Wolfman just swaped for a Penn 209. The anti-reverse wasn't working so I told him I would take a look at it. I took the reel apart, and I have not seen a reel in such a bad shape before. It looked like it has not had any oil in it since it was new. And there was so much dirt and dust in it. I decided to completely disassemble the reel and boil all the parts and do a good cleaning on it. Well the problem with the anti-reverse was the dog spring was missing. The dog was very worn too. (from the lack of oil) When I started to remove the drag discs they crumbled in my hand. So I ordered him some new parts and lubed and reassembled the reel tonight. Man, I love the way a Penn feels after it has been cleaned and lubed. And with the new drag discs in it, the drag is AWESOME! I am thinking about replacing drag discs in all my older Penns. If you haven't done a yearly maintainance on your reels yet, do it now. Penn reels are super easy to take apart and clean.
