Default Re: Question on Fin Nor no.3 reel

This, the Florida built "wedding cake" Fin-Nor is the first reel to use a cork disc drag, draw-bar design. It is the grandaddy of todays Abels, Tibors and Islanders. It and Seamaster started the designed for big game saltwater fly fishing thing as we know it today. You deffinetly have a collectors item which though not common are not that rare either. So it has real (reel?) value but you won't send your kid to college on it. Were it my grandfather's I would keep it as a family heirlom and I might fish it occasionally too.
