An early example (1915 – 25) of Allcock’s of Redditch famed Aerial reel. This is the model 7950 – T3. A 12 spoke spool with caliper check, ventilated spool, hollow spindles and brass foot. Solid aluminium back plate with optional check. Xylonite handles may be replacements but they are in fine condition.
The reel spins like a dream (over a minute without polishing and with basic gun oil)
“The most perfect spinning and casting reel ever invented” John Holt-Schooling, courtesy Elwyn Attwood.
A great example to use, and many still do, or add to your collection.
