For sale: J W Young Landex

I am parting with a J W Young Landex anti-reverse reel, quite a rare thing especially in the 4" Salmon size with the 1.75" wide spool.
The one I am selling is in the black finish and has some light wear and markings commensurate with its age, which is something like 60 years old.

I am only selling it as it turns out that these were only ever right hand wind which is annoying as I am left hand wind only.

The reel makes a super noise and the backplate tension brake drag works as does the anti-reverse system.  Would be great on a small double hander or switch rod - even on a heavier weight single hander. The Landex is often quoted as being a trolling reel but, to my mind, it would need a free-spooling ability to be optimal for that. Nevertheless, fly or troll, it will do the job or could be part of a collection.

I think it's great value at 50 delivered in the UK,  65 worldwide.

Drop me a message if interested  :z16
