Allcocks Aerial Centrepin Fishing Reels

Although the Allcocks company of Redditch are more famous for their split cane rods, such as the Allcocks Wizard and Allcocks Lucky Strike, they are famous for one range of centrepin reels – the Aerial.

Original Allcocks Aerials in original well-maintained condition can sell at auction for very high sums indeed, but even very poorly maintained and even badly damaged Aerials are worth a lot of money, as they can be repaired and brought back into use.

In addition to the standard Aerial, Allcocks also produced a version for anglers known as the Match Aerial, and both models are highly sought after, not just for display in a collection, but for regular use.
