Valentine Classic Planetary Reels

Unique and Patented Valentine Planetary Gear System- Incorporates two gears, one mounted concentrically on the spool, the other affixed to the crank handle (via a stainless steel shaft and a solid bronze bearing) on an independent crankplate assembly. Interaction between the spool and crankplate is entirely between their respective gears. Gripping the crank handle (and subsequent cranking action) engages the gears, and drives the spool and retrieves the line... quickly and positively. Conversely, letting go of the crank handle disengages the spool and allows the line to pay out... safely. During a ”run” the crank handle naturally gravitates to the 6 o’clock position allowing fingers to be kept at the ready for immediate spooling. In turn, the spool rotates wobble-free due to it’s balanced shape... thus, totally eliminating annoying vibrations. This simplicity of design translates into a cost saving advantage when considering the purchase of additional spools for alternate line configurations.
