Title: SHAKESPEARE 2410
Post by: basto on July 17, 2019, 04:48:32 PM
The guy I bought this reel from bought it in 1974.
This 2410 is one of4 reels in the 2400 series. They are 2400, 2410, 2430 and 2450.

The switch for anti reverse is simple , metal, and the lettering is fade proof, just like the badging on the body.

The anti reverse pawl stops the pinion gear.

The drag is oiled felt and is very smooth.

The pivot for changing to left hand wind is stored in part of the handle. I find this is an excellent idea, considering all of the pivots that Idid not get with other brands of reels that I have bought.(lost I assume)

I also like the skirted spool. If this reel had a bronze main gear, it would be even more desirable.

I don't know why my photos are oversize. Just did the usual procedure.

If anyone can reduce them a little it will show more stuff you can't see now. Or maybe its just showing like that on my computer????

Yes Tommy. Very happy with this one. I plan to use it with 12lb mono.

and I just found that you can move the photos left, right, up or down by clicking on them and using your keyboard arrows to move them.

   Thanks for the look inside that one Greg...been curious about those. Looks like a solid design...one of the decent 70's reels. Check the sizing on the pics you uploaded, some of them must have got increased during the process. I've had it happen too.

Yes, I did go back into Photo Bucket but could not work out how to scale them down.
