Neither actually. It looks similar to the Allen reels though, especially from the reel side at that angle, but the machined cuts are different on the reel, spool design is different, arbor is larger, weight is different, etc. But, I still love the good guys at Allen.

It's just a Cabelas 11' 6 wt switch rod I got as a gift. Actually casts pretty good for a cheaper rod.

I really love this old, classic reel. Anyone able to identify it or know anything about it? It has absolutely NO markings, numbers, or anything on it anywhere.

It was my father-in-law's father's reel. He thinks it is from the late 60's. There is a mysterious rectangle on the back that I'm thinking used to have an insert with the brand name or model on it. As you can see, I haven't cleaned it up yet. It's all metal except the reel knob. I'm betting this old reel has helped catch many a fish...

I knew someone here would know! Good eye!

I looked up some information on it and it fits what I had heard. Made in the late 1960's, originally machined and made in Germany, then later made by casting in Japan. From the pics I saw, looks as though there are two different center pieces on the spool, with this one being less common.

Thanks for helping me out! I appreciate it!
