Jigmasters are still available today
as "new old stock" in some tackle shops, but Penn no longer makes them. The Jigmaster features "one
screw take apart" and is easily disassembled with no tools for spool changes or maintenance. This reel
is still popular today with surf fishermen. Jigmaster's were also produced as a "high speed" model, number 505HS.
The fourth picture shows the left side plate on two Jigmasters - the left (red) side plate with
no engraving is on a newer Jigmaster than the burgundy one on the right.
The last picture is from Penn Catalog Number 22, which is
thought to be from around 1960.
