- Patent 4535953: Spinning Type Fishing Reel With Axially Adjustable Spool
- Date issued: August 20, 1985
- This invention improves upon a basic design for spinning type fishing reels. A common problem with spinning type fishing reels is that using unusually large or small diameter line will result in the line becoming unevenly wound around the spool, with more line wound around the front of the spool or back of the spool, depending on the size of the line. The invention employs a knob to adjust the spool axially along the the reel's spindle in order to alleviate the front wound or back wound condition. The patent can be found on Google Patents: .
