Old Florida reels

Anybody seen these? I've only seen them in Bass pro shops catalog. It has a cork drag and looks pretty inexpensive.
Can't find anything on them though.

RE: Old Florida reels

They are available through "The Lower Forty" (I am in no way affiliated) I'm familiar with the company and have two of their older reels. Feel free to e-mail

RE: Old Florida reels

Old Salt in Hingham also carries them. For the money they are very nice. They have been around for years - somewhat heavy, and not the "prettiest" reel, but built like tanks, simple, and with a huge cork drag.

RE: Old Florida reels

They look pretty good on paper. Does anybody own and what's the positive/negative feedback? Been thinking they're a pretty reasonably priced chunk of metal for the mid-range fisherman. Thanks. DF.

RE: Old Florida reels 3-5-00

I got a good look at them at the Marlboro, MA show. Old Florida had a booth. Constructed well- impressive for the price. Smooth bearings. Saltwater models do not have a quick release spool.
It's likely that someone will have them at a booth at the Shriner's/Wilmington, MA show next week. I don't know much about the company at this time or how the reels perform over a couple of seasons.
