Pflueger - 1495 1/2 Medalist Fly Reel
For sale here is an early Pflueger Medalist model 1495 1/2 in good used condition. 3 5/8" diameter with an interior spool width of 1". The reel features a round Diamolite line guard, sculpted pillars, amber pyralin handle grasp and metal spool latch cover. Very strong drum drag and rim mounted tensioner. The frame has the transitional "Patented/Patent Pending" stamp which dates this reel to 1938/1939.Mechanically perfect but shows cosmetic signs of wear. Additionally, the line guard has a hint of play (though the rivets are secure), and the 2-screw reel foot has been crudely filed. Priced with these considerations.
