    Just an FYI. For those of you who have been looking for a topless frame for your International, Tiburon now has them available. I think that these are the only ones now as Baker and Accurate no longer make them.
    Thanks to Steve K. for making me aware of this.

    I did my Cofe'd 30S and Cal'd 50S and I really like them.

    Scott,

    I used the same topless Tiburon frames on my Penn 30Ss and 50Ss...easier to fly line a bait, manage line retrieval and lighter overall weight.

    They are a definite improvement!!

    Jeff, I am very pleased. I weighed the options of selling the reels and jumping in on the Makaira craze but I decided to do this upgrade instead and couldn't be happier. I will give them a go on FL Swordfish before I do my next Long Range trip.
    Penn parts are always easier to find IMO and the reels are easy to maintain.

    David, I ordered direct from Tiburon and I think it was $165 for the 50 S. Since I am not in CA, I paid shipping but no tax. I think you can order them also through Charkbait and maybe some other dealers and get free shipping or local pick up, but you will still get stuck with sales tax.
