The PRIDEX is made in a comprehensive range of seven sizes in accordance with modern trend by the latest engineering practice, and is a most popular model.













































Essentials such as Check Work, Bearings, Safe Grip Handle, easy dismantling for cleaning and other details have received every attention necessary in producing a splendid example of mechanism for enjoyable fishing.

Dual sets of check work are fitted making reels suitable for left or right-hand wind; either set is instantly engaged or disengaged with the Check Wheel by simply turning either pawl into or out of position.

A revolutionary Clip-on Line Guard incorporating left or right-hand protection from friction by the line may be fitted as an extra.

The reel is constructed from strong anti-corrosive light alloys intricately machined to reduce weight to a minimum without any loss in strength.

Two sets of hardened steel checkwork are fitted, one for left-hand wind and the other for right-hand wind whichever is desired. Engagement is effected by simply swinging one pawl in and the other out of action as desired.

General features which have made Youngs Fly Reels famous throughout the world are embodied, including Quick Drum Release, Contracted Drum, superbly finished in two attractive colours.

Instructions for lubrication, cleaning and care are similar to those employed on the PRIDEX reels.




1. To dismantle, pull aside the Release Lever at the front and lift Line Drum from the frame.

2. Oil the Spindle, Check Wheel and movable parts of the check mechanism, using a good quality thin oil.

3. To replace Line Drum, pull aside Release Lever, to allow it to go easily into position. Do not use force.

4. A little oil at the top and base of the handles adds to the sweet working of the reel.

5. The centre screw of the Release Cap is for the adjustment of any end-play that may develop through normal wear.

After use remove all traces of moisture and keep your PRIDEX in a dry place.
