Guys,

Do you know when Penn stopped producing the Bakelite side plates?  Were they used on all models?  I see the new plastic is called Poly, what is that short for?

Thanks,
Tate

In this case, it is probably short for polymer which is any plastic or resin.  But, bakelite is a polymer too.

I'd like to know what year they switched too.  And, did it coincide with moving production overseas?  I wasn't paying much attention to Penn in those years.
