Hurricane Sandy Update

Post Hurricane Sandy, we still have a lot of reconstruction and repair to do here at the shop.

The bait shop itself is closed for the winter to do those renovations. First time it's ever been closed for the winter!

Our PennParts dept. was back up and running within the first week after the storm, due to the industrious assistance of our friends, family and staff. The parts department will remain open even though the bait shop is closed. Office hours are posted in the online catalog.

Our thanks to everyone for both their help, and continued patience while we recover.

We continue to hope that everyone will be able to repair, heal and thrive after this disaster.

Checkout Problem Solved!

I corrected the problem in the checkout where the shipping and payment method sections were not displaying.

The problem was where users were keying in orders as new customers, but they had either ordered from us before or they had already registered their email in the site with intent to order later.

Normally this would not be a problem, but the "Already Registered" error message with log in link was ALSO not displaying. This has now been corrected!

All customers should now be able to checkout normally.

Spinfisher V Series

Penn's new Spinfisher V series will start releasing between October 2012 and January 2013. I've started by adding the reel spec information to our site. I will add more information such as schematics, photos, etc. as it becomes available.

50 and 50W Schematics updated

50 and 50W Schematics updated

Cleaner grey scale image for the parts drawing now, instead of the old black and white scanned image that was mostly black blobs.

Checkout Revised

I've revised the checkout so that shipping options now display as a list, instead of a drop down menu. This way, all options are easily viewed. Reminder that First Class postal is only available for orders under $50. Orders over $50 will default to our preferred shipper, UPS ground, but can easily be changed to other UPS or Postal Priority Mail or Express mail options.

200M Schematic

200M schematic drawing revised to correctly show key #26 as a screw in bushing, rather than a push in bearing.

30T, 30TW, 50T, 50TW Plate and Clicker

Added some more notes online regarding the plate design change and the key #39A cover screw differences. Also added same notes to the schematics for the 30T, 30TW, 50T and 50TW.

SQL12/SQL15 Squall Star Drag

Our schematics have been updated to reflect small changes (mostly typos) based on Penn's Rev. 3 of the schematics

The only real change that I can see is still likely a typo correction. Key #46 was originally listed as 46-4300 (1183567) and is now listed as 46A-4300 (1183585), and I have confirmed that 46A-4300 is the correct screw for the side plate.

An older note that was already updated in Rev. 2, but I will also mention it here just for reference: On Rev. 0 of these schematics, there was key #39, part #39-525mag2
As of Rev. 2, this part is renumbered key #32A and part #32-310

16VS, 16VSX revisions

Penn has made enough revisions to the 16VS and 16VSX reels that they split the schematics into a BEFORE and AFTER serial #J100001. Both sets of schematics and the newer parts are now available in our system.

SS Series Schematics 4400SS, 4500SS, 5500SS

SS Series Schematics 4400SS, 4500SS, 5500SS have been revised to show the different versions and their parts on the drawing and the parts list. Previously, these were only noted in our catalog as a stop & read notice. Having the information in the schematic will hopefully make it easier to reference and identify.

CV Series Guide - Photo Walk-Thru

I've added to the CV Series Guide in our Reel Repair Guide section of the Penn Parts Dept.. It is now a full walk-thru that should help with repair for most of the CV reels. I may add a few more images to it just to show some of the variations from reel to reel that are not currenlty shown.
