               56353. SEAMASTER - SPINNING REEL. Design & 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.
