Copper on Penn Reels
« on: April 26, 2014, 01:59:31 PM »

I got lucky for Christmas, thanks to my son and his family, and am now the owner of 2 Modified High Speed (6.2 ratio) Okuma Convector 55's for my 300 coppers for this year.

I have 2 Penn 340 GTI's, both in decent shape, and spooled with 400 yards of P-Pro or maybe Stren Braid backing, and 300 yds of 45# copper.  I think the copper is good on both reels.  To replace with new, the setups would probably run about $200 each.

I'd like $100 total for the pair ( that's $50 each ) if anyone is interested.

Sent you a PM Bruno.  Thanks.

Yes, Ryan, those Penns are big and anything with 300 copper is heavy  ;D

I believe 70-80 feet depending on your speed.  I have dragged bottom in 80-90 when turning and not paying close attention.

Maybe 300 FT will hit that...300 yards would dredge the bottom anywhere.

Duh  embarassed()  Didn't realize I put "yards" in my post instead of "feet".  It is yards for the backer and feet for the copper Bruno, if you still want them.

Mike....if it was yards you would be a Ram!   A vessel restricted in your ability to manuever due to the nature of your work because your pulling a fishing apparatus!  LoL.   Unfortunetly trolling lines don't put ya high on the pecking order in the boat world....your just a power driven vessel but 900' of copper should count! Haha

We had to give you sh*t for your mistake grin() I have the non-modified versions of the convectors and clarions. They pick up line extremely quick. Reeling in copper is not painless with these. You will like those reels alot.

There are some guys who fish Michigan and Ontario deep that run 500 and 600 copper, and more.  Not my idea of fun.  No way.  300 catches plenty of fish and for some unexplained reason, "fish on" being yelled doesn't cause anyone to run and grab that rod   tongue()

And hey Captain Big Arn, congratulations  :beer:

Yep, it was really a "duh" moment Ryan.  And I didn't catch on right away.  :kick:
