LINE CAPACITY : Penn 114 HLW vs. Penn 114H with CHROME / BRASS Spool . . .

I have a 114 HLW and a 114 H ( chrome over brass spool ) and I was curious one day.

The 114 H was empty and I was going to change the line on the HLW, so I used the 114H to strip the line off the HLW.

To my surprise, the 114 H held ALL of the line off the HLW, perfectly. 

The HLW had been completely filled with 50 lb-test Trilene Big Game monofilament.

This leads me to believe that Penn created the HLW, once they discovered that the Aluminum Spool reduced line capacity, significantly. I was astonished !

This is true for the 114 HLW and, I suspect that it may also be true for the 113 HLW ( 4/0 ).

Tight Lines !

Sounds logical. I looked it up on Mystic Parts. If I'm lookin at the right reels they have the HLW with a 1/2 frame at 560 yds. Of 50 lb. mono. and the HL with posts at 450 yds. of 50 lb. mono...?

These are the to reel models in question . . .

NOTE : The Arbor of the Chrome / Brass spool is much smaller in diameter than the Aluminum spool. Also, the contour of the walls of the spools are different ( wider on the Chrome / Brass vs Aluminum ).

SPOOL DIFFERENCES :

114H



114HLW
