This is a very nice looking reel with a combination of stainless steel end plates and nickel plated fittings! It is much like the Pflueger Rocket Reel in style include the star wheel type drag control. The included pamphlet states "SERVICE REEL FOR LIGHT SALT WATER AND HEAVY DUTY FRESH WATER FISHING", and the line size and capacity chart show sizes of nylon line from 15-40 pound test, and metal line sizes also. This reel has stainless steel end plates, with a machined finish rather than a plated finish like on the Rocket. This is a very nice clean level wind reel that most likely was never used. We do note that there is some minor finish wear in the area around the side lever with the knurled round knob, as the knob touch the finish, and also a light scratched area abut 1/2 inch away from that same area, appears to be storage wear. In perfect working order! It is marked "SHAKESPEARE SERVICE 1944 MODEL GE" on the end plate. The spool is nickel plated and looks good. It's a nice looking reel with over 99% of it's original finish intact. The end plate diameter is 2.7" and the overall width is 4" across including the handles. Has a good strong clicker and the drag works great! A very nice looking reel, oil it a bit and go fishin! The reel comes with a Shakespeare box, that is marked 1945, where the reel is 1944, but the No. 1942-1945 are basically all the same style reel, it most likely was the original box for this reel. There is also a care for your reel booklet, with illustrations, and a combination wrench screwdriver in the box. A nice reel overall!
