Used Penn 130's...how much of a risk?
Just wanted to drop an update. I picked up two Penn 80 STW's yesterday north of Bangor. They are on 80 class penn rods. Going to have them checked out at a shop and respooled, but they look in excellent condition. Can't wait to try them out and with luck, hook up. I also picked up 3 survival suits and a 2010 epirb that he had and wouldn't be needing.

I have a bit of GBT history having started fishing for them in 1974. With the advent of the Spectra-type lines, the need for a 130 class reel for any fishery really went away (though I'm sure that someone will argue the point for some special purpose use). I prefer Penn because, if there is a reel repair facility in any tuna port, they'll be able to quickly put a failed International back in order. The two-speeds have proved themselves to be durable over the decades.
As you know, the EPIRB has to be re-registered and you may want to have it looked over (by a manufacturer-approved service facility) despite its not necessarily having reached its service interval. Regards the survival suits, check them thoroughly (here's a good link). I've used beeswax with success on zippers but the most important thing is to practice - your entire crew should be able to don a survival suit in a minute or less.
Penn Fishing Tackle Manufacturing Company is an American manufacturer of fishing tackle, primarily known for fishing reels and rods.
Otto Henze, immigrated to the United States from Germany in 1922. At 25, he worked as a machinist for the reel manufacturer Ocean City Manufacturing Company of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In 1932, Henze rented a 3rd floor loft on 492 North Third Street in Philadelphia from a general machinist firm, William Schmitz & Company. There he completed his first two reel designs, the Models F and K.
In February 1933, the first Penn Reels were sold to the Miller Auto Supply Company in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Encouraged by the sales, Henze developed two more designs. Privation during the Great Depression forced families into subsistence fishing, aiding company growth. In 1942, Penn Reels moved to West Hunting Park Avenue. Upon Henze's death in 1948, his wife Martha assumed the company presidency. Penn Reels grew from a regional presence to a world leader in the years that followed.
The Penn Model F was a surf reel designed for distance casting. It had bakelite side plates and weighed twelve ounces. This model was a surf reel used mainly for surf fishing. The similar Model K added a lever actuated free spool and durable metal reinforced plates. It was offered with and without a star drag. An adjustable bearing allowed the spool be tightened to prevent backlash.
In 1933 the Model F was renamed the Sea Hawk, the basic Model K the Bayside, and the Model K with star drag the Long Beach. The choice of coastal Atlantic and Pacific cities for the former K models reinforced their connection to saltwater fishing.
In 1936, a revolutionary new reel was introduced to catch the most challenging game fish, the Senator. Immediately successful, it led to numerous fishing records being set, and remains popular, known for its high quality and dependability. It featured high speed stainless pinion gears for taking in line faster and was well adapted to the extra demands of professionally guided charter fishing.
In 1938, an exceptional surf casting reel, the “Squidder”, was introduced. It too became highly popular with anglers and charter boating. Many remain in use.
Penn Reels hold a unique place in saltwater fishing reels, with over 1,400 International Game Fish Association (IGFA) world records being set using them. Over 220 different models are manufactured today. Their signature reel remains the Penn Senator, the Jig Master also being popular, signature rods the Penn Power Stick and Tuna Stick
In 2006, Penn’s Torque reel was named the America Sport fishing Association’s Saltwater Reel of the year.
In 2003, the Penn Fishing Reels Company was acquired by rival tackle companies Sea Striker Inc. and Master Fishing Tackle. It was acquired in 2007 by K2 Sports. Jarden acquired K2 Sports and added Penn Reels to its Pure Fishing portfolio of fishing tackle manufacturers and marketing companies. Newell Brands took control of Pure Fishing when it acquired the Jarden Corporation in April 2016. In January 2019, Penn Reels, together with associated companies forming Pure Fishing, was sold by Newell Brands to Sycamore Partners for $1.3 billion.

the russian north is an endless snow-white napkin, crumpled with hills of khibiny mountains and giant snowdrifts. the treeless landscape here makes everything flat and all human manifestations seem to strive to overcome this flatness: striped pipes of factories soaring up into the sky, soviet «copy-paste» apartment blocks and power line towers stick out of the ground, as if the rest of the map is still rendering. some ghostly powers rework the scenery behind your back. some giant mashed a car with its mighty fist and stuck on a pole at the entrance to a secret military base, perhaps as a warning to the soldiers. a herd of car tires migrating south along the snowy slopes freezes at you glance. somewhere in the distance there is the world’s northernmost mcdonald’s. mind your step as you wade to it.
nikel, monchegorsk, kirovsk – northern cities which are rarely an object to the touristic admiration. not only the severe nature makes these cities similar to each other, but also the fact of rapidly declining population size. these cities are turning into abandoned spots in the endless northern landscapes. with the polar days and nights, you start to mess up the cycles and every day seems to last forever. snowstorms in may make you not forget you came to the north and the mountains look like reliable guards for those who have not left the towns yet.
the locals are involved in their normal routines while being caught playing billiards, visiting a patriotic holiday, or just quietly walking along the embankment. they seem to be proud of living in the north but experiencing melancholy at the same time. ‘i don’t have summer clothes at all, i used to have but for now i just don’t need it,’ says the saleswoman at the street kiosk. ‘people here do not go out so often, we only have one café around the corner’, and not to forget the northernmost macdonald’s in the world in the russian capital of arctics – murmansk. the street kiosk, billiard table and all this snow-white mountain range were just 200 kilometers aways from there.
