    I have used the system 2 reels sense they were introduced over 30 years ago for, steelhead ,trout and bass. According to 3M, the company stopped production of the reel in January 2012. So if you like this reel, get it when you can find them. Fit and finish is not as good as when made in England, but it is still a very good reel. The price at STP can't be beat.

    Rugged full cage reel that will holdup to both heavy fresh water and light salt water use. Not a more modern large arbor reel.

    Before purchace of this reel I purchaced two spare spools, one of the spools would not fit my reel. After a lot of measuring and comparing with other spools,I found the spool drive plate was too thick. It was a quick fix by filing the two engagement pawls on the plate. Even with the new reel the one extra spool still needed a little more repair. . I have used this model reel 20+ years for trout,bass, and steelhead with out any trouble.
