    Looking for a couple rarer items that I've been unable to locate elsewhere. First is a converted or a conversion kit to narrow a Newell 533. The second is a yo's narrow converted or kit to narrow a penn 16s. I don't know if any other manufacturers made a narrow kit for the 16s if they did I'd be interested in one of those. I had these items at one time but at the time had to sell them as bills were more important than fishing gear and would like to replace them. If you have anything or have any leads where I might find them I would appreciate the info.

    I have seen that reel man can do the narrowing but would if possible like to find a tib kit. I haven't actually called tuburon yet but was in contact with someone that goes by chowderpuff on eBay and he no longer has any and said tib has dq'd that item. The bigger one for me is the 16s kit. I know there's very few out there shoot if I could even just get one to have a machinist friend of mine copy that would be awesome. I'd probably have him make a few though lol. I know there's other stuff out there that fits the bill but I always liked the way both those reels felt in my hands and if possible would like to replace them.

    Not the answer you're looking for, but as a side note, Okuma acquired Tiburon many years ago I believe.

    I've been looking recently and none have popped up. I contacted chowderpuff the guy moving almost all the tib kits on eBay and he has none and said since their dq'd he won't be getting more. I'll continue to watch but thought I'd try he too. The big one is the penn 16s kit I know that ones gonna be a tough one to come by. Thanks for the responses so far.
