Non-Aerial Centrepins




Although many of the reels listed on this page are considered to be collectable, the majority are highly usable and in some instances even more practical than the more expensive Aerial reels listed on my Aerials & Aerial-Style Centrepins page. It is also probably worth mentioning here that the best value "useable" reels will be ones that are a bit worn, wobbly or of less than perfect appearance. If you have trouble deciding which reel is best for you, please phone to discuss your requirements.

Unless stated otherwise, all reels on this page run on plain bearings, are ambidextrous and in good usable condition.

UK delivery charges will be added when you click the "Buy Now" button.

Reels are listed in roughly alphabetical order by maker or brand name.


I often have more items waiting to be listed, so if you can't find what you want on this website, or would like some help choosing, please 'phone me...
