A highly collectible Vintage PFLUEGER Fishing Reel, made in the USA by The Enterprise Manufacturing Co. in Akron Ohio (pre-1966 when the company moved to Fayetteville Arkansas)... Model (1983M)1983 Summit 1956,57 Monofiolament Level Wind and Anti-Backlash...this Vintage Fishing Reel is Heavily Engraved and a super Rare Model number (you see the 1993L all over the place, but it's difficult to find anything on the 1983M model!)... this series was manufactured during 1956-1957 and comes Complete with the Original Owner's Guide (manual that names each part of the reel as well as operation and care instructions!), the Original Cork Arbor as well as the Original Drawstring Bag!
This reel probably has the smoothest spin action you'll ever feel... I've never felt one spin like this! :))
The pictures show that it could use a very light cleaning... the engraving is heavy, sharp and decorative throughout... the few areas that are not engraved are smooth and shiny!
In EXCELLENT Vintage Condition with the only things I can find to tell you about are the rubber grommet/gasket at the end that shows signs of age (please see the pictures). I've seen many people discard this piece to make the reel look better, however, as a collector myself, I prefer to have the old piece to match up for a replacement, so I left it 'as is' for you... one tiny slotted screw is missing from the crank area (standard piece, easily replaceable), all as pictured with normal signs of previous ownership over the last 55-56 years on the bag and guide... everything else appears to be there... Easy to use and a Beautiful Collector Piece! :)
From Side to side this reel (not uncluding the crank at all) measures 2 3/8 inches in length and 2 1/8 inches wide/across... measured with the crank it's 2 7/8 inches in length...
Please feel free to email with any questions... thank you very much!
