gears , copies and everything you need to know about their correct

Everything in manufacturing changes during production years , pictures
of prototypes are preserved till today are finally shown to collectors,
including the various ABU badge engineered models manufactured for
other brands , and US
version markets , Zebco models , salesman samples, test-colors.

to the last one, will
be found in these pages.
More than 200 different reels
will be discussed and shown with their boxes , original parts on
each model , pictures of original patents and who has designed the
reel or the part in particular order starting since the Swiss Record
reel Company was the first producer , Sportex productions , Zangi
