Re: Thomas & Thomas "trophy" reel made by ross
Thomas and Thomas marketed several Ross and Sarcone reels through the years. I believe the "Trophy" was identical to the old very early "Ross Reel". Does it have a solid backplate with large teardrop shaped perforations on the spool? It was a pretty decent reel with a good drag, I know guys who used them striper fishing. Ross still services them for reference. Later they marketed their own version of the Gunnison, one of the standards in trout reels for years. Could you post a picture? The Sarcone T & T reels are worth big bucks, but the Ross reels go for about the same money as a use Ross from the same period.
