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.
