The Good Dr. Elder just disassembled and cleaned the Victory tournament casting reel I acquired at the NFLCC Nationals. Talk about Swedish engineering...

The Swedish reel book is a must have. If all of those small Swedish reel companies had access to the American market in the 1950s and 1960s we would all be collecting Swedish reels and probably be still using a Swedish made product. They are true works of art. Cool tournament reel Mike. Thanks for posting.

Keepin' It Fun!

Cool reel, was not aware of that reel before. Did they make the reel both with paint and without?
