We're proud to have been named Newell's largest retailer again this year (2009, 2010). We stock more models, more gear ratios, more colors than any other dealer, and we've helped supply more reels to clients worldwide than any retailer. No smoke and mirrors, no false promises, we offer the best deals on the best gear, and we guarantee it.

That was then, and this is now:

Caution - while we have been proud to represent Newell for many years, the firm changed hands after Carl's passing. The new owner had great plans for the future of this well respected firm, however he ran into difficulty launching the product line. At the present time we have NO reels in stock, with no firm answer from the factory about when or what we might see for the future. So, at this point, Newell is indeed history and the trick now is to keep these great reels running. We've seen several companies step into this void, and we hope to see more parts become available based upon consumer requests.


Newell Bearing Caps

Here's another excellent new product for those old school Newell fans. A log of folks have a great attachment to their Newell reels, and a bit of sadness that they are still not up and running. Maybe one of these days they will be... But, for those lucky enough to own one, some parts upgrades are available such as the frames that Tiburon is producing. Well, this week we have two new products designed to add some luster to your prized fishing companion. Over the years Newell had a few series of reels, some more favored than others, but all were very fishable pieces. One part that folks wanted to upgrade whether for cosmetic or functional reasons were their bearing caps and cups. The caps are shallower, the cups. Some of the Newell reels used a plastic cap which could be a problem in and of itself. Well, two firms have come forward with upgrades for us.

Tiburon has a nice stainless steel bearing cap. Just the cap and O ring, and it runs $20. Reel Speed has produced two products, both from Titanium: a Bearing Cap with shims and a Bearing Cup with shim washers and O rings 2 supplied. These run $18 and $20 respectively. If you are uncertain which ones are correct for your use, you may wish to contact John at our Huntington Beach shop or Mike at our San Diego location.

GLOBAL PRECISION
Taking things a few steps further, with Newell still gone we've had folks asking about a few other parts for these wonderful reels. We now have a source for Newell Gears for the 200/300/400 series reels, more bearing options, and even gear kits for Penn Jigmasters and 112's (which Newell used to provide). These new gears are even better than what Newell used to offer, and they represent a very nice enhancement for these reels. Same story for the Penn products, 5:1 on the Jigmasters is a very nice thing. The gears are made from hardened 304 Stainless Steel.

We've recently added more parts for upgrading and maintaining your classic Newell reel: another source for Stainless Steel Bearing Caps and Shims, Stainless Steel Tension Washers, Stainless Steel Handle Washers and Stainless Steel Drag Washers.

Tiburon Components
Upgrades for Newell Reels!

We've long been fans of the fishability of Newell reels. Unfortunately, since Carl Newell's passing the firm has been in flux. The new owner did not have the resources to continue the tradition, and manufacturing ceased. That may change in the future under hoped for new ownership, but for now we have something that's going to please anyone who owns a Newell reel!

Finally the guys from Tiburon have come to the rescue of those of us who desired upgrades of Newell reels. Specifically, they have now produced (or are in the process of producing) several much wanted upgrades! For the 200 and 300 series reels, you now have an excellent machined aluminum frame! There's even more to be excited about! They've produced a frame for the 440 and 533 series reels, and there's a new narrow version 533!!! For our Ulua guys. Tib will soon have a machined aluminum spool available for the 454, as well as a frame.  Further the new 550 frame and spool will be excellent additions to the reels our Hawaii guys love so much.
