can the 209s gear ratio of 3:1 be changed to some thing a little fasteroooh:
not sure about any modifications but the 210s are 4.2;1 a little better than 3;1, got one off ebay for 22$:smile2:
You stole my post lol. I was just thinking the same thing last night when i seen the carbontex drag upgrade. ill look around.
well no luck yet :sad2: i e-mailed a penn specilaty company, that had gear swaps for penn gs reels, to see what they had to say and ill let you know what they had to say when i hear from them.
well i got a quick responce witch is good buisness but bad news.
"Hi Brandon, Penn doesn't make any high speed gears for the 209 reel.I'm not even sure where to point you, I don't remember seeing any custom work for this model." :sad2:
Faster gears in a 209 sounds like you are looking for the 210. 4:1 gears with a bigger drag and handle than the 209 with the same size frame.
thanks guys it looks like i will get some penn 210,s
Hello i own a couple of each of those reels the 209 is a thing of beaty for its intended use winching and it does it quite well . Here in the north east we use them i use my 210 for salmon fishing fast reel with enough capacity but its no 209 , but i quess it all boil down to your preference and what you're comfortable with and thats all that matters at the end of the day . Good Luck
