The FREEDEX for Spinning

Broadly the FREEDEX operates as other reels built on the ‘Nottingham’ principle. To control when casting use the index finger on the line drum face, or the regulator, or both. The handles remain stationary when the cast is made - disengagement and engagement being entirely automatic. This innovation eliminates revolving handles when the cast is made, adding to the length of the cast and reducing effort and tendency to over-run.

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

DO NOT TRY TO ENGAGE THE HANDLE UNIT FOR CHECKING A RUNNING FISH: SERIOUS DAMAGE COULD RESULT.

A sensitive regulator is fitted, by which suitable tension can be applied to the line drum.

Patent lever-operated check, fitted in a convenient working position.

Patent 'Dimple' handles, indented to give a perfect grip and control when playing a fish.

 

The release lever at the front enables the winding unit to be removed complete - no small parts to lose; the line drum can then be removed from the frame for cleaning and oiling. Both line drum and winding unit can be replaced equally simply.

All details have been carefully studied by Salmon Angling experts who consider the FREEDEX dimensionally perfect and a first class production.

LUBRICATING, CLEANING & CARE OF YOUR FREEDEX

DISMANTLING

1. To remove winding unit, hold release lever and pull the unit gently forward.

2. Remove the line drum by exerting pressure on the underside of the front flange; this will simultaneously withdraw the toggles unit.
REGULATOR (when fitted) SHOULD BE IN THE 'OFF' POSITION.

DO NOT USE FORCE, OR DISMANTLE UNNECESSARILY.

3. Oil the spindle, check wheel, and the movable parts of the check mechanism.

ASSEMBLING

4. Replace line drum, then gently press the toggles unit (which should be an interference fit) on to the spindle into the recess of the line drum.

5. Replace winding unit by holding release lever aside, observing that the cam shaped projection of the latter is placed between the toggles. DO NOT USE FORCE.
