already make 100 spools, so they have the profile, they just need to put it on a narrow shaft.

I'm Gonna say it!
We need these spools, Their MAGNUM Surfmaster Spools! Could you imagine a set of Tom's plates that run Jigmaster guts on a Narrow Surfmaster? Unbelievably awesome!

I know I'm not the only one who sees it, 5:1 XN Surfmaster!

Tom's plates have BB's...wouldn't that make it a Squidder magnum at this point?

The Squidder Magnum uses Jigmaster guts. This gives the reel a higher gear ratio. The magnum needs a spool and side plates. Tiburon currently makes the required parts for the spool, and Tom has made sideplates for both reels and would just have to figure out how to merge the drawings the way only he can. I don't know that this would ever get off the ground, but it is probably the most useful iteration of old Penn reels for today. A great 30# reel for braid with enough speed to work the iron and drag to bring in anything you would want to fish a 30# rig with. I'd call it the Cedros special.
