I think after 22 pages, this thread has lost its way.
IMO, tt was never intended to be a voting thread, but an introduction and enlightenment thread, to inform forum members what they might find out there to match up with their old or new glass rods, or maybe even their cane rods.
An information archive - a catalog of sorts - and will admit it had its greatest value when good auction buys could be found on ebay.
IMO, the random voting posts detract from the thread value, obscuring the information in random opinion.
Find something that's not on the thread? Put it on the thread, photos preferred.
Here's a reel often overlooked, almost always under-priced, lightweight, wonderful adjusting in both directions click-pawl, and hasn't been made since the mid-30s.
Meisselbach-Catucci Symploreel. After Bronson bought them out, Allcocks bought the bakelite molds and had JW Young build the reel with their click-pawl and of course their name, the Aerialite.
Either or both reels I mentioned may already be on the thread, but giving an example.
