    Try to get the ones with the gold/yellow trim ring, not the red ones.
    Apparently the red trim indicates gen1.

    Thanks for the reply,
    I have 1 of the Gen 2 reels in great shape and 2 of the Gen 1 reels that need repairs and parts.
    The problem with the Gen 1 reels is the bronze interior gear and the anti reverse pawl wear out and stop working.
    This was corrected in the Gen 2 reel to a steel gear and steel pawl. Very hard to find parts. I may have to get a
    machinist to make some parts for me.
    I'm also in the process of upgrading the drag washers.
