56353. SEAMASTER - SPINNING REEL.
& Development of the Seamaster Spinning Reel was underway by 1947. Designed and built
by Bob McChristian (Captain Mack), the Seamaster is thought by most to be the highest
quality spinning reel ever made. The reel was available in medium and heavy duty
sizes. The heavy duty reel came with a larger cup and spool for more line capacity but
incorporated the same body size. Available with either a full bail or manual bail. The
anti-reverse lock was automatic and silent. The gear case was a hand fitted, sealed
waterproof unit.All were a luxurious Gold Anodized color. The earliest models were
manufactured with a large, oversized Red handle knob, while later models have a Black
color knob. No accurate factory records were kept on numbers produced, but it is
generally believed production was 200 to 250 reels. Undoubtedly, that is why this reel
almost never comes up for sale. This is truly the Holy Grail of Spinning
Reels. Mechanically, this early 1950's reel is 100% with signs of
relatively light use. The reel foot anodizing on the top of the foot carries the only corrosion
present as a result of reposing on a brass reel seat for decades. Still viable and
functional, despite this defect. Comes with AN ORIGINAL EXTRA SPOOL in a heat warped
plastic spool case and with the original drawstring leather bag with two seam tears.
Comes with two 8 x10 photos of Capt. Mac and his lovely wife (who built all
their fishing rods) posing with the reel and fish they'd caught. VG+++ $3650.00
