For your consideration is an R.L. Winston Limited Edition Vintage Reel in RHW in a wood presentation case. This is a 3 1/4" diameter reel with a reel width of 1 1/8" weighing 4.60 ounces. Marked 5/6 on the side of the foot.
The reel shows no signs of use only some oxidization on the Winston name plate, oil port cover, and locking/release knob for the spool which appears to have been caused from the deteriorated foam – this is prevalent in the packaging of these. The spare spool appears mint. Black anodized side plates with gold anodized rims and spool. Oil bottle included in the package. There is a nice booklet with detailed instructions for care and adjusting the drag tension. These reels were produced by Siskiyou Design / Hodge & Sons for Winston in the 1990s while Tom Morgan was still the owner.
