Vintage J W Youngs Beaudex 4 inch diameter with narrow drum.
'Aftermarket' added agate line guide
Spool is virtually pristine, cage has good honest wear from use
No wobble, no cracks, no line burns, no corrosion.
Perfect & original spool release mechanism
Only one point is one of the two pawls show a little wear at tip.
3" reel foot - original, held with 3 screws (solidly), but a little 'thick' at ends, so may 'prefer' a more accommodating reel seat!
Capacity - will take 100+ yds 20lbs micron backing, and a full 40yd #7 WF Spey line, so should be able to accommodate any running line & head you would wish to use
