Coxon Aerial 3" Circa 1905


A truely superb example of this wonderful reel.  Stamped 25213 with a walnut back plate and brass star back and the optional ratchet check.  We have recently purchased this from a very sincere collector.  He made a fantastic video and placed the video and some awesome close up photos on youtube.com by Len South. A 5 minute viewing of this will make you really appreciate how original and the very good condition this reel actually is !

"Kenny Kendall " 4 1/2" Aerial Centre Pin Reel

A wonderful example of the "Kenny Kendall 4 1/2" Centrepin reel, that spins beautifully with no wobble.  This was produced for the Kenny Kendall tackle shop and can be identified by the recessed flange on the rear.  This centrepin offer very fine tolerances and performs superbly well, being so free running.  It will trot a stick nicely! 
I believe these reels were hand made by a very talented gentleman by the name of Arthur Crampton.
