I've had this one for who knows how long. Been a workhorse and still works great. Any idea what year this would be?

   Here's another find from the local auction house. This Pflueger 429 is a large reel, about the same size as a Quick 270. It's a typical "B" type build...some good features...some not so good. The bail was busted, and the drag click wasn't working. Most interesting is the ball bearing, it has a nylon outer race and a soft clear plastic ball retainer. The inner race is steel...as are the balls. This reel was well worn, and that bearing is undamaged and very smooth, so I'm not going to laugh at it just yet.
  In the first pic the red circled area indicates the click spring was merely popped off it's post. The blue arrow points to the sharp nub left behind on the pick up arm after that bail busted. The second photo shows how a Dremel tool can smooth that problem out. I like a bailess spinner. Third we have the parts all ready to reassemble...check out that bearing! The last photo is the reel after servicing. Cool

Good find on the Pflueger, Mo.  I've seen that series on the auction but had no idea what the innards are like.

Cool reel Mo!
That bearing is very interesting, I'm surprised it's held up so well!

I also saw "someone" installing a "reelseat plate" on the cork foregrip and use it like that (without taking the fly reelseat out), seems like a pretty lazy job but the rod looked like a Double purpose rod after that or just go "Mcgyver" and use some "zip ties" to attach the spinning reel  Grin

for my lazy job, I went with the self-adhesive rubber tape ;-)



I like the rod well enough to do something a bit better, don't plan to use this as a fly rod again. It's the Fenwick SF70, a good spinning rod but only so-so as a fly rod..

I've seen a similar type of bearing (but the inner race is nylon too) used on some of the later model Shakespeare 2062's with the newer style handles. The ones I've had with the older style handles had all metal bearings. I just happen to have one apart at the moment so here are a couple of pictures:
