I'm another sucker for intrepid reels. all my first reels were intrepids.
getting a pretty decent collection of them too.

keep the info coming
Hi, Paul. Intrepid have always been special for me too. The New Deluxe was my first coarse fishing reel (and that same one is still going strong today) and the Gladding Intrepid Surfcast (2nd one) was the first reel I ever used for beachcasting.

Here is some great info which TFF member Tonkin Wand sent to me and agreed for me to post here :

Hi Thanks for response. The ' steam ' computer still works. Anglers World Oct. 1963. page10. INTREPIDE IMPROVEMENTS. "K.P.Morritts,Ltd. makers of the intrepide range of reels are forever seeking to improve their already well produced products. in their quest they have installed a fully automatic Efco-Udyline 'junior' plating plant at Merton, one of Morritts three production divisions.The installation was carried out by Electro-Chemical Engineering of Woking. a member of the Efco group of companies. An Acme- Efco semi automatic Rotary buffing machine to work alongside the new plating plant was installed at the same time.The new finish to be undergone by Intrepide components is called Satylite, this provides a satin chrome surface and will increase the long lasting properties as well as the look and quality of the components. Another important factor is that the Satylite finish obviates harsh reflections of sunlight." Regards
