The Dirty Six

Six reels were put through the cleaning and tuning test. Fortunately, no parts had to be replaced. Fine tuning a Abu Garcia requires patience and attention to detail. Fine tuning a Penn requires mega everything. Get one thing wrong or miss a step it's back to the beginning.

Penn VS Abu Garcia

Mike brought SharpReel a very nice old collection of Penn and Abu Garcia fishing reels. The two Penn fishing reels are saltwater and the two Abu Garcia fishing reels are freshwater. Mike's fishing reels showed signs of wear from all angles. The Penn Peerless 9 had a broken idle gear, which made the level wind inoperable.
