I almost went for that. Woke up this morning to buy and it was gone. Lips Sealed

"Hi's Special" most likely refers to Hi's Tacklebox. It's a San Francisco landmark as far as I'm concerned (now in South SF).

Still a great local shop. http://www.tackletour.com/reviewhistacklebox.html

 Very rarely seen Mo......Tiburon supposedly only made 20 or so and they were all special ordered for Hi's tackle shop

  It's more for looks IMO, cause a stock 2/0 don't have enough drag#'s to twist a stock seat with 3 screws on each side and 6 frame posts. The stock 2/0 was way overbuilt to begin with

Ted is right, IMO --

With the (6) posts, double sideplate rings, and a stand with a clamp -- these are just fine without a frame.

Tough reels that will do the job they are designed for -- within the drag numbers, or even a little higher.

Got a couple -- one came from Jonathan, spooled with old dacron when new, and never on a rod.

The other came from Ted -- the swirled aqua blue crank knob is very unique.

Best,

Fred

 Nice reels Fred...... When you say "unique blue swirl knob", that equals rare as hen's teeth coming from a man who has seen a bazillion Penn handles. Glad you ended up with it !!

   Same thing I always figured too Ted...you could slap a 7-stack in the 2/0 and it could handle it. I was wondering what all that frame was drilled for...will  LB60 plates work? Imagining a hot rod high powered Sea Gate or something! Shocked

The other came from Ted -- the swirled aqua blue crank knob is very unique.

   Ahh...the holy grail of stock Penn knobs...I too am glad to see Fred with that jewel! Cool

Found one on fleabay a few weeks ago and bought it on a lark. Accurate made some frames too. Anyway when I saw it some reason my brain started turning and a 111 is the same size pretty much as an international 6 and thought well maybe Huh??   Sadly the screw holes donít line up as I thought. since the 111 has so many frame screws I thought I might get lucky but it wasnít to be.  Tapping screws holes in the frame isnít in my wheelhouse
Likely makes no sense to pursue this but thatís never stopped me before, haha. If anyone with the skills to tap some holes for me is interested give me a holler. Thanks

Sheridan, that would be an interesting reel.  I would break out in sweats and shakes if I even though about drilling and tapping that frame.... Shocked   Bill

Yeah,  I watched for one of those frames for a couple of years.  You snooze, you lose.
