Default old penn squidders

i found 2 penn suidders and 2 6 ft garcia boat rods in my dads basement this weekend. he had the reels refurbished by penn 1-2 yrs ago. this stuff is probably 20 yrs old. should these do the trick for tube n in a few weeks?

Without some specs I can't comment on the rods. Garcia made a lot of different boat rods in their day.
The Squidders are great reels that you can do just about anything with. My favorite reel is a Newelized 146 (narrow spool) Squidder that does double duty as a boat and beach casting reel. Casts a mile :shock:

I still have about four of them. I put dacron on them with about 10 ft. of mono. With the tube I love them The outher reels I use are jigmaster 500 I like them the best because you can change the spools fast. undo the screw and give it a half twist and the spool comes right out. .You can put lead on another spool, and have extra spools ready to go . Some of my friends like the penn 113h but I think they are to heavy. I have 3 of them but I only use them, when I am into big fish or have to put out a lot of line to get down deep. I have wire on them.

Default thanks

thanks. i'm trying to figure out what the best setup is for me. i'm a little nervous with wire b/c i've heard it can nest on you pretty easily. most of my experience is on spinning reels. will braided be easier to manage than wire and are dacron and braided line similar? do dacron and braided line sink like wire. i'll be going to red tops to get these 2 lined up tommorow probably. i'm hoping they will steer me in the right direction.

When you go to Red Top just tell what your planning to do . Wire line can nest up on you easy, if I were you I would start with leadcore. I have about 10 colors on my reels but just tell them where you planing to fish and they set it up On the squidder I use braided dacron. Because it is a smaller reel. But I do put it on my 500 Jigmater and my 113h Penn.

The best thing you can do for your Squidder is to upgrade to the Newell bars and base and to either the Newell spool or the penn aluminum spool - NOT the chrome steel spool. The chromed spool is very heavy and the inertia from the weight will cause a lot of overruns.
The upgraded bars and base will square the reel perfectly, something I can guarantee is not the case with the reel now.
Proof: take the base (foot) off, put it on a flat surface and tap the corners - it's not going to be perfectly flat (stamped steel never is) The twist in the foot is magnified through the whole reel slowing it down considerably.

Once you do the bar and base upgrade the reel will be so fast you'll want to do a mag upgrade to slow it down (which is why you want an aluminum spool) but that's a whole 'nuther thread.

The dark maroon is a plastic spool.
