British PMR does aluminium frames for Abu`s. I would love to order one like that from Tuburon.

Those are beautiful frames, but it would require a completely new project with Tiburon, with extensive engineering costs, and the risks of teething pains, none of which I would like to share.

Frames for the classic 12T Internationals...?   Smiley

~A~

Dear Lannie and Jim,

I called Tiburon today to find out about what it would take to run the topless 12T/12LT frames again, and to see if it they could make a frame that would also work with the original 12/12H.  I was surprised to learn that Tiburon currently has 8 topless frames in stock for the original 12 and 12H.  Unfortunately, they have no stock on the newer topless frame for the 12T and 12LT, but they did say that if we would order 15 frames that they would run them for us.  They would be $107.95 plus $5.70 for shipping by USPS first class parcel with tracking.

There are 4 kits available now for immediate shipment for the original 12 and 12H.  We could bite the bullet and order the 15 kits for the 12T and 12LT if we could generate pre-orders with $20 deposits for 10 kits.  The balance would not be due until the kits are ready.  Please post here or send a PM if any of the above would work for you.

Thank you!

Jim, I'm sorry to say that it looks like another run of topless Tiburon frames for the International 12T and 12LT is DOA, at least for the moment.  There has been very little interest.  Tiburon does have topless frames in stock for the original 12 and 12H.

Thanks for giving it a try.

Thank you for your post.  I would love to run the P16XN kits again if it looks like we can sell 'em!

I'm still on the board with a TXN4 set up for a Baja 113H.. Dreamer, but I would buy two.

Jose, I have had a total of 8 requests for an extra narrow Baja 113HN kit.  As it would be a completely different from any product that Tiburon has produced in the past, I am pretty sure that they are going to require a significant opening order and an engineering fee.

I do appreciate your enthusiasm and support, but we have a long way to go to get close to getting this project off of the ground.

Thank you Mo.  We have requests for a total of 4 P16XN kits plus 8 XN kits for the Surfmaster 100, which uses the same frame and spool body but a different shaft.  If we could get up to a total of 35 combined kits, including no less than 20 100XNs, we could place the order.

Thanks again,

Randy

  After a short time with a Pro Gear 545 I am wondering if this may be a be a possibility ?   A true 4/0 size reel is going to grab more line with each turn of the handle but the 545 is of a much more user friendly size using already available 4/0 parts... Jeff
