REEL INFO: Baymaster - These lightweight reels are ideally suited for light tackle fishing. All reels in the series are equipped with free spool action, sliding click and one-shot lubrication system. (1966 Penn Catalog)
This reel was manufactured for the first time before 1941, with a plastic spool, and wasn't discontinued until the early 70's. In 1941 models were not part of any series, but by 1958 the models #180 and 185 were collected under the name "Baymaster" and the 185-model was added to the series. In the late 80's the metal spool was the default, but the plastic spool was still available as an accessory.
