Default Penn Senator

Ok, so I was dumping some crap in the dumpster at our warehouse today. While throwing the stuff in there, I see the tell tale shine off a Eye under some boxes. Well I pull it out and there is a True Temper Custom Built Ninety Five Model 95-10 5'10" and Perfectly Working Penn Senator 1/0. So with this new find on the back of my truck I headed out. I got home and checked it out. It appears to be fully functional. So I guess my question is...Should I keep this reel? I'm pretty sure I don't want the rod, although it appears to be in fairly good condition. I just really don't have a use for it.

Jeff, that's quite a find.

Almost like the time when I found a computer out in the woods. Cleaned
and dried it out... Ran great for about 2 yrs... Enough of that.

I'm no expert but I can say that the senator models are the cheaper mans
international. I've never seen an international so I can only testify that
they cost a lot more. Either model will last forever. BTW, I didn't say the
senators were cheap!

Ebay will give you a price on what people will pay for the reel. They are
pretty easy to take apart and clean yourself.

I've got 4/0, (2) 9/0 senators... I've had the pleasure of using the 4/0
a few times and it is a great trolling setup. There is no level wind
function on the senator models so you have to use your thumb to
even out the line on the spool. Not a big deal once you get used to it.
If someone else picks it up they may have a problem...

I'd get some lube and take it apart and clean it. You'll be ready when
the season starts!

If your striper fishing you don't need anything bigger than a 113h Penn, If you got a lot of money to spend ,than get a International In the old days they didn't have them . Only senators.

Looks like it might be a good reel for bass on the boat.

Sudsy my favorite Penn. on a boat is the 500 Jigmaster. It is lighter than a 113h and the nice thing about it is that you can change spools by twisting the side plate very easy. Use the metal spool. I have been using them for 40 years. The only time I use the 113h, is if a need more line where I'm fishing.

True that.
But the question wasn't what reel to get, it was will a Penn Senator 1/0 that was scored for free work as a striper reel.

The answer is definately yes and that was a heck of a sweet find
