    Shite... Finger slip in the header. This is a 3 7/8" reel.

    Got this it a while back but needed to send it to Bill A. to work his magic. Now it's tight and smooth as a new reel, ready to go another 100 years!

    The check on this thing sounds so good... Can't wait to hear it sing on a summer-run!

    Thomas, that's a particularly nice one - rare color on that line guard for a hardy.
    I'm partial to the red jewelry myself as well.

    Beautiful old reel. And I thought I had something special in my two thirty year old Zeniths.
