Senator Schematic Revisions 10/12/13

Did a little bit of house cleaning this afternoon and tidied up some of the Senator schematics that I've been meaning to get to, as I was already in one of them to fix an error with the rings.

Cleaned up the language, replacing right and left with handle and non-handle sides, to clear up confusion.
Worked on 114's, 114H's, 114HLW's and the LH models for those numbers.

Older Senator Schematics updated

Older Senator schematics updated with notes about the old outside access drags and the older, thicker drag washer stacks, where applicable. I didn't add notes to the 110 or 111, as I think those had leather washers rather than the thicker asbestos/fiberglass washers, and never had the outside drags, to my knowledge at this time. I added notes about these older parts to the oldest version of schematic that we had for each model.
    Schematics/versions updated:
    113 with Posts
    113H with Posts 1989
    113HL with Posts 1989
    113HLW with Posts 1989
    114 with Posts
    114H with Posts

Contact Form and Advanced Search Revised

Contact Form

If you have sent us a message via the contact form at between July 14th and 19th, and have not received a reply, please do contact us again. The form stopped working due to a change on the mail server side, causing messages to be delivered 3 days later, or not at all. The new form has been tested and appears to be working fine.

Advanced Search

I have added an additional Google site search box to the Advanced Search page, to allow for searching of the webpages in the site.

Schematic Updates

Revised the Senator 111 with some adjustments (clamp/stud corrections, added correct # of post screws to drawing, etc)

I have been updating ALL of our schematics so that the drawings are a printable size without having to reduce or enlarge the image size. I have about 25% of the files left to fix. After that, there shouldn't be any printing formatting issues.

704 and 706 Spinfishers are making a comeback!

Per Penn's Facebook page:

PENN Fishing March 29.
Progress continues at the factory....704/706Z are being brought back due to popular demand. No changes will be made to the design of the reels....we want to have complete consistency between new and old reels so that parts interchange. More details to follow next week.

Reel Repair

We are reopening our reel repair department and are now accepting reels for repair. Thank you all for your patience while repair was unavailable due to complications from Hurricane Sandy.

66, 67 and 68 Longbeach Schematics

Updated the 66, 67 and 68 schematics to show the correct number of posts, post screws and post holes. Apparently, Penn's been using the same drawing for the last 60 years or so, for 60 thru 68, but only 60 and 65 have 4 posts, while 66 thru 68 have 6 posts.

As of January 27th, USPS All Postal Rates Changed

These are the USPS's rate increases, not ours. Our handling fees have remained the same.

First class rates went down, which is nice for the majority of our customers who place smaller orders.
Priority Mail also appears to have dropped a few cents.

Canada Priority Mail Small Flat Rate Box International went up $3.00
All other international locations, Priority Mail Small Flat Rate Box International went up $7.00
