12$ Cobra Farlow.

This reel had both cosmetic, and performance issues. Cosmetics were worse than desired, Loose rivets, and non functioning pawls.

Thanks Casey! It was actually shot last July, as was this clip in the same spot, but from above the little falls. This one shows all the rock scrapage on the frame from clambering around. I've been diggin' round the video catacombs and found these. milt.

That picture up above looks like a perfect match! I don't think there is a sole on this site that would be able to break up that pairing. Is it the Allen?

yes, Its an Allen Trout I. I dont think Im going to be able to to leave it on there. I will probably order a Cabela's WLx to go on the rod that it came off of.
