VERY RARE C.1907 "THE ILLINGWORTH CASTING REEL" NO.1 2ND VERSION W/CASE & TOOLS!








You are bidding on a very rare casting reel considered by most reel historians to be one of the most important reels in the evolution of the "fixed spool" open faced spinning reel. It is the ILLINGWORTH NO.1 2nd version introduced in 1907. Mr. Alfred Holden Illingworth of Bradford, England introduced his  famous celebrated No.1 Illingworth "Thread Line" spinning reel in 1905. The reel was invented to for the purpose of casting very light lures with very light line. To quote from Wright's Price Guide for the Reel Man "the reel has a thin round body 3 3/4" in diameter of a metal alloy, with a double knob handle(crank) recessed into the body, exposed brass/bronze gears, and the most important feature of this reel is the long narrow ebony spool with two flier arms and two or three wire bail arm system". This second version of the Illingworth No.1 is only different from the first version because it was now marked "The Illingworth Casting Reel" patent 9338 1905 and includes the words "Oil Me Please". Besides being in excellent condition it is most noteable that the original box/case and a couple of tools for it are with it! To quote Ben Wright an authority on open face spiinning reels "These are a masterpiece and any one who has one in their collection should consider themseleves very fortunate!". This reel has not been cleaned or polished and is in excellent cosmetic and mechanical condition! We are members of ORCA & the NFLCC with 100% plus feedback!
