I took this photo with the intention of showing my buddy the cool color of backing I ordered from Jim Teeny's company a couple weeks ago, turned out kind of neat...

Default The Americans;

More reels to love from you guys. That's a nice Perfect there, agate line guard?

I did some pictures of the ones I grew up with.

This Pflueger 1492 1/2 went with a Lami Flex 5.5' glass rod that was my first brookie rig. It shows the wear and I liked the line guard but not the right hand wind. They are right hand only......

The 1495 DA was the upgrade from an Olympic in 1977, I no longer have the Olympic reel. This was a good all round fly reel that finished its work for me as my Pike reel.

Next up a Martin #63, a simple on / off clicker. very light and people would do well to look to these as 2 - 3 weight reels for really light rods.

This reel is posted way back on the early pages of the thread but I did a better job of showing it here. This is the somewhat rare Martin MG-3. These were the American Hardy Featherweight. They have a unique drag setup that provides an excellent range of tension from high to low. They were among the lightest reels available in the 2 - 3 - 4 line range and one of the only Martin Lightweights with a machined aluminum reel foot. The foot is also ported in 4 spots to reduce weight. I'll guess the weight at 2.5 ounces or a hair under.

The MG-3 is a very good lightweight fly reel and they made a fancy version of this also. The LTD model was with a black finish and a nicer foot and latch hub if I recall. The plain Jane like I have will sell at or around 50 - 80 dollars on any given day on auction and the LTD ones go for up to 125 if & when they are for sale. Nice American fly reels.
