Does everyone have new reels? Am I the only one that's bassackwards?
Guess I like the old stuff. These are from the '50's and up.

Those are in wonderful shape! Is the South Bend a multiplier? I like the old stuff too. My first nice reel was a South Bend 1122 single action with the burgundy enamel finish.

No multiplier. Just a single action too. The Southbend is the same as a Shakespeare AuSable, or a Kalamazoo Empress. Cool reel.

You can't go wrong with the old American made Medalists. I think I have 4 of them...you can usually pick em up on ebay for cheap and they make great backup or primary reels.

Nice reels guys. I have a couple of shelves filled with vintage fly reels & baitcasters.

Nice to see they all look to be in great condition.

Bulldog is one of the most knowledgable people when it comes to older reels. I'd love to see his collection one day.
