this is not a rebuild post, but just a short post to show off a little. a guy sent over a beautiful old 113h with an accurate frame and side plate kit. it's been a while since i put one of these together.



they're really not hard to do, just a little tedious. still, it's rare for me to find one already put together that doesn't have some small issue, a screw in the wrong place, or something. i wanted this one to be perfect! so the bearings were all lubed, all the screw holes and non-exposed metal surfaces had a light coating of grease, used all stainless hex head screws for the side plate, switched out the brass yoke for a stainless steel one that i had left over, shimmed the gear sleeve, greased the drag washers and installed an oversized pete kolekar handle on a penn international 30 arm.



i checked the drag on a scale and broke the line at 25#'s. this reel will easily fish straight 50# mono at 15#'s of drag, or straight 60# mono at 18#'s of drag. it also had 30 seconds of freespool after just a gentle spin. it's a little tight right now, but will loosen up nicely after a couple of albacore or yellowfin tuna. yes, it's old school, but i still believe that, for what it costs and what it does, the penn 113h remains the best value on the market today.

oh, and bob, your reel is ready......

Gorgeous reel, Alan, but either you have very small hands or that handle belongs on my boat winch! Wink

i'm a firm beliver in big handles! i like accurate and tiburon frames, but i'm not big on aftermarket side plates. a stainless steel gear sleeve is a must! larger handles are good as well. i have an aftermarket handle for the newell. the jigmaster handle will not fit. alan
