Default What's your favorite classic reel?

I have a few of the older classic Martin reels, I like to use on some glass rods. They are old technology, heavy compared to newer reels but they have a lot of character, and really sing when a fish takes line. These are my favorites:

Martin 67SSA- A clicker pawl with adjustable drag. I have a 7 wt. wulff TT bass line on it matched to a Fenwick Feralite 807 glass rod.

Martin 67A - Another fine click pawl reel that I use all the time on different rods from boo to glass. I use 5-6 wt lines on it.

Please share some of your favorites!
