From Mr. Godfrey's website:
Now in production for twelve years, the Classics have become the pinnacle design, most popular, and indeed the signature model of Godfrey Reels.
The Classic and actually all Godfrey reel designs that closely followed were born of a love of classic Walker, and Vom Hofe reels. A Walker TR-4 was my constant fishing companion in the 1960's and 70's. It was purchased at the now long defunct Angler's Den in Georgetown, Washington DC.
The Classic features a dependable click and pawl tension system as demonstrated by the Landlocks, and a sweet run-out song that is understood by experienced anglers. The reel has modern design easy take down, easy spool change and left-hand / right-hand conversion. A reel for all anglers who appreciate the best!
