SOLD---4 inch wide 1910 Malloch built perfect style reel
2 1/4 inches wide spool
Badged "Forrest adjustable drag reel"
all parts stamped & matching number "5"
Horseshoe spring, pawl and gear are in great shape
Very very beautiful handle
this is a disc drag reel if you want to use it as such
I've just left it disengaged and fished it left handed as tension is equal.
Can be fished left/right like this
reel foot has been filed on one side
This is a very unique reel and is my "brass faced perfect style" reel
I've owned a lot of these but I've never seen another like this one.
The reel has some issues it has a crack on frame where the pitting can be seen on pics.The center screw is snapped off. Reel function is not effected. I've fished this reel hard for over a decade it's awesome -with a little love this reel could be a stunner-I've just fished it like this and never worried about it.
450 USD shipped Can/USA

This unique reel is quite capable of fishing for another 106 yrs.
Even though the center screw is missing the spool does not back off.I've fished it for yrs like this- it's still a solid reel.
400 shipped.

If this weighs 18 to 20 oz (and it looks as if it might), then montanafos appears to be in the market for such a reel... :)

this is a cool reel and the issues(hairline crack,pitting /center screw do not affect reel use at all. The reel fishes and sounds awesome.
