Added one of these to the collection.  Have any of you used one?  It looks and feels like a real sturdy machine, but I can't find any fish stories about it.

The most basic light tackle trolling winch as you will ever find.  No frills, heavy, slow, indestructable.  Too heavy to be called light tackle in todays world.  Too small and not enough drag for trolling in the ocean with a large bait.  They have a great feel to them.

 I have two of them around here some ware . They are set up for wire line trolling .
     Same reel as the 165 and 167 reels, but a narrow version !

The reason ya don't hear many Stories about them as they were made before you were Born and  were sold under many many Ocean City names. Several mods in Widths, gearing ,drags, and Handles through the years and just TUFF as Nails ol Turds...lol Many Reel Makers fashioned their wares after them .These Reels only fetched about 12 Bux new which was a LOTTA MONEY for the time  and were the go to rig for ocean fishing till Penn Wiped them off the map imho.
