Each reel represents advancements in the design of spinning reels. All the reels have full metal bodies AND rotors.
The approach to spool materials ranges from the same material as the body (Alcedo) to anodized aluminum (Daiwa and Penn) to specialized plastic (DAM). Italy -- Alcedo Erie 2C with spare spool: overbuilt as no other reel to this time; massive gearing; thick walls, blue body with green spool. Japan -- Daiwa Mini Mite: a incredibly well built all aluminum reel with ideas well ahead of its time. USA -- Penn 430SS: all metal, strong, easy to maintain, and built to last unlike the reels after Jarden Inc. Bought the company and moved all production (except Internationals) to China.
West Germany: DAM Quick 220N: already experimenting with alternative spool materials to lighten the reel. Each of these reels is fishable and mechanically sound.
