Sorry for the lack of quality in pictures. I am glad I got them to work though. I think its gotta be the 70s but I am not sure.

WT Bash or Rip Tide will be the source for this. I have several that I got in the 70's and they are different. Goggle the brand and you can find a company history that will explain the different places they were manufactured and the years.

I'm going to guess it is from the mid to late 80's maybe even early 90's

Rip will know. But looks like the knockoff model post 70s. No model # like 1494 etc.

What does it say on the frame just above reel seat ?
If it says "DA" after the model number it was made in Akron, Ohio, from 1966-69
If it says " DA, Made in USA" it was made in Fayetteville, Arkansas between 1970 and 1979

... now we're talking 1960 -1963
Does it actually say Akron Ohio" or just "Akron O, USA"..?
These little differences can be important when trying to date something like this

Okay then
Nice reel, good condition, very collectable, but not real valuable
I saw one the other day going for $35, but yours is much nicer

Yeah its my buddies' we were really just interested in the year. It's the reel he learned to fish on, and the one he still fishes with. So were just curious. So its from the early sixties?
