Nice work Sal, did you get the handle off that guy on ebay? I got some ss posts , rod clamp and bolts off him and his work was excellent. i bought 2 of these old beasts for a song a couple of months back and want to get one up and running again.

happy new year in advance to you all.
Thanks Raumati, yes the handle is from the same seller:

Sal:  That back room sure looks cozy.  It would be a nice place to sit and watch the snow come down with a bottle of Zin for company.  Some antipasti and maybe some lasagna. Wink  Dominick

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

 Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer.

I have been concerned about the strength of the post frames on Penns, but to see PENN reintroduce a reel of this size "today" with an all post frame gives me more confidence in my 113h (40 years old) and my 309m(brand new) and I much prefer the original classic look of posts.

Health, I believe that no news is good news from my drs. Smiley

Work is slow and trying to find work to do. Reels, I'm swamped. Too bad I cannot take them to work to work on. Family is great. Taking a few days off since kids are on spring break.

Couldn't have put it better meself Dominick - especially with a season's worth of wood cut and piled outside.
Cracker post Sal, thanks for sharing.
Cheers, Justin

Sal,
I wish I was one of your buddies that you could call me by name. That is a totally awesome upgrade.
You are the Man.
By the way, My Name is Daron.
You really helped me out last year with learning to rebuild these old pieces of fishing history.
I am headed out next week to catch some sharks. Wish me luck!

Sal,
It that sleeve from electra mate? Alan says he doesn't have these. His stops at the 9/0. I would be willing to spring for one of those sleeves. They are 80 bucks on their site. I am assuming the sleeve is the same for the 16/0. I am gearing up to catch some sharks next year and the 14 can Get it done for sure. I frequent Sharks on the Sand.(Not near as much as here) These guys are ate up with it.(Like Me!) My Arsenal will be the Tiburon Extra Wide, A 9/0 with ss sleeve,12 and 14/0. Avets seem the reel to have for this sort of thing, but I'm sticking with old reliable. Makes it more Nostalgic and challenging. I am sure Lee can hook me up with some ss dogs to Double dog it!
Take Care my Friend!
