    I'm hoping someone here has an old Penn 525 mag that they don't need anymore.I have tried to buy one on OfferUp a couple of times, but both times the seller flaked on me.

    I have a couple of the new Fathoms, and I love them, but I wouldn't mind owning an old Penn Mag that I can keep in my trunk as a back up in case, god forbid, something happens to one of my girls (Fathoms).

    Shoot me a PM with a price if you have one. Thanks.

    Like the 525 that I have , still a very functional tool . If you did not mind a little larger format , the 535 is pretty much the same reel . I was able to get the Factory Penn mag side plates in the UK on Flea bay , for both the 535 and 545 I have . Made in USA and knobby type Mag . Penn produced all 3 sizes but only marketed the larger ones in the UK and Europe . Just an option . Fat Spottie had one for sale very recently as well maybe he still has it . WR

    Thanks Ritchie. I will keep an eye out for those.

    Werfless You wouldn't happen to have a Penn 146 (narrow squidder) laying around in that tackle cave of yours, would you? I'm kind of in the mood again to refurbish/hot rod an old reel.

    I don't have one. Was wondering if you considered a squall 15. The squall 15 is the US market version of the 525 mag mark II. I've seen those 2nd hand or on clearance.
