Default Re: Thomas & Thomas "trophy" reel made by ross

Hi all,

I thought I'd post a couple of scans from old T&T catalogs. The first is from the 1987 catalog, which was the first year T&T offered this reel. The second is from the 1989 catalog and is included because it is slightly different.

You may also recognize the Regal reel. It was marketed as unique for its multiple drag inputs. I never saw one in a shop or strapped to a rod.

Back to the reel of topic,...I was interested in the Ross S version about that time period and asked the staff at a large and well known shop about it. None had heard of it, despite it being a cataloged item. Oh well, never saw one of those either!
