Default Re: Center pin reel

Red Owl,

Unless there is something new happening or I have been misunderstanding fly reels for years I think 'center pin' refers to the center shaft or pin that the spool mounts on. I'll be watching this thread for answers. We all have something to learn but I thought all of my reels were of center pin design. I should add that the Hardy lightweight series and all of the Hardy reels that are built on a center shaft / pin design having only pawls for a drag are considered true center pin reels. If you have a disc drag like I have on my Cascapedia 8/9 then it isn't considered a center pin reel, go figure? You could consider a CFO IV spring and pawl reel a center pin reel I believe.
