 My testing phase is over now and I'm doubtful anyone will be disappointed with the new seats. I have very limited number of each size and color pictured. First come first served. The 501 seat is $42, the 99 width seat is $44, and 500 width is $46. add $4 shipping inside the USA. International shipping will be additional cost. Colors are black, red, and silver. These seats do not come with rod clamps. Tom H at Cortez Conversions is making us matching color rod clamps and should be available in next few weeks. Please keep in mind that my custom parts addiction is just a hobby and I'll be happy to break even on these. Also note that all my parts are USA made, polished, and anodized. This supports our local communities and economies. The 113yts kits (top left, and top right) will be on a separate thread

 PM if interested

 Thanks, Ted

 FYI for anyone on "the fence". Very limited amount of each color and width. Several have been sold, and still have all sizes and colors available for the time being.

I received my sets today, thank you Ted and thanks to Tom as well you both never disappoint.
I did not realize these are like the accurate, having the tongue machined from one piece...very nice touch Tom.
I don't want to tell you what to do, but after seeing these, you should start making them for all available reels.
I didn't get much time to assemble reels today, I did just one so far, but will post when I get the other kits done.
Here is one of the best looking Surfmaster100, pics don't do it justice, black is not easy to show:







Ted, thanks for getting these done...love them!

 Wow Sal, that's a beautiful reel. Love that knob and Adams blade too. Forgot to mention, these narrow seats are set up for standard width clamp thanks to Tom

 Thanks for posting. Hope you are feeling better

Sorry if this is a silly question, but do the 99 width seats have the extra hole for the Silverbeach? Wouldn’t be a deal-breaker, for me. I like a 99 width in black.

 If it did have the extra middle hole it still wouldn't fit a silver beach cause different screw pattern. The new seats only fit 2 screw applications. You can build a faster/stronger silver beach 99 by just doing a black sideplates jigmaster in 99 width. I do have the seat for that

I built mine out similar to Sal's, except I have Sal handle mine, and Sal gave me the spool Smiley

He is correct, pics don't really show how nice these are- match the Black Pearl's black spacers perfectly. I'm going to sand a few thous off some SS Philips head 5-40 1/2" I have to use in the quick change ring- the stock screws, while they have caught millions of fish with stock stands, don't seat very deeply, and Ted has given us a platform to really tighten it up. As advertised the seat also covers gear set. I'm really happy and have it on a stick going fishing tomorrow!

 The new seats are not just for full customized reels. They are also a nice upgrade for many stock Penn models, like Sal's surfmaster.

 This used to be a long beach 65, now it's a long "beast" 65  Grin  Grin

Beautiful Ted, the 65 is another great reel... even better with your upgrades.
The possibilities are endless with these parts.
Good job Ted!

These parts look good on any reel!
