Sharpes of Aberdeen “The Gordon” 3 1/2 W (About 1970) In good condition.

Price: € 95.- Item nr. 2017006

The Gordon


You don’t see many of those still with the brass screw to fasten the spool. It’s my estimate this particular one is made around 1968. In good condition. The reel foot has some wear on it, as shown in the photograph. It is a wide reel, suitable for #8-9 line with plenty of backing. Nice!
