Just like the original Deluxe Trout Reels made then, these earlier reels were made with Black Delrin side plates, polished stainless steel protective side bands and 12% nickel silver fittings. The spool, foot (with VH hole) and serpentine handle are aluminum alloy. The entire reel is hand polished. These reels were the first to feature the now time proven rotor and caliper disc drag system utilizing oil impregnated cork calipers, and a floating rotor disc for an ultra smooth drag, as is currently used in the Deluxe II version. Drag adjustments are set via lever control with 9-detent settings. Additionally the reel has a preset gear & pawl drag for controlling spool overrun when light disc drag settings are made. This also contributes to the great sound of the reel when a fish makes a strong run. Deluxe design disc drag reels have been in service since 1990 world wide, performing trouble free on steelhead rivers of the Pacific Northwest to Atlantic salmon rivers in eastern Canada, Iceland, Russia and Norway. The reel comes with its original hand crafted, fitted hard leather case made exclusively for Joe by Arne Mason of Ashland Oregon. Arne's materials and craftsmanship are second to none, and are a distinctive addition to a proven and much respected reel. It has been fished sparingly showing very light use and remain in near mint condition. Left Hand Wind Only. N/M. $2350.00.
