My two son's each recently received an unused Penn Senator 6/0 114h from a visiting friend from the US. Apparently they were aquired from the son of a guy who prior to his death some years ago had a small fishing shop. Both are spotless and I suppose that makes them the same as brand new. The one is still in its original box with all the packaging intact. It has a yellow handle while the other (I imagine is newer) has a black handle. I will add the photo's below. The question I have is whether the reel in the box has any special collectors value as they want to spool line onto their reels and go fishing! Be glad of any advice

Sorry about the multiple post - the webpage was hanging when I try to load the images and I hit the post button twice. Don't know how to delete the other post:?

Apart from being collectors pieces, Bass Pro shops sell them bran new as 2015 models.

The problem in SA is that Penns are not marketed correctly and hence all the Japanese stuff takes preference. It's similar to the Bells whisky debacle, Scotts say they've never heard of it, they drink Grouse or Macallen.

I was bringing in new Penn 114 6/0's and selling them on the side to supplement my income as they are the real deal Tuna reel, definitely outlive the owner, never mind the Japanese reels.

Some young pup on Sealine piped up that he can get these reels anywhere in SA for a few hundred rand and that I was taking a chance selling mine for R4000, and stuffed up my sales.

I think they cost about R5500.00 now at Bass Pro with the exchange plus delivery from US with USPS.

I still use 2 sets of the 114H reel with the 114 rod on my boat. I use 100 pound braid and lock a big yellowfin tight.

Brand new at $145 and at the current very high currency that amounts to R2250.

I would deduct 30% on that price if I had to buy a new one from someone whom did not use it.

But for the reels in according to the picture you are posting (obviously very old if you look at the packaging)I would at best be willing to pay R1000 and that is if they have never had line on them.

This is only my opinion and I am no expert.

Hope this helps and that another member or 2 can give an opinion.

Senators where probably the most popular big game reels of their time who knows what the total sales figure for them are. For anything to be a collectors item it has to be scarce, quirky, or a really low serial number or form a limited production line. Your reel would look nice in a bar but nobodies going to break out their cheque book for it I'm afraid.

I was buying a lot of stuff from the states and even with the exchange rate it's still reasonable compared to local prices, that's for all tackle including electronics.

For about the last year and a half I can't get cheapest shipping options from the US because of parcel loss at our local postal services, so a reel costing R2500 for example gets a $130.00 shipping charge in express/priority post including insurance.

In addition to small items, I wasn't getting charged anything at the post office. On my last 15 collections, I've had to pay in, even if the item was from China with free international shipping.

I'm a keen fan of the older design penn's although the newer model 6/0 114H narrow spool is quite a machine of note.

Hi Guys
Thanks for the prompt replies. Much appreciated! Decided they dson't need to be on the mantlepiece and should rather be doing what they were designed for so took them down to Kingfisher and had them spooled with 21kg line (hope that was the right choice). Put on 500m and it only looks half full!
