Garcia KINGFISHER GK 72
« on: March 08, 2022, 08:49:48 PM »
Here is one of 3 Reels and rods given me by Stan Gold he got from a friend whose Dad had passed on and just wanted him to do something with them soooooooooooooooo

Before pix TERRIBLE resolution ,my camera crapped out and had to use this Dino Sour











Cleaning









Back Together with some improvement ( HORRIBLE PIX )





Below pix you can left click once for bigger image  and once again for HUGE

This Reel is well built EXCEPT for the thin plastic side plates but they are  completely encased by the Nice Stainless Steel Covers and I guess they were counting on this to Beef up the structure .
These are MADE IN JAPAN and the Similarities to PENN  112H GUTS is unmistakably DAMN CLOSE and may have been a patent infringement OR a project with PENN to make them under GARCIA name in Japan .
Either way  I don't think they made them  very long . They have Several different sizes in this GK series and some have Level Winds ......more later
