3 Bellinger wide spool fly reels 2.75' / 3' / 3.25 (like Saracione)
3 x Mark 1 reels. The Bellinger Aluminium trout reels are arguably some of the finest reels of their type ever built. They are precision machined from aircraft aluminium and feature Nickel Silver oil & handle arm caps, a natural highly polished aluminium finish on the aluminium end rings, a ventilated spool, solid Delrin (hard rubber look-alike) side and handle plate, an S-handle with nickel silver handle accents, stainless cross-pillars, an aluminium spool with a bronze center shaft to reduce weight and a weight reducing hole in the foot. Reel is reversible for right or left-hand wind (current set LHW). Photos are from large reel to small. The Mark 1 2.75 is the sweetest sounding Bellinger. Fully anodised and with a ported anodised spool. I was informed that this was actually the very last Mark I to come off the bench. The Mark 1 3 is all anodised rims as well but has a polished un-ported spool (looks really nice). It too has champagne anodised rims.
Mark I Wide Spool 3 1/4. Perforated aluminium winding side plate, solid back plate. This has polished rims (not champagne anodised), spool and handle.
These reels were hand-made by Al Bellinger - who passed away some 3 or so years ago. The reels are becoming rarer and collectibles. Reel will be bubble-wrapped, insured, tracked and require signature.
