What a great post. I like the look of the 283,284 and 285. Simply because they are ambidextrous and I am a right hand winder.
Shades of Shakespeare's 2400 series there.
Very nice collection.

   Bravo Chester! Compiling all that took a few minutes eh? A great tool for someone not familiar with the models and thinking about buying one.
   Greg, I'll bet you'd love those 281-284 models. They are my favorite. They have a robust build and feel fantastic. I just snagged a 283 and hope to tear into it this week. Cool

LOL, nope, I own 17 of those 30 models and am pretty much satifsfied with what I have.  My main objective was to get these reels identified as to size and model.  Almost got 'r done, only reel in the group I'm not sure of is the 252.

Here is one more I wasn't aware of until now, the Heddon 250.  It has been added to the above group. Looks similar to the 245.

It appears to have a removable reel foot similar to some of the Shakespeare Sea Wonders.

The last few months have seen probably a quadrupling of the available online info on Heddon spinning reels--all from our AT site.  You've been in the thick of it, festus--thanks.

Wow Chester, amazing post! I've never seen any Heddon's here in Australia, will just have to look a little harder after seeing your reviews...

Cheers,
