Just picked up one of these yesterday in great shape. Questions:

1. Does anyone know what the "T" stands for
2. Does anyone have a 400 series drag star I can buy. This one is missing a spoke

Thanks!

4/0 sized reel, with 500 size drag washers, not a good trolling reel, but great for deep rock fishing.

Thanks Aaron, Rick, I'll see if I can get a picture of it up. It looks like a hybred it has aluminum bars, spool and reel seat like a P series. I don't know how they came out stock. I'll have my brother open it up and see what else it needs.

sunk it
Some very early G’s used leftover P series aluminum parts. Should have a graphite spool though

May be a frankenewell, lol. "g" series always had a graphite spool, a lot better casting than the aluminum.

The bars and base are defiantly aluminum. My Brother has it and will pull it apart. We couldn't tell about the spool. You might be right Rick. Lot's of guys including myself hodged podged those things back in the day. Break one, fix another. Pretty nice piece though.

Don't know why I'm having problems with pics, but I am.
