Looking for a Battenkill II, or Medalist or a 5wt. No Chinese shit. LT retrieve.

If anyone has a St. Croix Imperial 5wt collecting dust, please let me know.

Martin 67A on left. 67SS-A on right. Exposed rim on spool of SS so you can palm drag it.
Adjustable click pawl drag. 70's or 80's vintage. Mohawk, NY made.





I have Medalists. But reversed drag plates to make them right hand wind sucks.
The play and take clicks are reversed.

Want something more flashy?
J.C. Higgins 312.31130. A Sears brand. Bronson made. 50's I think. Simple click pawl.





All 3 1/2" diameter. 4.3 - 5.5 oz.
PM if interested.

Well, the reel was landed at the mailbox last week.  It is all perfect & purdy.  Seems like it would be a criminal offense to use a soon to be antiquity for everyday use.

Haha. Just saw this after I sent you a message. Disregard.
And use it well.
