Match Aerial Centrepin Reel No2  (built 1994)

This reel was one of the first I ever made, it’s No2 of a very small run of Match Aerial type centrepin reels. The reel is 4 1/2″ by 3/4″ wide and left hand wind. It has a six spoke construction and fitted with my turn button cam check which I made in the early days along with a 1/2 BP line guard.

The reel is finished in semi gloss black anodise and the fittings are nickel silver plated, finished with real back ebonite handles. This reel is also one of the first to be engraved on the back plate. The reels condition is exceptional for its age of 26 years, it looks as if it has hardly been used. The photos show it’s condition before fully cleaned and serviced.
