Just thought I would post this pic up to clearly show the difference between the end plates of a Seascape minor and a Seascape standard -

Start looking as the minors are like hens teeth - pm me if you find oneCry

OK, I'm confused! Which is supposed to be which? Large = major & Small = minor?

Thought seeing we have Seascapes up I would post some more info.
 
 
Here are the 3 models.From left to right.Major C1961, STD C1956 and a Minor C1970
Measuring the reels across the frame Pillars IE. the length of the Bars across the reels here are the widths...
Major 67mm or 2 5/8"                          STD 57mm or 2 1/4"                   Minor 35mm or 1 3/8"
 
An old STD Box
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
A very famous fishing tackle association---Sportex and Seascape Reels
The model 3904 Sportex was synonamous with the 6:1 Seascape Reel.

Barry, thanks for the pillar lengths, thanks to that I've worked out I have one Major and one STD. An old workmate gave me the Major for stripping and cleaning his baitcasters, it belonged to his late father-in-law, who had it from new, no boxes unfortunately.
Regards, Tony.

Just spotted this great old thread. I have 8 old seascapes of various models and states of repair. One which I dont know much about is a standard size but with green end plates and no star drag or antireverse spool function. It appears to be approx 2.75 to one and is in very good nick, hopefully Barry or one of the other vintage tackle Guru's can shed some light.






Cheers Steve R !!!

Just my opinion, but seeing as it has no anti-reverse or drag, maybe it is a special for competition casting and never meant to be fished with... Ermm

thanks for your input Ian but the more I look at I think it's just missing bits.
I'll strip it down and have a look at it.

when I 1st started getting serious about fishing, i was given a 6:1 Major (which I still have). 
It was worked on by Fred Denning of Port Macquarie, and I was proud to have oil soaked leather drag washers, that were state of the art at the time. (about 1980)
