Quote from: Midway Tommy on May 05, 2022, 10:30:36 PMYou need to delve into the Spin-Matics for us one of these days. They're 1964ish and the same reel as the Roddy Gyro, 200, 225 & 250. The same company that made a lot of Heddon's reels, Olympic, made a lot of Roddy's reels.

Quote from: Catching Nemo on May 06, 2022, 03:56:24 PMI know it's sometimes frowned upon to repaint reels...but anyone here have an idea of a spray paint product/name that will match the greenish pearl color for the Heddon spinning reel bodies? I've purchased a bunch of Heddons from eBay--poor cosmetic paint condition, but functionally OK.These are intended to be used, rather than sit on the shelf. But I would like to touch up the paint job a bit anyways.

I got one to go on a Heddon 200 baitcasting splitcane rod.. Also the Heddon fly reels that were imitations of Hardy designs, are good. Four Heddons in this picture but no spinning reels ;-)
