This real was designed to cast 1/8 ounce to 1 ounce lures with a fly rod, bait rod, or spinning rod.

It was the only fully enclosed stainless steel spinning reel. It was designed so that it can't backlash no matter how you cast it.

It came in two sizes, the model 3-A for 75 - 80 yards of line which was the smaller model, and the model 4-A which had twice the line capacity of the 3-A.
