Penn 710Z Drag Knob
« on: December 28, 2013, 05:26:35 AM »
Been searching high & low for a drag knob for my Penn 710Z (the black one). Do any of you guys have a source for old Penn parts?

Scott's bait and tackle is the king of Penn parts.

They have what you need here:

note that this is not the original, but another penn knob that is a working replacement.

Thanks Jerry. I may end up with the replacement since I cant find an the original. The older Penn reels were great. I realy like green spinfishers. The black ones that came next were pretty good also. I still use a Penn Squidder that my Dad bought in the early 60's - its got a Newell conversion kit on it - great reel. These reel were reasonably priced for the quality you got. I'm not too impressed with all the junk on the market today. It seems that if you want a good reel, your in the $200 & up range. I'm tempted to go on E-Bay & hunt down all the old Penn & Mitchell reels I can find.
