We need to recall — that after the last War — They brought out the SW68, 250, 260, 228, 238, 248, 240, 245, 280, 285, 270, 275.  Few of these had much basic numerical model continuity.  It was all over the board.

Best,

Fred
With the help of this Alan Tani site with Fred's expertise, we can identify these numbers and get an idea of line capacity, size, weight, etc of these D-A-M Quicks even though they have numerical model confusion.  Also Roland Lindenbergh's site is a tremendous help.  https://home.kpn.nl/roland.lindenberh/index.html

Can't say the same for many other brands.  I see many reels out there on the net for sale I'd buy, but either the seller fails to give any information on said line capacity, size, or weight, or fails to post a good photo with a ruler or something for size comparison.  Examples are Heddons, Compacs, Japanese Pfluegers and Japanese Shakespeares, South Bend, Olympic, and a few more.  A knowledgeable seller will provide more info.

Perhaps there is a chart out there on reel size comparison I'm not aware of?

Most eBay sellers don't have a clue about the reels they're selling, let alone the wt or line specs. Sometimes you can find an old dealers catalog online like those Heddons, or maybe even a manual. Advertisements and magazine reviews are also a good way to uncover hard to find info, especially if you have an idea when they were first offered to the public.

Also, paid membership to ORCA gains you free unlimited access to the Research Library.  The knowledge, information and camaraderie obtained there is well worth the minuscule membership fee.
