   A while back, I had posted some shots of some reels I had picked up....one was a 209, that I didn't* think * was anything special...until it was pointed out that it was an "early issue". I went on a search to find some "age appropriate" parts...mainly a handle. The only handle I saw, that was in the ball park, was on another 209....and it, too, looks to be an 'older example", so $31 bucks later, I STILL have a 209 that lacks level wind parts, and a handle, BUT, I have one "complete" to clean up ! In the pix, the "handle less one is the original that I had posted, earlier. Roll Eyes

Nice 209.  I'd be tempted to buy a nice old one like that for the knob alone.

Well, first of the two I picked up is back together, Cal's grease on the drags and gears, ReelX oil everywhere else. I splurged and went for Carbontex drags. This sucker is smooth Smiley

Penn and Pflueger nutjob!

Eyes out for: Pflueger Rocket, vintage 4-1 ratio or better spinning reels (especially metal-bodied and ultralight!)

My favorite scenario, going into a pawn shop or yard sale and coming up with a gem on the cheap....

I spy a 113HL in UNUSED shape behind the counter...USA made....

Price Tag says: "AS IS!! DOES NOT WORK! $29".

Me says: "REALLY, now....as it happens, I know a guy..."

It wouldn't go into gear properly so I suspected some misalignment of the pinion- never been wet, so about impossible to actually be broken, and in any case I know a guy with parts bins Smiley

I crack it open...five yards of mono inside wrapped around shaft...in and out in five minutes and works perfectly...
