Reels today

Always amazes me the engineering that went into these old reels. This Penn 350 is weird by today’s standards. Then turn to a bucket of Shimano Tekota’s Last on the list this weekend is a badly corroded Shimano Torium 30. This has been a project as every step of the way corrosion has ate at…
