Hi there. I recently was lucky enough to purchase a pair of 441a match reels but noticed one has an external counter weight whilst the other doesn't and the bail off side pivot point arrangement is different. They both appear in museum photos so they must be legit. Which one is more desirable than the other?

Greetings Selebi05,
:sBo_bouncing2: to the Mitchell Reel Museum.

I was hoping that one of the more 440/441 qualified mates would have helped you out, but these are busy times for those folks that have to work for a living.

I have noticed the differences you've asked about with your 441As in the Gallery, but I've had no experience with them. I don't think there are that many of those reels around in the US, so I would suggest checking out eBay, over a period of time, to see if there's a difference in what they bring.

My gut tells me that the one with the external weight might be harder to find, thus worth a bit more.
