Thanks for posting that Penn-chron. Love those old adds. Interesting how they were so littoral with their claims.
"Back-lash and Tangled Lines are "total"strangers to these new Far Kast Bay City reels". I'll bet I could backlash onea those without goin way outta my way. That device must cut down on casting distance...

I recently got a Zebco Cardinal 6 from Todd(Hardy Boy) with a tag on the rotor; "SALTWATER PROFF" and my size 4 Zeb. Card. says;" TOTALY CORROSION RESISTANT"on the rotor, which is a little more believable with the word;"resistant",but probably not that accurate.

Fishing tackle is an art form and all fish caught on the right tackle are"Gfish"!

Advertising claims are always a "Pie in the Sky" kind of truth. The Far Kast reels were only marketed a few years. Ocean City must have lost a fortune trying to sell them. Penn was smart enough to not take them past the design phase.
