David Slater 4 1/4" Brass/Ebonite Fly Reel - J. Bernard and Son

For sale here is a scarce example of an early brass and ebonite reel made by David Slater and retailed by / stamped J Bernard and Son. Diameter is 4 1/4". Spool width is 1.6". I took the reel apart and found this reel to be in spectacular condition. Caliper check works perfectly and the pawl and gear teeth still retain their sharpness. No wobble or rub on the spool. Reel foot is 3.4" long. Reel weighs 24oz but this includes the full size silk line which I will leave on the reel. It is VERY hard to find an old Slater reel in such near mint condition. It also comes with a D-block leather case which again is in near mint condition.
