Vintage Olympic fishing reel

Post by fishhead »

I just recently acquired a VINTAGE OLYMPIC DX DOHZUKI 500 LL LEVELLINE FISHING REEL. Please note that this reel has no star drag wheel from the factory so you cannot adjust the drag pressure at all * (I guess it is a true knuckle buster because the drag is either locked down or you use the anti-reverse lever and the handle just spins backwards, very unusual indeed)

Does anybody know anything about this reel? Please advise.

Thanks Paul Berinson

Paul, would like to see photos - can't tell you much except it was probably made in Japan by Olympic Seiko.
