Quote from: Shellbelly on February 08, 2023, 12:14:53 PMIt's interesting that Penn didn't settle into naming its reels after fish or places. I know of only two models, Sailfisher and Baja Special. They seemed to market their designs based on types of fishing and general uses in the earlier models, then got into the intense trendy names we see now.One other earlier reel was the Horrocks Ibbotson "Albacore" #427. A 250 yd, 30# mono model with a 1-1/2" spool. I believe it's a late 50's into the 60's reel. The name pretty much narrowed the model to a certain fish, right? It fits in with the 99/500 class reels as far as size and capacity. Performance is probably another matter.
