    Wayne,

    That one is in beautiful condition especially considering it's crossed the pond - twice!
    Itis easy to see the Pflueger lineage in the handle, reelfoot, etc.
    Nice score!

    I recently found a Stuart reel to mount of my Horrocks-Ibbotson Buddy solid glass rod.

    Nice find Dave! I've got a couple of Stuarts that I've yet to photograph...if I remember right that model is one of them.

    Cool. I like the black face on yours. That would look sharp on my Buddy too but I think I still would prefer my all silver one as the blank on the Buddy is the same color.

    I don't fish it. A friend of mine in Florida gave it to me. if i were to put it to use it'd pair it with a Heters 8'6" fiberglass rod I started with years ago.

    That would be a nice pair if you did.

    That has to be the sexiest photo spread of an Oren-o-matic I've ever seen! :)
    The tip of the lever looks like it is jewel encrusted.
