Ah ha. The Baja Special is being replaced, then. Pity, I've heard nothing but good about it.
The inventory includes a Torque 300 loaded with solid braid and a Int'l II with hollow 60 that Cal did up, and I can't think of anything I;d do with a Baja Special that I wouldn't do just as well with these reels. Else I'd run out and buy the old one.
Let me clarify: The U.S. Senator 113N is exactly the same as the 113HN Baja Special, except for the color of the frame/spool, and the words "Baja Special" no longer appear. All internal and external parts are interchangeable between the US113N and the 113HN.
The 113W version of the new American made Senator series looks to be a reel our Ulua guys from Hawaii will really appreciate. These folks really liked the old Newell 500 series reels, like the 546 and 550. The 113W covers that size, allowing plenty of line (and long topshot when run with braid - though many guys ran straight mono for the abrasion issues where they fish for those fish). The new reel allows the line capacity needed, but upgrades the weaknesses of the Newells. So, this reel will become popular as an ulua reel. Steve pointed this one out to me, and he's absolutely correct in his assessment.
