I've little to no experience with old St Johns but love the way they look. Here's a trout size and a whopper of a salmon size. Any info about them would be cool. Here are the specs... The larger reel... 4" x 1-3/4" frame OD 3-3/8" x 1-1/2" spool OD 12.3oz The number "3" is stamped on the inside plate, the underside of the spool and on the side of the reel foot. The opposite side of the reel foot says "Made in England". There is some minor damage to the outside of the frame (see the photo) but I don't see any cracks. The smaller reel... 3-1/2" x 1-5/16 frame OD 3" x 3/4" spool OD 8.0oz Number "6" stamped in the same three locations. The opposite side of the foot is blank.
