Oh all right then...
Daiwa Ventura, Heddon Dominator, Daisy.
Some years back, I was on the trail of the Daiwa Ventura. Nice reel.
Funny thing was, that the reel was essentially identical to Henzes patent for the first Penn International reels.
"?", I said.
Imagine my surprise when I saw a Heddon Dominator... also this essentially identical.
So I asked a reel historian friend of mine about that, who immediately added a tidbit about Daisy also being involved. Don't recall exactly what the details of the whole story right now, since some was in old emails and others on a discussion board whose archives have vanished.
But I did ask a Heddon enthusiast named Harvey about the Dominator. He said that Heddon didn't make it themselves, but rather...?? Who was it again??
I didn't bother to post that at first, since I've written about it before and you could've found it yourself with a little effort and some Googling.
