Here's some shots of the Bronson. It is exactly what I had hoped for -looks like it has never even been put on a rod and is smooth as silk. It doesn't seem like an 'old reel' at all, more like something I got at the store.

Does anyone know when these were made?

Here's some photos:

Here are photos of the Browning Silaflex reels, a model 1230 and the slightly larger 5230. I've shown a disassembled reel so you can tell if all the parts are there (don't lose the clear plastic washer!).

The reel is almost bullet proof. But ... that little medallion with the seahorse popped off (fixed with superglue). And, I didn't leave the click spring alone and it was brittle. $%!# Help!

Bulldog, where would I find 0.090" x 0.025" spring stock?

are you sure about that size? - that's gigantic

a Young spring is 0.070 wide.

Try www.cortlandline.com call the customer service, ask for reel repairs and tell them you want a pair of springs for a Marquis 10

I always use a spanish cedar block to spread the spring and drive it off the stanchion.

be warned that Hardy springs are also brittle. I have radiused spring pliers to bend them.

You can also try www.micromark.com for spring strips.

We can get it working, though. If all else fails, we can shape something out of some the nickel piano wire I have around.

Earlier in the thread, Scud Dog stated "the Shakespeare Alpha. Can anyone name a reel that's crappier than the Alpha?" While I've never handled one, the Alpha sure is ugly. Perhaps prize winning ugly.

Second prize in the ugly contest should go to the reel below, the Cortland C-G-Graphite I. It's crappy too - made of graphite filled plastic and lightweight castings. Even the drag pawls are plastic! But it does have a very redeeming feature. It only weighs 2 1/8 ounces. And it holds the WHOLE DT3/4/5 line - with backing.

Of course, the immediate question is "why own such an ugly thing?"

Did someone say plastic?

Too bad about the plastic innards on this BFR reel because the metal casting body is nicely made.

Received my Supreme 1834 over the weekend. Very nice little reel. I'll get some photos up before too long.

In the hunt for a spring for my Browning, I was contacted by Bill Archuleta. He was nice to e-mail me some photos of his line of fly reels (and gave me permission to post them here). Everything is hand machined in his non-CNC shop, right down to the screws. Bill says he has about 60 hours of his time into each of his reels. To be honest, I'm afraid to ask the price!

The two smallest reels in the photo have non-adjustable click pawl drags. The smallest is 2 5/8" and will hold a WF3 with a little backing. Lovely, isn't it!

Very nice reels and I would agree probably more $ than I could throw at a reel right now.

here's a good deal on a big reel - this Daiwa was made by JW Young in the 90s.

That drives me wild how the ORVIS reels always fetch a lot more than the reel with the manufacturer's name on it. You can get most any Beaudex or Pridex for less than that Young made Orvis Bulldog's showing us. I have a Beaudex with the belt buckle lineguard (like that Orvis) and I'd be thrilled to get $60 for it!

speaking of which, here's a cool collectable - it's a Black Martin 65 marked as Orvis Beginner

The "Orvis Beginner" looks like a single clicker. Not much different than a Bronson Royal-360. I had a NIB Orvis Madison that was the smallest of the Pflueger Medalist. It looked nicer than the black Pflueger Medalist. So there's JW Young; Martin; Hardy; Pflueger ... Wonder which other reels Orvis has slapped their logos on?

Way WAY back when, Orvis made their reputation selling their patented, ventilated spool, fly reel. Yet, it appears they haven't made their own reels for years. I guess Orvis was an early adopter of outsourcing. :\

my first reel was an Orvis 1910, which is a black Martin 67A, in a combo with a 7-1/2' Fullflex A

other makers? Hardy and BFR

I found this reel at an estate sale this weekend. Here's what it looks like when I pop off the spool. Those are long, skinny springs in there.

long coil springs

who's the maker? Is it marked by any chance as Farlow's?

BTW, you should only have one of those pawls engaged. As it's sitting, the left pawl is LHW and the right pawl is RHW
turn the other to where it's pointing straight out

It's an STH Airwieght. I'll fiddle with the pawls as you noted -- I've never had a click & pawl reel with 2 pawls before. Thanks.

p 2 of this thread has the MG-3
p 4 has the LM 45 (equivalent of Browning Strata MZ34)
there are several other Martins scattered through there, but I have two NIB M67As sitting around with no photos ...
I also have a couple of LL Bean Angler (No1. and No. 2) which are their version of the skirted spool MG-7 but with two different spool widths)

Ron,

What do the 67A's go for and would you be interested in selling one? Thanks, Martin
