Truthfully, I have never been a fan. I am, however, a sucker for almost anything vintage fly fishing and a multiplier reel is no exception. What if it is in the box with the original paperwork? Score! Continuing to add to my Bronson Reel collection I picked up a Bronson Multi-Royal 380. This reel is a multiplier reel at a 2.5 to 1 ratio. It weighs in at what I would consider a heavy 6 ounces. I understand the older reels weighed more to give some balance to those older fiberglass rods. I have to say that this thing is sexy. It is red and silver in color and looks minty. I'm not sure I am ever going to fish it, but I had to have it. Does anyone use a multiplier reel? If so, do you like it? For now, I will have this guy on a shelf where I can admire it. This gem may have to conclude my Bronson Reels collection... since I now have the 360, 370 and 380. So many reels, so little time.
