An extremely scarce Ross "Heritage" Edward Vom Hofe style reel, constructed of german silver and delrin side plates. 2 7/8" diameter with a 1" spool width. LHW retrieve. Near mint condition with some faint marks on the faceplate and some light mounting marks on the foot, but very clean overall. This reel is serial #12 of 27 reels that Ross produced in 1992 (I believe that Len Codella commissioned Ross to make these). The size is roughly equivalent to a Vom Hofe Perfection size 1 though the spool is less dished than the Vom Hofe reels, resulting in a bit more line capacity (it should hold DT4+90 / DT5+50 / DT6+20 or a WF4+120 / WF5+80 / WF6+50). It weighs 6.4 oz. The reel features a seven-position drag setting mechanism on the tail plate, a sliding click switch, two roller pillars, and a sliding oil cap marked "Heritage No.12 E. Vom Hofe". Comes housed in an Arne Mason sheepskin lined leather case.
