I waved the ORCA flag today at a local tackle show in Batawa, ON and came home with a few reels including this Manhattan Special 880 combo. I assumed it was a Kalamazoo but not so sure now that I have read prior posts on the topic. I didn't see pics of a Manhattan combo here on RT so here is mine. [I also brought home a few Australian reels- a small Alvey and an Alpha as well as an early Shakespeare Ideal but i that one is a parts reel.] A couple of my remaining ORCA brochures disappeared from my table so maybe we'll get a few more reel collectors in the club? That would be nice.
