I have good news and bad news from Tiburon regarding the new N220XN extra narrow kits for the Newell 200 series reels.  The good news is that Tiburon has notified me that they will have the N220XN extra narrow ready on Thursday December 19 and I will be going down to Orange County on Thursday to pick them up.  I will ship as many as possible on Saturday and the rest of Monday.

The bad news is that there is no room for the extended rod clamp bracket on these kits because the bulge at the bottom of the 200 series right side plate is in the way, so these kits will not be usable on a deckhand style rods unless you use an aftermarket rod clamp kit.  One bit of good news there for those of you who are using rods with reel seats (as opposed to deckhand style rods with not reel seat) who do not need rod clamps, the price will be reduced by $9 to $120.  One other bit of good news is that without the rod clamp brackets, for those of you who like to palm the reel or like to keep your left hand in close, you won't have to worry about the discomfort of rubbing your hand or wrist on the rod clamp.  

For those who fish deckhand style, there are two options.  One is to cancel your order with my apology for the mistake, and if you have sent any money already, receive a full and immediate refund, no hard feelings.  A second option is that Tiburon has offered to produce a modified version of their Accurate rod clamp kit (TCU-Accurate) if I buy 15 sets which will allow the N220XN (and the P21XN Jigmaster and N322XN Newell and P16XN Squidder kits to work on all but the extremely large diameter deckhand style rods.  Unfortunately, these kits are pricey.  Tiburon charges $53 for the Accurate kit and they will sell N22OXN version to me for $35.  If anyone would like one, I will sell them at my cost.  They would be ready in early January.

If you have a kit on order, please let me know if you would like to cancel it due to the lack of an inexpensive rod clamp kit.  If you are OK with your N220XNs without the rod clamp kit, they are $120 plus $5.53 for shipping to anywhere in the USA by USPS first class parcel with tracking, and I would appreciate it if you would please send payment to our PayPal account at rosygirl900@aol.com.  If you need me to send you a PayPal or Square.com invoice, or if you would like to send a check or money order and need my address, please PM me and I will take care of it.

Thank you,

Randy
PS: Here is a look at the difference in width between the 1 5/8" wide standard 220 and the 1 1/4"wide N220XN.  It is actually a P16XN kit but it is the same size and just for comparison.  All of the N220XN kits are black.

Looking good Randy,going to be Arundell reel. A Duran clamp might work too, same amount of money about but could be an option for those that have one. I have a Duran super clamp, I’ll try it and see

Steve, the side to side spool spacing on Newells can be inconsistent.  In most cases, it can be fine tuned by adjusting the bearing cups (except for the C series and some S and no letter reels that have the non adjustable right side bearings and the self-destructing plastic caps on the left side), but sometimes that doesn't work, so the nylon washer can be placed inside the bearing cup under the bearing to move the spool into proper alignment.

Thanks again, and Happy New Year,

Randy

That's great JK!  As to line capacity, I only have one report and that was 290 yards of 40 lb. Power Pro.

That sounds right, the Boss got 300 of 65 on a 100 spool for me, about the same in 40 would be right for the XN.

Thank you for the info.  That should be enough for just about anything around here.
