Its flattened handles are also superior for playing hard-fighting fish. Complete with its spare ratchet pawl and wick oiler. Great value at £75 UK posted. P/ex always considered.

A Trentman centrepin in excellent, original condition. This example has optional handles. In my opinion, there is no better sub £100 reel for trotting relatively fast-paced rivers. The 5" diameter along with a fairly shallow spool allows for fast line retrieval (13" per revolution). Weighs 305g. A knurled rim further aids batting (and braking), particularly in wet conditions. The fairly wide 1" spool width makes line control easier, reducing tangles and line bedding. Note also the ingenious, angled reel seat supports that help guide the line onto the spool. It spins fantastically well, on what must be a high-quality bearing, without wobble. The knob on the backplate operates the drag mechanism, which can be useful to "hold back" when trotting, and when moving between swims. Please be aware that the large reel seat that was designed for sliding collars, does not fit all modern reel fittings. However, this can be modified for a small additional charge. Also comes with a custom designed spool removal tool. £90 UK posted.
