A nice little Pflueger Golden West fly reel, 2 1/2" diameter with a fairly neutral bias that might lean LHW. Good used condition with some normal cosmetic wear, and the handle has some slight wobble to it but is certainly serviceable. The spool width is 7/8". The creme de la creme of the Pflueger reel lineup was and remains the Bulldog-trademarked "Golden West". What makes this reel unique is the aluminum sandwiched between two layers of hard rubber to form the rims. Similar to the Hawkeye, the Golden Wests have nickel silver parts and a hard rubber handle as well. Most of the Golden West reels had a serial number stamped into the hard rubber on the backplate. This one reads "6811". Mechanically, this reel is in good condition with a nice strong fixed click. On/off button works as intended. The hard rubber is slightly faded with no cracks. The reel packs into a blue neoprene pouch.
